Architects Claesson Koivisto Rune were inspired by the mist and fog of the Swedish archipelago when they chose the palette for the  Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. Located on a small island, accessible by bridge to Stockholm’s city center, Hotel Skeppsholmen is housed in two buildings that date back to 1699 and were built to house Sweden’s Royal Marines. Using a mix of custom-designed and classic fixtures, furniture, and lighting, CKR have created an urban oasis reminiscent of Arne Jacobsen's iconic SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
