At Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, art is given special priority around the Hotel's public space. We love to share Icelandic art with our guests and invite them to enjoy inspiring works by local, prestigious artists, such as the painters Kristin Gunnlaugsdottir and Kristjan Davidsson; the sculptor Adalheidur S. Eysteinsdottir; and the visual artist Ruri. Pieces by the aforementioned artists and many more are on display around the Hotel for all of our guests to enjoy and admire.
The Hotel provides 13 unique Art Rooms, each of which is solely dedicated to a modern-day Icelandic artist. The artwork in each room provides a unique experience for the guest with its individual style and beautiful design, making it a real asset to the Hotel.
In addition, two magnificent pieces of artwork strike the guests' eyes immediately as they arrive at the Hotel. The first is a sculpture by Asmundur Sveinsson titled "Gegnum hljodmurinn", which literally translates as "Through the Sound Barrier". The other is a mosaic by Nina Tryggvadottir which is located on one of the Hotel's exterior walls. This is in fact the last piece of art that Nína produced before her death in 1968. Although the piece was never officially given a name, it is often referred to as "I flugheiminum" or "In the world of flying", as it was supposed to represent aviation and speed.
