Scope of work Conception, design and realisation
The net is part of the new design for a pavilion at the University of Frankfurt. The hall was built in the late 60s and is used by students having a break or meeting friends for a coffee. In the course of complete interior reorganisation, old sofas had to be replaced and the room had to be visually sanitised. Therefore, we had the idea to place in a 90 squaremeters net structure where up to 15 people could relax. Form-finding studies had been carried out on a physical and structural model. The final net structure was a big success and was featured in two newspapers.
Frankfurter Rundschau "The biggest hammock of the city".
Frankfurter Neue Post "... keen net structure, that gives the hall a new look, but does not constrict the user's flexibility".
