a very famous hexagon.
A chair for an airport: Berlin Tegel, opened 1974, planned by young architectural office ‚von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp)‘ – and visibly ultramodern with its functional hexagonal grid. The honeycomb principle ensured simplicity, clarity, extremely short distances from cab to plane and fast handling procedures. Meinhard von Gerkan and his partner started with a bang and went on to global fame from here, developing airports and trainstations, the conversion of the Berlin Olympic Stadium and whole cities in China.
Von Gerkan also designed the interior for Berlin Tegel, with seating systems in the waiting areas, not composed of long benches as usual today – but single seats, comfortable and luxurious. Re-painted in the Lamborghini colour giallo corona yellow by our trusted car painter, upholstery renewed. H. 66 x 71 x 80 cm.
