“Galactic Frontiers” is the 2012/2013 generation of Ice Bar London by Icehotel. It was designed by the founding architect of Ice Hotel – Åke Larsson and myself.
Using the purest ice from the Torne river in Jukkasjarvi, northern Sweden, a team of seven experienced sculptors from Ice Hotel expertly created the bar in 6 long days. The large planet scenes were CNC engraved in Jukkasjarvi along with the stunning model of planet Earth which was hand carved by Mikael “Nille ” Nilson.
43 tonnes were used in total which came in deliveries each day and were loaded and lifted using small pump trucks and mini forklifts. The blocks were carved quickly using super sharp ice chisels , japanese bear saws and electric chainsaws.
