At the heart of Bad Gastein, a youthful undercurrent is stirring. Once a refuge for emperors and empresses seeking the healing powers of nature, the village has been somewhat forgotten in recent decades. Today, thanks to a small but mighty creativity community, the pocket-sized paradise is slowly re-emerging from the shadows of its former self - and for good reason.
Stay tuned as we shine the spotlight on some of Bad Gastein’s latest happenings and Europe’s finest talent through a series of collaborations with gallerists and artists.

the cōmodo shines the spotlight on some of Europe’s finest artistic talent. This time, we’ve enlisted up-and-coming Berlin design agency Fundamental to create a series of vases and candleholders for the hotel.
the cōmodo x Iwo Borkowicz
Acclaimed architect and sculptor Iwo Borkowicz strives to convey the relationship between classical beauty and mundane awkwardness – in spaces, places and art. His latest work includes a piece for the cōmodo – a sculpture inspired by Bad Gastein’s snow, and its finite availability.
Barbara Elwardt is a Berlin based architect and the owner of the cōmodo. Together with Professor Klaus Lattermann she founded the office Elwardt Lattermann Architekten in 1998, later changed to ioo, reflecting the firm's interdisciplinary approach. Barabra purchased the building where the cōmodo is now in 2019.
