Reykjavik Lights is a new concept hotel in Reykjavik, managed by Keahotels. The hotel design is a collaboration between architecture studio Tark and HAF.

 

Team HAF developed the concept, interior and visual design of the hotel. The concept revolves around Iceland’s ever-changing light conditions and how they reflect Icelandic everyday life. A key element is the hotel’s unique visual calendar. Inspired by the ancient Icelandic calendar ‘Rímtafla’, it reflects the year-round daylight conditions in Iceland.

 

 

The typography and the overall visual identity is inspired by Icelandic runes. It’s made by graphic designer Sveinn Davíðsson.


The lobby hall features a star map of the sky above Reykjavik.
