Apartment in Stockholm Encapsulating A Glass-Walled Bedroom

This small apartment in Stockhom, Sweden impressed us with its original layout and stylish decorating scheme. Discovered by Freshome on Svensk Fastighets, the 34 square-meter crib displays comfortable living spaces with a powerful aesthetic appeal. The first interior you are likely to observe upon entering this apartment is the bedroom, creatively separated from the rest of the project through glass walls. Pebbles under the bed, a giant mirror and framed graphics contribute to the Scandinavian personality of this space. A series of accent items such as the coffee table, the candles or the fireplace give the apartment a mixed ambiance, a touch of rusticity and  traditionalism, connecting the crib with the historic character of the building. The living zone, kitchen and dining table are organized in an open layout. And when it comes to Scandinavian apartments, an irresistible terrace is a must. In this case, the small balcony extends living spaces, creating a charming venue for having coffee and breakfast during warm summer mornings.

Sweden’s Famous Ice Hotel

Sweden’s famous Ice Hotel, known for its individually designed suites carved out of ice and snow, is offering guests the chance to design their own bespoke suites for winter 2014. The suites, set to be available starting in December, will be made exclusively to order and guests will be involved in the design process, getting the chance to work closely with the ice and the resort’s ephemeral art. The suites will be made from the exclusive natural ice from the river Torne and feature original handmade art work. Once the client has left, the suites will be left to melt into the river with the spring. Guests will be given a bottle containing some of the melted ice, along with the sketches and blueprints for the design, and photographs of the suite. Located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Ice Hotel has been a pioneer in ice art since its launch 25 years ago.

French carmaker has teamed up with esteemed hookah manufacturer Desvall to deliver perhaps the most decadent smoking device seen since that oversized Cheech & Chong joint. It’s handmade in Sweden with a solid titanium frame, special edition carbon fiber casing, hand-sewn leather stitching, and it features Desvall’s own pivot technology which lets the hose do a complete 360-degree rotation around the base.

Sweden based Humans since 1982 teamed up with Australian engineer David Cox to accomplish this mind bending clock concept. This artistic clock re-contextualizes time in a mix of old and new, analogue and digital. The clock is made of 24 two-handed analogue clocks. Six clocks make up a number, each of them displaying either one of its corners or one of its sides. All 24 clocks create one giant display similar to that of a digital watch. This work is notable for its digital/analogue format and the choreography that takes place between the minutes.

Skipark 360.


Sweden’s CF Møller Architects has just signed off on the new and spectacular Skipark 360°- set to be the largest indoor ski resort in the world.  The winter park will house the only indoor ski slope to meet the requirements for hosting the World Cup, measuring 700 meters long and with a drop of 160 meters.  At a height of approx. 135 m, it will be one of Sweden’s largest buildings, and will become a landmark in the forest landscape just outside Stockholm.  The complex will also contain a 3.5 km cross-country skiing tunnel, an arena for biathlon, ice hockey, bandy and figure skating, and a snow park for snowboarding.  There will also be restaurants, shops, a spa and hotel and conference facilities, offering panoramic views of the countryside.  Skipark 360° is estimated to cost between 1.5 to 2 billion Swedish kroner ($219 – 292 million), with work to start at the end of 2013.
