“Inspired by Disney’s release of Tron: Legacy, the British designer Ben Rousseau and architect Ian Douglas-Jones set out to capture the dynamism and essence of the movie at the world-famous ICEHOTEL IN Jukkasjärvi, Sweden.” habitat.com
Here’s the making-of video. And all I have to say is…bad ass. 😉
The electric blue Tron-inspired lighting scheme is achieved by cutting grooves into the ice, inserting energy efficient EL wire and then icing over the wire to keep it in place.
Rousseau’s and Jones’ Tron suite is part of their campaign to launch a new line of illuminated furniture and interiors products due out early 2011.
The creative duo also documented the whole building process on their blog extreme-design.
