REYKJAVIK: The Oddsson Hotel in Iceland

Hotel Oddsson / Reykjavik, Iceland / Design by agency Dödlur



Have you ever been in Iceland? I do, and the next time that I pass trust me, is where I'm going: TheOddsson Hotelor a gem of design located at only 10 minutes from the city center of Reykjavik. 

It is true that there is no shortage of hotels with refined interiors in terms of design in Iceland and the northern countries in general. But this one has something special for me... Imagined by theIcelandic agency Dödlur, that's 3 reasons to be interested in this project AND to spend your next vacation:




First, let's start by admit that this hotel is absolutely borrowing of Scandinavian style. It smells like the spirit of the North, from the lobby to the bathrooms, with this perfect mastery of the associations of colours and styles. This fluidity between materials, same opposites, reminds me of the shops Acne Studios designed by the architecture firm BozarthFornell (Sweden).

The lobby makes me want to spend hours reading a good book ofArnaldur Indridasson*, sipping mojitos where a nice hot tea according to the period... It's very simple, I want to try all the sittings that are there, while nourishing my mind and my eyes of this "Mix and match "of furniturefurniture set.

Both cozy and soothing, rooms are all equipped with a very wide window, like a picture of the sea

The main lines of a project that we might like are therefore outlined. But what about the details? It must be said that this part has also been very well cared for. This hotel was built in the spring of 2016, and therefore had to display some current headlight and trendy parts. Thereby, we can see the Utrecht Chair designed in 1935 by Gerrit T. Rietveld and edited by CASSINA, ( presented coated of the "Boxblocks" fabric by Bertjan Pot at the Milan Design fair. This Special Edition is available in 3 colours, each limited to 90 copies ). In the rooms, you can also sight the very cult Parentesi lamp of Achille Castiglioniedited by FLOS.

In addition Dödlur and Stass Architects have created a Chair of the same name the hotel, especially for this place, you won't see so that there! ( #exclusivity ! ) I love this Inspiration "Folding Beach chair" with very trendy colors, and high-end materials and finishes.

That is good news. The hotel also the Bazaar restaurant, bistro and bar, which is be a choke. The restaurant offers home made cooking and inventive, whose colourful associations will bring a touch luxury décor... which in fact is sufficient in itself! Gross industrial ceiling, Oddsson chairs and this turquoise/hazelnut color cast always there: effect 70's guaranteed !

In addition, these little touches of architectural humor scattered all over (note this false hidden window!) is earning points in this space. Because after all the humor, it's needed even while eating, not is it not?
