Memphis revival for the offices of Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg

Wallpaper, colour accents and custom-made furniture: for the German museum, interdisciplinary studio Besau-Marguerre designs a lively and eclectic workspace.

Multidisciplinary studio Besau-Marguerre designed the workspaces of Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, Germany, one of the most important art and design museums in Europe. The aim of the project was to create pleasant rooms and meeting areas, with good acoustics and a clever distribution of spaces. 

The German studio, which works in the fields of product, visual communication, styling and interior design, created for the museum vibrant spaces defined by graphic patterns and colour accents.

An eclectic use of different design elements characterises the project: the discovery of large panels decorated in the style of the Memphis Group – kept in the museum after an exhibition dedicated precisely to the Italian collective – led to the creation of a table for meeting room and a small round table for the office. Striped wallpaper and a custom-made carpet, designed by the studio and produced by ReuberHenning, accompany these complements. 

Neutral tones, such as those of the grey curtains and wooden chairs, are combined with all these elements, creating a slight contrast to avoid a chaotic workplace. The space is completed by the electric blue, multifunctional office system designed by Besau-Marguerre for Sigel: a small structure made up of various components which guarantees flexibility in the working environment and responds to different needs.
