ICEHOTEL 2013 - Luxury Retail
Art Suites, Jukkasjärvi – Sweden
Using only frozen water from the Torne River, artists from all over the world gather in Jukkasjärvi to create an exclusive art exhibition: ICEHOTEL.
The art is created with imagination and hard work, only to melt away under the unforgiving rays of the sun come springtime. All that remains are our impressions, our memories – and photographs.
Artists from all over the world gather in Jukkasjärvi
Each year, artists from around the world gather in Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, for the art project that has become known as ICEHOTEL. Every winter sees a brand new design with a mix of first-time and returning artists, all hand-picked by the Art & Design Group at ICEHOTEL.

” In November, Jukkasjärvi becomes a melting pot of influences, cultures and languages; all coming together to create art – it is a fantastic journey to part .” Jens Thoms Ivarsson
