UN Campus Bonn

Bonn, Germany, 2013

Linear design language

first class seats at the Climate Change Secretariat of the UN in Bonn. Furniture by Brunner in the former parliament buildings.

This is furniture that can be used in a variety of ways; it combines function and design, is in harmony with the architecture and maintains the timeless, authentic character of the building on the inside.

To accommodate the Climate Change Secretariat of the United Nations UNFCCC in Bonn, the Federal Agency for Real Estate had the entire ensemble of the Bundeshaus building reconstructed and sustainably modernised in line with the Climate Secretariat’s requests. The design developed by Düsseldorf architects RKW Architektur + Städtebau provides for the most extensive preservation of listed items and future-oriented usage. From the individual parts of the building a structural unit was created, whose communicative central point is a glass-covered atrium. The simplicity of the white building complex is also reflected in the new interior design.

The spirit of democracy, which was the inspiration for constructing the Bundeshaus building, is still palpable today with rooms that are presented with clarity and bathed in light. The furniture also has the same linear approach as the architecture. In the conference and meeting rooms flexibility and comfort were called for. For these specific requirements the stylish first class stacking chair was chosen. Invisible frame linking ensures unobtrusive cohesion and ease of arrangement in rows. first class is combined with the sturdy trust folding table. It has won over architects with its folding feature that is not obvious to the eye. Thanks to its four-legged frame trust is a table that is not easy to knock over. In the cafeteria UN staff members enjoy their time off on the monobloc twin plastic chair. Robust and low maintenance this chair makes an impact with its casual design. The round centre-column table of the series 3000 has room for food and beverages. With its clean design language the delicate fina bar barstool adds the finishing touch to the cafeteria.
