Das frankfurter Zimmer

The Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt/Main has more than 60.000 objects in its storage but, unfortunately, no "Frankfurter Küche". Therefore, for the presentation of Design objects from 1925 till 1985 conceived or produced in Frankfurt I proposed, with a bit of irony, to create a "Frankfurter Zimmer". An enclosed space (with a roof) displaying the objects as if they were used (the shelving system from Dieter Rams becomes a vitrine including books from the Suhrkamp Verlag, clocks from the firma Braun and lamps designed by Christian Dell in the 1920s).

To emphasize the modernist idea that federates both the conception and the construction of the exhibition, the room is tilted in the space from Richard Meier of exactly 30°, and uses graphite, sand, light grey and red reminding of the colorful experiments from the Bauhaus or Bruno Taut.
