Issue 6.2023


Dear Readers,

We have been waiting for this summer for a long time: travelling carefree again at last, enjoying restaurants and bars to the fullest, visiting trade fairs… Salone del Mobile was a good start: strolling through the exhibition halls in Rho (picture above) with my colleagues Kira Kawohl and Stephan Faulhaber and enjoying the first rays of sunshine in the Fuori Salone. We gathered impressions and pictures and met many acquaintances – our extensive follow-up report starts on page 28. The next trip to Italy is already scheduled as we go to press: We will attend the press preview days of the 18th Architecture Biennale in Venice and report in AIT 7/8.2023. Strikes of airline and railway staff have not made travelling any easier in the last few weeks and have unintentionally reminded us to consciously use more climate-neutral means of transport. Well, that was obvious when it came to the fleeting visits to our selected projects on the topic of current issue “Bar Hotel Restaurant” in Hamburg (p. 88), Stuttgart (right and from p. 96), Berlin (p. 104) and Wiesbaden (p. 120). For the remaining venues in Osaka, Shanghai, Valencia, Innichen, Thessaloniki, Bolzano, Lyon and Malaga, we relied on the power of the images and think the design concepts are inspiring for the next catering project. Cruise ship holidays were more than controversial even before the corona pandemic, meanwhile many port cities have had time to recover from it and do not wish to return to the previous state. What appropriate actions does the industry take? In the article “Alles im Fluss” (from p. 126), Anne Wolff and Nicola Voss from JOI-Design describe how sustainable travelling on a river cruise ship can work. Our product recommendations (from p. 68), especially for outdoor use (from p. 74), support you in furnishing and equipping catering venues. The hotel design for a vineyard in Lisbon (from p. 46), a bachelor’s thesis by Celine Kohlhaas at the Münster School of Architecture, proves that this topic is also an attractive task for students. Have you ever wondered what’s on the minds of guests at a café while waiting for their Black Forest gateau? Dominik Reding has a hunch (p. 56)! We wish you a wonderful summer (holiday)!

Best wishes
