Sweden’s famous ICEHOTEL reveals two amazing new art suites inside its permanent 365 building. Firstly; a majestic pillar room plus a multi-sensory space that will take you on an exciting inner journey. You can now stay in these rooms all year round, even in the middle of the summer!
In the middle of summer, a glistening winter world awaits – the permanent 365 building of the ICEHOTEL is filled with art created out of unique crystal clear Arctic ice, a contrast against the lush greenery surrounding the area. The hotel consists of an amazing ice bar, a unique ice gallery and 20 incredible ice suites, nine of them with private sauna to relax, individually created and hand-sculpted by talented artists from all over the world. Visitors and overnight guests can now experience two brand new Art Suites at Sweden’s famous ICEHOTEL.
Like the seasonal suites, each suite inside the permanent 365 building will eventually melt back into Torne River and new art will take its place. And so it is time for a majestic pillar room and a multi-sensory space to be created and revealed. The Deluxe Suite Lost and Found has its own warm private sauna and relax, and its art and design is accompanied by unique music and sound written by poet and musician Petri ”Bette” Tuominen.
The talented artist behind the suite, Jens Thoms Ivarsson, has been creating superb ice art for 15 years, and was previously Creative Director at Sweden’s famous ICEHOTEL. This time it was time to try something completely new – combining music, voices, sound and unique designs.
‘The visitor to the ICEHOTEL is guided into their own inner world, assisted by sound, music and voices. In the room, ice and design is only half the experience, while the other half is the sound and light that interact with each other and take the guests on their own, individual journey.’
A majestic pillar room
The second Art Suite is named Téckara, which means number nine in Kunza (a language spoken in the high Andes), and is created by the sculptor and designer Javier Opazo from Chile in South America. The suite received its name from the nine majestic pillars that stretch all the way up in the ceiling and shows off the suite’s magnificent vaulted roof.
‘I think the visitors are going to feel overwhelmed by the high columns that stretch all the way to the ceiling. It is a magnificent feeling and a ceiling height of 4,7 meters, says, Javier Opazo.
