Hotel AX is opening its doors to art and the Helsinki art scene – but it is also an art experience in itself. The hotel’s name – the Art Experience – is rooted in the idea of a comprehensive art experience.
The art hotel in the Nordic region has been realised in collaboration with some of Finland’s foremost modern artists. And sitting in the director’s chair is interior architect, designer and sculptor Stefan Lindfors. Finnish modern art is at the heart of the concept. In addition to a diverse collection of works inside and outside the building, AX will be a platform, enabler and gateway for guests into Helsinki culture and artistic life more broadly.
AX RESTAURANT is a new local restaurant opening in Jätkäsaari. The 85-seater AX Restaurant has a relaxed living-room-style atmosphere and panoramic windows opening out onto the urban Jätkäsaari streetscape, which was the main influence on the restaurant’s setting and food profile. AX Restaurant serves lunch during the weekdays and on the weekends, the restaurant serves a delicious brunch.
Follow the winding staircase down to AX UNDER, the hotel’s breakfast and event space, which is bristling with art and surprises. In the summer, the restaurant expands into the courtyard terrace – the oasis-like AX GARDEN. Hotel AX’s own event club, AX Club, brings exciting events and gigs to hotel’s premises regularly.
Hotel AX’s unique rooms serve guests looking for relaxation, as well as more adventurous spirits who yearn for inspiration or an entirely new playground of creativity. Unique artworks, fluffy Joutsen down duvets and natural Dermosil Juuri products in the bathroom create an ideal setting for your visit.
