The call for proposals to design the 34th ICEHOTEL is now open

The long-anticipated call for proposals to design the 2023 iteration of ICEHOTEL in Sweden has officially opened. An annual tradition, a small group of selected artists from all over the world will get the chance to design their own art suites in one of the world’s most breathtaking hotels. Application deadline for this once-in-a-life-time design challenge is April 16, 2023.

Every year, when winter is at its coldest, a frosty gem is reborn in the North. It is around this time that artists from all over the world gather in the most northern parts of Sweden to create the astonishing ICEHOTEL. Now, this year’s call for proposals to the International Design Competition of the 34th ICEHOTEL is open. Are you ready for a frosty design adventure?

We are looking for creatives who want to design a set of unique art suites at this thrilling accommodation. Graphic designers, architects, industrial engineers, artists—creativity knows no disciplines. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is open for all creatives who want to conceptualize a unique art piece, made entirely out of ice and snow. Your canvas: an arctic landscape in -40 °C.

– At ICEHOTEL, artists get a fantastic opportunity to create creative and innovative ideas. Working with organic materials that change according to the season is challenging, and as powerful as nature, says Luca Roncoroni, Creative Director at ICEHOTEL.

The world-renowned ICEHOTEL in Sweden is more than just rooms and beds. It’s an ephemeral art project, made entirely out of snow and ice from the Torne River. Every year, this seasonal gem is reborn in a completely new guise. At its core, each iteration is like a temporary art installation; every detail a unique piece of art, melting and returning to Mother Nature in spring.

– We want the contribution to be a unique expression, innovative, creative, and beautiful. The only requirement is that it must be original and include a bed – and that the idea can be realized with ice and snow. We are looking forward to this year's applications for ICEHOTEL 34, says Luca Roncoroni, Creative Director at ICEHOTEL.

Join us on a voyage far north of the arctic circle. Deadline for submitting design contributions is April 16, 2023. The winning concepts will be announced on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. For more information, reference applications and contact, head on over to
