Ege Carpets and Designer Tom Dixon unite Swedish nature with pulsating city life

(Last Updated On: September 19, 2018)

Downtown Camper by Scandic is Scandic’s third signature hotel in central Stockholm.

Located in the heart of the city and at the same time only an arm’s length from the beautiful Swedish scenery, the newly opened hotel intends to be an urban resort and a destination in itself.

Architect:  Pia-Cally Wendt, Stylt
Quality:  Highline 80/20 1400 (wool/nylon)
Design:  ReForm Memory, Industrial Landscape by Tom Dixon & Metropolitan

A strong hotel concept reflected in every single detail

Very true to the conceptual ideas behind Downtown Camper by Scandic, the architecture and interior design is modern and playfully combines the softness of the nearby scenery with raw city inspired elements like concrete.

To create the perfect conditions for spontaneity and social intercourse whilst also making room for privacy and relaxation the unique Camper Co-Living room category plays an important role.

As an example, up to 12 people can connect their rooms with a shared area to create their own room constellation with friends, family or business partners.

Bonfire gathering in the restaurant

In the Campfire Restaurant, hotel guests gather around the primitive force of the flames to enjoy world kitchen recipes referring to childhood memories, picnics and seasonal changes.

Thus, the menu card represents ingredients from the Swedish woods mixed with shellfish from the Mediterranean Sea.

Opposites attract and unite with carpets

For the hotel corridors, a ReForm Memory design is specified to utilise the acoustic advantages of the carpet material while creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere as well.

The design is carefully chosen to create the feeling of following a forest path in the middle of the night – and only illuminated by torches.

The meeting rooms Night Wood and Cocoon are equipped with designs from the Industrial Landscape collection designed by ege carpets’ designer friend Tom Dixon.

Thus, the designs Tide in green hues and Smoke in a stunning blue colouration manifest the urban nature theme.

For the Boardroom, the Stylt team specified a tartan pattern from the Metropolitan collection.

To create a wilderness hotel feeling the rug is shaped like a bear (yes!) and recoloured in classical orange, beige and dark grey tones and accompanied by a gigantic wooden table.
