REWE Lounge Lanxess Arena

Relaxed frame

As the largest event hall in Cologne, the Lanxess Arena offers a colorful program ranging from sports events to carnival sessions. REWE Markt GmbH Zweigniederlassung West has rented its own lounge in the arena, which is available to employees and customers, but also to external groups. For the approx. 50 square meter room, brandherm + krumrey created an interior design that is both inviting and suitable for various occasions. The challenge in planning was to develop an ambience for a wide variety of event formats and different visitor groups. The guiding idea was an individual design that can react flexibly to changing requirements. The focus was on a lounge atmosphere as a relaxed setting for the events taking place in the arena. The idea of a frame system with modular cubes and surfaces was quickly born. Depending on the requirements and the event, changing settings can be implemented. Since REWE’s corporate design was to play a rather subordinate role here, the color and material concept was similarly modular. For the versatile use of the lounge, the furniture is robust and easy to clean. Warm wood tones, seat upholstery and other homely details nevertheless create a high quality of stay.
