A blend of Paris romance and the wilderness of the Arctic Circle is the theme behind a new suite at the Icehotel in Sweden.
The suite is the vision of French design duo Les Ateliers de Germaine, ‘Up There’ features the skyline of Montmartre carved into its icy walls.
Along with jagged rooftops and the basilica of the Sacré-Coeur, along with chimney pot ice sculptures, backlit windows and a bed frame made of blocks of ice.
It is one of ten suites specially designed ‘art suites’ for the 24th edition of the Ice Hotel, Jukkasjärvi, the world’s largest hotel built from snow and ice which is rebuilt every year.
Other art suites include ‘Mind the Gap’ by Marcus Dillistone and Magdalena Åkerström, which features an ice sculpture of an underground train, and ‘Pole Dancing’ by Christine and Natalie Close, which offers a huge polar bear sculpture as part of its interior décor.
