The word “disruptive” gets thrown around a lot in the art world these days, but IK Lab, a new contemporary art gallery in Tulum, is truly worthy of the descriptor.
The brainchild of Peggy Guggenheim’s great-grandson, Santiago Rumney Guggenheim, the groundbreaking arts and cultural space resembles a high-design treehouse — all curved walls, undulating vine floors, a slatted timber roof, and round windows that look out onto the surrounding tree canopy.
After entering through a 13-foot-high circular glass door, visitors are asked to remove their shoes so as to fully experience the varying, natural textures of the space.
