    Restaurant at The Spiegel new HQ

DESCRIPTION

In October 2011 the SPIEGEL Group, whose stable includes Germany’s most important news magazine Der SPIEGEL, moved into its new publishing house in Hamburg’s HafenCity development. This impressive structure on the Eriscusspitze, lapped by the waters of the River Elbe, was designed by Danish architect Henning Larsen. Ippolito Fleitz Group was commissioned to create a new employees’ canteen for the building. The legacy building’s famous canteen was designed in 1969 by Verner Panton and has since been placed under heritage protection. This inheritance represented a particular challenge.

Alcantara Stone had manufactured and supplied the whole set of tables for this canteen sited in the Spiegel building. Collaborating with the famous architect studio Ippolito Fleitz Group and the contractor Riedl, we produce these items, which have an interesting and singular pattern, made with our exclusive finish Lasser Design.

Henning Larsen Architects has chosen a two-part composition to create hierarchy and openness on the site and has integrated the complex urban spaces that meet at Ericusspitze in their design.

The Ericus building will be essential for the completion of the large park space. Spiegel will become the gateway to Hafencity, seen from the main station and Brooktorkai.
