‘iceberg suite 315’ – hotel room carved from ice by wouter biegelaar for ice hotel

 

 

every year, artists and designers are selected to construct an icehotel suite during the months of november and december – multi-disciplinary designer wouter biegelaar was asked to create the latest iteration called ‘iceberg suite 315’. every part of the room is carefully carved from ice – even the tufted walls which then melts away during the late spring. by day the rooms form the gallery of the hotel, visited by 30,000 people every winter, and slept in by 15,000 international guests during the season.

biegelaar says of his concept for the icehotel suite:

‘the main object in the suite is one piece of furniture where you can lounge, sit and sleep. the walls look like they are upholstered like a chesterfield couch. an iceberg in a soft environment – emphasizing the characteristics of the two materials where snow is soft and easy to form and ice being hard and ‘sharp’.’
