Project: ICEHOTEL 2/ On Childhood Memories of Velocity & Hidden Treasure Suite (2011/12)

Description: An interior design for room 308 of the ICEHOTEL, an exclusive art exhibition & hotel made entirely of snow an ice some 200 Km above the Arctic Circle in Kiruna Sweden.

Working together with the designer Jens Dyvik, in our participation of the ICE HOTEL for the second time we aimed at offering a playful and pioneering experience in ice and snow which was inspired from our own memories of building snow shelters and tracking through glaciers.

Photographer Nichon Glerum www.nichon.nl joined us there and created the short documentary at the end of this page.

Our work method was based on cavity design - digging in a room filled with snow and slowly forming the main features of the snow scape. Finally working with ice stalagmites and fiber optics we conjured a light atmosphere to the room that corresponds of the rhythm and playfulness of the northern lights.

The highlights of our design were an ice slide and a hidden cave containing a carved by CNC machine block which was made through the use of a 3D scanner.

The ICEHOTEL will be open till April 24th 2012, for more information please check www.icehotel.com.
