The 25th Icehotel is underway – here’s a look at the first official pictures. You can fly direct to the Icehotel with us until March; browse our collection of Icehotel breaks here.

7.5° RØ

Wolfgang Luchow, Sebastian Andreas Scheller, Anja Kilan – Germany

The concept of 7.5° Rø plays with materiality of space. It’s divided into 12 square frames, each tilted by 7.5 degrees to the previous frame, gradually rotating until you reach the bed. “In 1701, the danish astronomer Ole Christensen Romer invented the first thermometer with two fixed points. According to Romer, ice has a melting/freezing point of 7.5° RØ”

Abject Beauty

Abject Beauty

Lotta Lampa, Julia Gamborg Nielsen – Sweden

The artists behind Abject Beauty want to create a platform for contemplation where perspectives change by immersing you in an outsized, sculptural world. “The altered balance in the nature of the objects gives a feeling of change and possibilities.”

Tomaz Czajkowski, Eryk Marks – Poland

Inspired by the cultural melting pot of rural eastern parts of Poland, childhood home of the artists, this suite infuses folk art with traditional craftmanship. “The history of art forgets the unknown artists. […] No one remembers our beginnings, our very roots.”

Hot type in a cold setting

Charli Kasselbäck, John Bark – Sweden

This suite is a celebration to the very core of the art of printing, the magical moment when the type meets the surface and readable words, sentences and texts take shape. “The guest who enters Hot Type finds himself in the middle of the printing process, right in between types and print.”

Edith Maria Van de Wetering, Wilfred Stijger – The Netherlands

This suite is created by a Dutch artist duo that has made some of Icehotel’s most prominent suites in past years. This time, they’ve sourced inspiration from spring, when everything starts to grow again. “The suite will feature ice columns which are hollowed out and if you look carefully, you can see trees inside.”

Two as one

Jose Carlos Cabello Millan – Spain

This abstract suite experience features a set of elegant sculptures that represent the two lovers, and their unity and balance in an icy kiss. “That moment of perfection when two people are united in one single feeling. Complementing each other, moving as one single element.”

Still to come…

The Icehotel opens its doors in December with a few suites still in progress so that visitors can see and appreciate some of the work that goes into creating each Art Suite. The suites should all be completed by the end of January – the following are either still ‘in progress’ or we’re awaiting images.
