Each year, Sweden’s ICEHOTEL – the world’s original – is reimagined anew, carved from blocks of ice harvested from the River Thorne. After the summer melt, it’s an opportunity for a fresh team of artists and designers to leave their mark on this accommodation icon. And, the first designs for this year’s winter have just been announced, having been selected by a jury of ice experts back in spring. Just 33 artists from 13 different countries have been selected from 150 applicants. The emphasis, as always, is on innovation, with the temporary nature of ice perfect for pushing the limits of creativity.
