The TRON Suite

At first I wasn’t a TRON fan, but it has definitely grown on me. After seeing this TRON Suite at the world-famous Swedish Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi, I might have to watch the movie. The designers of this suite, Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas-Jones, utilizing ultra-low energy lights that appear to be frozen in or behind the ice—brilliant!

The whole thing reminds me of a nightclub. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised to see a night club made of ice pop up next door to the hotel sometime soon. What are your thoughts on this—would you stay here?

Ice night club? What, you think we got constant permafrost and polar bears wandering the streets of Stockholm?

I wish.

The ephemeral quality of the place is what bugs me, at least in theory. Do the rooms eventually melt? How do they feel to the touch?

But I must applaud the design attempts, it’s a great idea and I wish more hotels would do this. However who would want to get just a room and get stuck with something like the rickroll room :))

when are we going to see another process video from Alex or Scott?

I also question the same thing—but I believe they must cool the rooms.

Also you’re going to see a large process post from a project of mine on Monday. Definitely something to look forward to.

awesome :D really looking forward to it :D

i just love those process posts because all of you guys have such attention to detail and such passion for your work :)

one other irk about this though: why don’t you use disqus on your site? or some sort of reply notification mechanism? i have so much stuff going on i usually forget to check on posts like these where i comment. skinning disqus isn’t that easy but implementing it is.

Don’t think i could fall asleep unless the lights dimmed to pretty much black.
But im a huge TRON fan! I’d rather have that look in a night club, that would seems to fit the essence better. The fact is, that type of ambience is stimulating and when im sleeping, i want the exact opposite.

Plus it would probably make my already pale body look like a jelly fish. Ladies wouldnt be a fan.

They actually build a new icehotel every year. It melts dow in spring an then they build it again with new designs every autumn…
