Ice Hotel reveals designs for 30th anniversary edition

Designs have been released for the latest edition of the famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, northern Sweden, which this year is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

There were 126 applications from artist teams across 34 different countries who wanted to be part of designing the hotel.

From the applications, 15 teams were chosen to create the designs for the hotel, which will open on 13 December. In addition, three teams received a special invite to create the new main and ceremony hall, as well as the Icebar in the year-around hotel area, Icehotel 365.

The concepts chosen for the project include “Bone Room” by UK artist and sculptor Robert Harding; “Spring Dream” created by Chinese duo Zhao Lei and Zhao Yong; and “Tip of The Iceberg” created by Franziska Agrawal, an industrial designer and artist from Germany.

Luca Roncoroni, creative director at Icehotel said: ”It’s been a challenge to choose between all the amazing design ideas, but I believe we have ended up with a great mix of expressions, themes and playfulness for this year’s Ice Hotel. This winter will truly be something special.”

Roncoroni added that another addition to this year’s hotel – a viewing platform, where guests can see the surrounding landscape and the Torne River – was in honour of the river, “without which the Ice Hotel wouldn’t be celebrating 30 years of fantastic artwork”.

The Icehotel was founded in 1989 when Swedish entrepreneur Yngve Bergqvist launched the concept. Within three decades the hotel has had more than a million visitors.

As the hotel gears up for it’s 30th winter, Bergqvist said: “In 1989 we had no idea how much attention a hotel made of ice and snow would get, but here we are, ready to celebrate Icehotel’s fantastic history as well as exciting future.”

The art exhibition will be created when the snow first hits Jukkasjärvi, which is expected to be around mid-November.

The snow, ice and light will then transform the destination into “Icehotel #30”.
