Icehotel ice & design
A PART OF ICEHOTEL
Icehotel Ice & Design was born out of the desire for more people to take part in the narrative power of ice as well as its infinite possibilities as a material. For three decades we have used our experience and the beautiful natural ice from Torne River to help other brands tell their story.
A FROZEN MOMENT OF TORNE RIVER
ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
Over the years we have arranged ice settings for events in locations all over the world, from Kiruna to Cape Town. We've built playgrounds, exclusive runways, performed with live ice sculpting, had ice events in the desert, created ice art for decoration at international launches, prepared ice for serving food & drinks and much more.
And most of all we have launched ice bars all over the world – both permanent and pop-up bars serving drinks in the rocks of Torne River ice.
Icebar by Icehotel
The concept originated in Sweden at Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi and has developed into an international Franchise brand far beyond Jukkasjärvi.
Icebar by Icehotel is a complete ice experience that arouses all of the senses. All interiors – walls, bar, furniture, art and drinking glasses – are made of natural ice that is harvested from Torne River in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. These interiors and their contents are kept at sub-zero temperatures to prevent them from melting. To give the guests new experiences, the bar is given a fresh new design once each year. Leading, internationally renowned artists create each new design.
