Der Spiegel is a German news magazine that presents daily news. Recently, this magazine moved into its publishing house in Hamburg’s HafenCity development. Der Spiegel wants to provide more convenience for its employees, including a new spacious canteen. Therefore, the company asked Ippolito Fleitz Group to make a new employee canteen that shows the identity of Der Spiegel.

At first, Ippolito Fleitz Group captured the Der Spiegel philosophy: journalistic philosophy as much as its culture of dialogue. Then, based on that philosophy, the architecture firm created a mirror-based design. The design is really fantastic!

The Ippolito Fleitz Group changed the 520 square meter social eating space into a distinguishing space. The ceiling of this space is formed of 4,230 micro-perforated aluminum circles. Imagine how amazing it is! The space also completed with three large groups of tables. Other amazing side of this space is lighting.

The Ippolito Fleitz Group added large-scale light dishes that use intense color. There are also dimmable lamps above the tables. This lighting combination beautifully divides the space into zones and also generates a charming atmosphere in the space. At last, this canteen named Spiegelkantine. What an interesting place for having lunch!
