Call for entries: European Architectural Photography Prize 2017

Borders define the beginning of one area or the end of another. The European Architectural Photography Prize is presented every two years and its theme this time is borders. The brief describes borders as being “tangible, clearly defined or subtly perceptible and are considered to be in place for protection or to act as a deterrent”. However, the European Architectural Photography Prize 2017 doesn’t want the emphasis to be on negative interpretations of the word by any means. The focus is primarily on the environment and the buildings on it and grappling with it from a photographic standpoint.

The new Wilkhahn campaign – reaches for the sky

The first visual chosen for the new Wilkhahn ad campaign might not be totally unfamiliar. In the foreground you can see our IN office chair and behind it the roofs of our pavilions which accommodate our manufacturing facilities.

A feel-good environment: Inspirational offices for system-catering company in Munich

System-catering company L’Osteria owes its success to authentic, Italian cuisine enjoyed in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere. The franchise company has already opened around 50 restaurants in German-speaking countries. Now the company wanted to fit out headquarters at its Munich birthplace to match. They were seeking a concept that translates the restaurants’ informal atmosphere to a contemporary office environment. Interior designer Axel Frey came up with a design and colour scheme that in combination with uncluttered layouts fosters stimulating and focused working practices. Office task chair ON’s crisp design and its three-dimensional sitting options make it a perfect choice for this concept.
