Have you noticed the extravagant lights in our One Lounge? We’re proud that our lounge has been perfectly illuminated by none other than internationally renowned designer Ingo Maurer. Classics like Johnny B. Good, XXL Dome and Zettel’z illuminate all areas of our lounge, creating an atmosphere of relaxed wellbeing. The design for the One Lounge was inspired by our namesake, the Deutsches Museum, and its focus on natural history and technology. As the symbol of ideas and the spirit of invention, countless lightbulb holograms light up at different intervals, forming Maurer’s impressive installation behind our reception. Playing with perception, coupled with a healthy dose of humor is what makes Ingo Maurer’s work stand out.
Added to this is his unmistakeable flair for the perfect staging of light. The 360 degree rotatable ‘Looksoflat’ is a fine example of his work with light. Only when you look closer, do you see that the light is actually only two centimeters wide, but creates a perfect work light on the desk. In our space-age bar, which plays homage to the 1960s drive to explore space, the glossy black ceiling reflects Ingo Maurer’s especially created ‘XXL Dome’ in black and gold, letting you look up towards this faux moon. And have you discovered the special little surprise while waiting for the lift. A special piece that’s like a cheeky ‘wink’ to Ingo Maurer’s humorous view of life. Take a closer look at the Oskar von Miller portrait. It hides a secret that might just put a smile on your face.
