MOTOR MUSIC // The interior design of one of Germany's most progressive record labels, Motor Music is organised around a conference room as the generator of ideas and business. Inspired by a motor-racing finishing flag, the design using perforated aluminium panels radiates light of various intensities changing its luminosity as you walk past. The Pool Lounge, a mosaic-tiled, multifunctional roomin the depht of the building, is avaiable for meetings, presentations and events.
A large aquarium divides the kitchen and/or DJ pulpit from the underwater world.
