For nearly a quarter of a century, ICEHOTEL has invited dozens of artists to design and construct ephemeral, themed hotel rooms in Jukkasjärvi, a village 125 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden. The artistic duo Christian Strömqvist and Karl-Johan Ekeroth’s recently completed “It’s Alive!” hotel suite marks their third ICEHOTEL design venture, following last year’s UFO-themed room “Beam Me Up.”

To replicate the scene from the original Frankenstein horror story, mysterious gadgetry and other playful scientific props surround a flat slab bed reminiscent of an operating table. A ceiling hatch alludes to the lightning bolts that jolt the Frankenstein monster into life. LED strobe lights are also embedded into the walls and can be triggered to simulate a theatrical electric blast.
