We also commissioned or customized a number of pieces including a bespoke table hewn from a single tree trunk, bespoke lighting by Atelier Areti and Rubn and a customized marble Tobo Ishi table by our founding Directors Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.

Our starting point for the Lobby, restaurant and bar interior architecture was the stone cladding on one of the other buildings in the square (Peter Celsing’s Riksbank).

Do you have a favorite piece of art from the collection? Even the simplest of standard rooms feel luxurious, considered and detailed.

The best news is that this place is to be visited until after the New Year's Eve while the rest of Basse Normandie seems to be hibernating...

Tatjana Quax Photography family of Studio Aandacht; Ben Raf Lambers Zara Arif Tatjana Quax art, classical Scandinavian design, and sophisticated, thoughtful interiors all come together at Stockholm’s newest luxury hotel, At Six. The brief asked us to create a desirable, vibrant destination, appealing to both locals as well as international guests, with the aim of becoming the best contemporary luxury hotel in Stockholm.

All of the pieces are by artists already represented in the collection of Petter Stordhalen, the hotel owner so there is a personal connection.

Sune Nordgren has worked as a cultural commentator and art curator for over 40 years.

When we got into the detail we had to work though requirements for each room type, incorporating a mixture of traditional luxury elements (for example a wardrobe long enough to house a Nobel-prize gala dress) contemporary art (hand picked by curator Sune Norgren) and a mix of local and international elements and design.

We wanted every room to feel like a suite so even in the smallest of standard rooms we have clear hallway, sleeping and living zones.So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.Autumn is our favorite roadtrip season riding through melancholic colors, from pine green, mustard yellow, orange terra, wine red to deep browns and the scents that seem to belong to a forest that slowly falls asleep after this Indian Summer ...The monochrome interior contrasts shades of warm grey and highly textured natural materials (sawn stone, blackened steel, fine timber and polished granite) as soft furnishings and classic furniture editions. We kept a pretty constant dialogue with Sune Nordgren the curator* throughout the design process as we both wanted to build in a range of opportunities to showcase the art collection.The aim was to reinterpret the brutalist aesthetic of the building and the immediate architectural landscape of Brunkebergstorg Square in a way that felt relevant, comfortable and contemporary. Collectively we agreed on ideas for the larger scale pieces in the lobby and public spaces as we needed to make sure the architecture was accommodating but as far as the actual selection of specific works went, it was all on Sune who did a brilliant job.Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
