Stora Hotellet Umeå
Stora Hotellet Umeå, situated in the Swedish town of Umeå, has an historically significant and mysterious maritime interior, whose concept alludes to its surroundings, the wharf of the harbour city. The hallways and salons of the old building are adorned with pictures of sea captains, reflecting the spirit of a fascinating past. The interplay between refinement and coarse materials – sail cloths and foam next to velvet and champagne – creates a compelling symbiosis. The interior of the hotel has a maritime ambience, with treasures and bizarre elements, and strikes a balance between the new and its historical legacy.
In keeping with the hotel’s special aura, the GRO HE Veris fittings line was chosen for the bathrooms, harmonising objectivity and emotion. Exuding a sensual minimalism, supple curves alternate with clear lines, creating a fascinating form corresponding to the hotel’s extraordinary design concept.
