007 Elements, an exciting new James Bond experience situated within the summit of the Gaislachkogl mountaintop in Sölden, Austria is now open to the public.
The cinematic installation was officially opened by actress Naomie Harris who plays Moneypenny (SPECTRE, Skyfall) and Jakob Falkner, Managing Director of Bergbahnen Sölden.
After visiting 007 Elements for the first time, Harris commented: “It’s fantastic to be here today at the launch of the brand new exhibition in this amazing location at the top of the Gaislachkogl mountain in Sölden”.
Jakob Falkner said: “It was wonderful to have Naomie here with us to mark this special day. I’d like to thank Eon Productions and MGM for their guidance and support. Special thanks go to architect Johann Obermoser and his team for designing and building the perfect mountaintop home, to Neal Callow, Tino Schaedler and the team at Optimist Inc. for bringing the idea to life by creating this unique Bond experience and our partners Jaguar Land Rover, Omega and Bogner.
“007 Elements complements the wide range of activities we have to offer and firmly puts Sölden and the wider Tyrol region on the map as a year-round destination for sports and entertainment in the Alps.”
At over 3,000m above sea level, 007 Elements is the highest experience of its kind taking visitors on a journey through a series of nine galleries and an outside plaza with stunning views of the Alps. The dramatic spaces complete with an immersive soundscape showcase the fundamental elements that define the James Bond films placing visitors inside the world of 007 and revealing how that world is made. Construction of the 1,300 square metre permanent structure started in May 2017 and was completed just over one year later.
Visitors to 007 Elements will see the original Land Rover Defender and Range Rover Sport SVR from SPECTRE and learn how the thrilling action sequences were filmed in Sölden. Also featured are four James Bond OMEGA watches including the Seamaster 300 from Spectre, the laser watch from GoldenEye, the Seamaster Quartz from Tomorrow Never Dies, and the Piton from The World Is Not Enough. In addition to the stylish uniforms designed by Bogner for the 007 Elements team, several iconic Bogner ski suits worn by Bond are on display.
EON Productions’ Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli commented: “We are truly proud to be in partnership with Jakob Falkner and launching our latest experience, 007 Elements on the very mountaintop in Sölden where we filmed SPECTRE. Architect Johann Obermoser, our Art Director Neal Callow and Tino Schaedler have created a Bondian lair worthy of a Ken Adam set in which visitors immediately become enveloped in the cinematic world of 007.”
