After discovering designer T Michael, Norway has been on the forfront of our minds as of lately an since travel is of utmost importance to us we began looking for hotels in the area and discovered a gem. Our buddies or at Design Hotel told us know about Oslo’s first waterfront hotel, The Thief which it set to up this January. Located between the iconic Astrup Fearnley Museum, the Oslofjord and the canals of Tjuvholmen Island, the gradient façade of the hotel will introduce guests to the city’s new cultural center with fantastic views of the fjord and exciting new architecture. The site of thieves, prostitutes and shady activities in the 18th century, Tjuvholmen today is home to one of Scandinavia’s most exciting urban renewal projects. The finest contemporary art, architecture and gastronomy are taking over the island.
Within the walls of the hotel, The Thief will reflect the avant-garde spirit of its surroundings. The best of contemporary art will sit alongside upcoming local pieces, handpicked by a world-class curator, and furniture by design greats mixed with those of upcoming Norwegian designers. Video art-on-demand will be another exclusive highlight at this new Design Hotels member property.
From readying the hotel’s boat for guests to explore the Oslofjord, enabling smart phones to be used as room keys, marking out the best jogging route to offering custom-made caviar, The Thief will whisk you away into a world of new impressions. The Thief offers the utmost in luxury by creating an individually tailored experience for each customer. No matter if you’ve come to Oslo for its thriving cultural and culinary scene or rapidly expanding business opportunities, if you’re looking for a memorable setting for your next conference or event, if you simply wish to stroll along Tjuvholmen’s pristine waterfront or wander between galleries on the peninsula’s car-free streets: whatever it is, The Thief will provide it for you. #WorkHardTraveWell
