Icehotel #26 - Luxury Suite 322 "The Great Escape" by Marjolein Vonk & Maurizio Perron - see the making of, and their incredible ICE SWINGS!
"We are just back from the Arctic, where we build the luxury suite of the Icehotel "The great escape" After months of thinking, designing, and dreaming, we finally get the chance to fly up there and make it real. We started thinking about the concept of Luxury. Maybe is not anymore to have everything, to be able to eat strawberry in winter, to have your phone in every far corner fo the world. Maybe luxury now is freedom. Freedom to spend time as you like and as you want. Even make a treehouse, and spend time in it. So, we decided to send over our idea, and in a bunch of more then 400 proposals, they chose us to make the most exclusive suite of the most known Icehotel. We are very proud and happy of the result, and the first guest who stayed in the suite, are happy too. Here few pictures of the result, and a link to my blog, where you can find the daily diary of the working process, and a timelapse of the 3 weeks spent in the arctic."
