Åke Larsson, Sweden.
A suite so clean you can drink it, ‘Pure Water’ showcases ice representing just a few seconds of the flow of the world’s finest Torne River water, suspended temporarily until it is gladly returned to its source.
Åke Larsson is the architect of the ICEHOTEL. While putting the final touches on this season’s hotel, he has already begun planning the design for 2008. He is also building a fence of corks to mark the boundary between his property and that of Arne Bergh, his best friend and neighbour.
