Nobis Hotel, Stockholm
Last month I unexpectedly hopped over to the Stockholm Furniture & Light Show for 48 hours, and chose Nobis Hotel as my base during my stay. This was my second time visiting Stockholm, last time I chose Lydmar, but Nobis had been on my radar for a couple of years, and I haven’t stopped raving about it since. This is one seriously design conscious hotel, one of Stockholm’s most desirable places to stay and I can understand why. Located in two historic late 19th-century buildings on Norrmalmstorg Square in the heart of the city, I finally understood the geography of Stockholm after staying here.
Claesson Koivisto Rune was the man responsible for the design, his studio took inspiration from Sweden’s wintry colours, from those winter days, when the light is weak and flat, think subtle colours, pared down tones. Much of the interior objects were designed specifically for the hotel, the armchairs & desk lights in the bedrooms, and the Orsjo Baklava lights in the hotels living room. Spot the Moooi Random lights hanging below in the hotel lobby. There is just such a beautiful mix of incredibly iconic design at Nobis, passing many people by as just a cool looking hotel. Not to me, I can see and understand it. The use of scale, colour and texture, I would recommend anyone stay here, there is a corner for everyone…
It’s just a shame I didn’t have time to try out the sauna! Next time then. For more information on the design & how to purchase a selection of the pieces shown in the images just click here.
