What makes At Six special is that it stands out from the usual "Scandinavian design" interiors prevalent in Stockholm. You mentioned this concept of bringing together an international outlook and attitude while creating an experience grounded in the local area.

Can you tell us more about the Stockholm elements in the design?

All of the pieces are by artists already represented in the collection of Petter Stordhalen, the hotel owner so there is a personal connection.

Sune Nordgren has worked as a cultural commentator and art curator for over 40 years.

We also commissioned or customized a number of pieces including a bespoke table hewn from a single tree trunk, bespoke lighting by Atelier Areti and Rubn and a customized marble Tobo Ishi table by our founding Directors Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.

Our starting point for the Lobby, restaurant and bar interior architecture was the stone cladding on one of the other buildings in the square (Peter Celsing’s Riksbank).

The monochrome interior contrasts shades of warm grey and highly textured natural materials (sawn stone, blackened steel, fine timber and polished granite) as soft furnishings and classic furniture editions. We kept a pretty constant dialogue with Sune Nordgren the curator* throughout the design process as we both wanted to build in a range of opportunities to showcase the art collection.

We wanted every room to feel like a suite so even in the smallest of standard rooms we have clear hallway, sleeping and living zones.

We discovered parc de la Ferté-Vidame by chance, with the magnificent ruin of the castle that appears to be made of cardboard when you look at it from the side.

The castle is mirrored in the surrounding lake; a facade of lost romance perfect to celebrate the melancholy of the season.

It’s a contemporary space, with an international outlook but we strongly felt that elements of the interior needed to draw their cues from the building and square.

In keeping with the period of the building, we specified lots of 20th century furniture pieces including re-editions of classic Scandinavian pieces (chairs by Nils Otto Moller, Poul Kjaerholm alongside other classic European design: Perriand, Albini, Scarpa) .
