The Ibis Styles Sarajevo connects the past and the future

17 July 2019

Thanks to the work of the MIXD studio, the interior of the Ibis Styles Sarajevo hotel preserves the history of the city, with an eye on the future.

In recent decades the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina has rediscovered half of tourism, in fact, contrary to what you might think, Sarajevo was not wiped out by the war in Yugoslavia in the 90s. On the contrary, it has managed to get up and has managed to make its multicultural and religious heritage, its architectural beauty and its history in general shine and stand out. One of the fundamental and turning points of this city were the 1984 Winter Olympic Games. It was precisely this event that inspired the design studio MIXD to create the interiors of the Ibis Styles Sarajevo

The hotel has recently opened and has found its space occupying both an existing building and a brand new skyscraper and developing on fifteen floors that house 192 rooms. But the special feature of the Ibis is the common spaces, where everything is connected to the Winter Olympics, from the portrait of the wolf Vućko, the official mascot, above the fireplace, to the illustrations of the Polish Karol Banach. Even the use of materials is not accidental, and so we see rough concrete surfaces that contrast the exposed ceiling, but also with the furniture in handcrafted wood. A real touch of class are the seats made from snowboarding boards hung from the ceiling like swings.
