The Bolder Sky Lodge
A night in the clouds
Two one-legged cabins float high above Norway’s Lysefjord. These fully equipped, compact accommodations known as The Bolder Sky Lodges have been ranged by Forbes Magazine as one of the world’s 25 surprising places to sleep. And with views from this breathtaking vantage point, you are as close to sleeping in the clouds as you will ever get. Vipp is proud be a part of this avantgarde architecture project and to present yet another remarkable hotel room where you can test-drive our kitchen.
Tom Norland, entrepeneur and owner
'My intention was to give visitors a front row view to one of the best-known fjords in the world. The border between inside and outside had to be blurred to convey the feeling of floating in nature.'
Architecture on the edge
In 2010, Tom Norland bought 170 hectares of untouched land with unspoiled view. Initially, his plan was to build a series of smaller hermit huts, but he realized that this nature plot deserved something better. Something daring. With this brief, architect John Birger Grytdal from Norgeshus imagined a two-floor cube with floor to ceiling glazing wrapped in Canadian cedar wood balancing on one steel pillar drilled 3.5 meters into ground.Visit The Bolder's website
Cooking with a view
The Sky Lodges measure 22 square meters of living space and include kitchen and dining space, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The interior is carefully curated to harmonise with the view: dark oak ceiling and walls, concrete flooring and a dark-toned décor dominates the space. Tom Norland chose the Danish design company Vipp for its timeless and functional design. The shop, Element Studio in Norway has provided the interior from Vipp ranging from kitchen, furniture and lighting to tableware and accessories.
