, the last project of Stylt Trampoli
studio, is a venerable old hotel with a saltwater‐stained past, in Umeå, way up north on the Gulf of Bothnia. Inspired by the city’s seafaring heritage, KriskaDECOR
has given the hotel a sumptuous new look where the refined meets the rough, just like the high society once met the sailors in the hotel’s parlours and dining rooms. KriskaDECOR
delivered amazing multi-‐coloured chain curtains for the lobby and reception area.
Approximately 95 KriskaDECOR curve curtains
decorate the lobby’s ceiling. And the colours used are the satin brown, satin black, satin coffee, satin green and shiny emerald. The colours selection pretend to recreate the seabed colors of the sea and seabed algae.
Umeå, a city of about 120,000 on the Bothnian Bay in northern Sweden, has a long and proud maritime history. That heritage is the inspiration behind the remaining of the venerable hotel by Swedish concept - and design agency Stylt Trampoli
, which has resulted in the splendor being brought back ‐ along with the scent of the sea.
“The whole concept is about contrasts - velvet and sailcloth, sea spray and champagne,
” explains Erik Nissen Johansen
, founder and creative director of Stylt Trampoli
. “We have let the ocean back into the elegant parlors of the hotel.
("Grand Hotel") was built in 1895 with funds provided by the local Seamen’s Mission. The building housed the finest hotel in town as well as the Mission’s own offices. It was a meeting of two worlds -‐ high society, and even royalty, rubbed shoulders with the captains, sailors and old salts off the ships in the harbor.
