1&1 – United Internet AG

Design concept for foyers and reception counters implemented in the office buildings, Karlsruhe

United Internet AG wanted a new interior architecture and design concept for their foyers in Karlsruhe, which can also be implemented at all other locations and to any floor plan in future.

The design should have a modern atmosphere and be highly recognizable. The furniture was to be of high-quality, functional and modular.

The first implementation of the foyer design took place in the two 1&1 office buildings – developed by Graf + Graf Architects Montabaur – behind the main train station in Karlsruhe.

A defining component of the design was a reception counter specially developed for United Internet, whose unusual design guaranteed it to be highly recognizable. The foyer design with the reception counter and lobby furniture was developed for different sizes and has meanwhile also been implemented at the following locations:

Foyer 1&1 Versatel Düsseldorf, Foyer 1&1 Versatel Essen, Foyer 1&1 Mobilfunk GmbH in Düsseldorf, Foyer United Internet in BER DSTRCT Berlin
