The Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden

Don't let the unassuming exterior of the Nobis Hotel deceive you. Designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune, the interior of this 5-Star hotel has a contemporary/modern appeal wrapped in a traditional exterior... 
The extravagant Gold Bar, the French-inspired 24/7 bistro, the generous lounge, the Italian trattoria Caina on the floor below, the relax area clad entirely in marble and the conference section with its original wooden panelling preserved have each been given a distinctly different character. Despite this, each space flows into the next so that the spatial context is strong.

The color scheme and lighting design is also warm and subdued throughout. We call it Scandinavian dark blond. Another recurring theme is subtle patterns, in many cases derived from our own abstracted architectural drawing. Like the corridor carpeting and the wallpaper in the conference section.
Apart from the fixed interior features like, for example, the reception desk in rusted shipping steel, a large number of new furniture design, textiles and lamps have been developed specifically for the hotel.
