Located in Stockholm, Sweden, Hotel Skeppsholmen was designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The starting point of the design process was the word ‘fog’, describing a natural and eternal phenomenon of enchanting beauty inspiring to contemplation, as well as relating to the surrounding waters and Hotel Skeppsholmen’s marine historical past. From that idea forward, materials, surfaces, furniture, lighting, colours, etc. were chosen to create the hotel environment. A conscious choice of a restricted palette of greys and very light colours – partly inspired by the Swedish Gustavian style – was chosen to connect the hotel with its historical heritage. Yet all the bathrooms, lifts, furniture, and a series of light installations, was executed in a very contemporary way. Furniture and lighting was largely designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune.
