007 installation coming to Sölden this winter

A new James Bond cinematic installation is coming soon to Sölden, the Austrian town where scenes from SPECTRE were shot.

A unique James Bond cinematic installation will open this winter at the top of the Gaislachkogl Mountain next to the ICE Q Restaurant in Sölden. The iconic location was used in SPECTRE as the Hoffler Klinik and formed part of the snow chase sequence in the film.

Cable Car Companies Sölden is creating a bespoke new building to house the 007 installation, embedded into the top of the mountain, designed and built by award-winning architect Johann Obermoser. The innovative, dynamic space is inspired by the work of visionary James Bond Production Designer Sir Ken Adam.

Cable Car Companies Sölden is one of the Alps leading ski lift companies, the company is proud of its architectural masterpieces in the Sölden ski resort. These include the Big 3 (viewing platforms on three different 3000-meter-high mountains), the two most powerful cable cars in Europe, the Gaislachkogelbahn and the new Giggijochbahn, and the spectacular Ice Q restaurant on the summit of the Gaislachkogl. Sölden enjoys the second highest number of guest nights in Austria, second only to the capital city of Vienna.

The concept for the installation has been designed and developed by Creative Director and James Bond Art Director Neal Callow (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre) together with Optimist Inc. Head of Design, Tino Schaedler, and his team.

Commenting on the announcement, Jakob Falkner, Shareholder and Managing Director, Cable Car Companies Sölden said:

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Eon Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to bring Bond back to Sölden by creating a truly unique experience in the heart of the Tyrol region. Together with the many exciting and varied activities available in the area, this James Bond installation will strengthen Sölden’s position as a year-round destination for sports and entertainment.”

The name of the cinematic installation and further details about the visitor experience will be released later this year.

No details have been provided other than the illustration above, but presumably the “cinematic installation” will comprise of an exhibition mainly devoted to SPECTRE, perhaps an audiovisual element and the inevitable gift shop.
