PERMANENT EXHIBITION ADENAUERHAUS, Bad Honnef

Exhibition designer: Atelier Brückner GmbH


On occasion of the 50th anniversary of Konrad Adenauer’s death, the permanent exhibition of the museum, which has made the person and the works of Adenauer accessible to the public since 1975, was completely redesigned by Atelier Brückner. A complex scenography of exhibition walls and furniture, show cases and media stations has been implemented in the daylight-flooded museum structure.

By specifically illuminating just the exhibition’s surfaces, the scenographic fixtures naturally stand out with the exhibits illuminated in a differentiated way while purposefully playing with the shadows of the polygonal fixtures. In many glass cabinets, a system of miniature luminaires has been integrated so that special exhibits are highlighted precisely.

The emphasis through artificial light in the daylight flooded rooms is adjusted accurately to make sure they appear different according to the time of day, yet remain stringently illuminated at all times.

The lighting concept is implemented solely with LEDs and serves a contemporary and condensed scenography with differentiated yet few elements, so that the reopened museum can illuminate Konrad Adenauer's life and work for the next generations.

The new permanent exhibition was opened on the 50th anniversary of Konrad Adenauer's death in the presence of Cardinal Woelki and Head of the Office of the Federal Chancellery Peter Altmaier.
