Stockholm For Free

Elvine and ‘Scandic Malmen’ aim to enhance the cities cultural quota by offering free accommodation to the travelling creative.

Text by Martina Randles

Elvine, the functional Swedish clothing brand have collaborated with Scandic Malmen hotel to offer the traveling creative somewhere to rest their heads for free. The concept of Creators Inn began in Gothenburg; moving north to Stockholm is the first time the project has spread from its founding city and creating a hotel-within-a-hotel. The space at Scandic Malmen has been customised to accommodate the traveling creative, and comes complete with luxurious Creators Inn branded toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. The hotel can be found in Sodermalm, great for tapping into the live music scene and immersing yourself in everything Stockholm has to offer.

If you are wondering where the catch lies? Spaces are extremely limited - the room only being available between 13 August and 1 September 2009, to be considered you must apply online with an explanation of why you fit the brief. The project hopes to further enhance the cities cultural interplay by drawing creatives to the area, creating a hotbed for musicians, artists, writers and designers.
