On May 25th, 2019, the Goldkammer Frankfurt opened its doors after four years of design, planning and construction as one of the most modern museums in Europe. In a succession of spectacular, underground tunnels and vaults covering 480m2, the Berlin exhibition designers from merz merz have created an suitable interior design for the various themes of the 500 gold exhibits.

Due to the special structural requirements, the architectural office merz merz created a number of small exhibition spaces, which, through their refined lighting, appear more spacious than they actually are.

Licht Kunst Licht underlines the dramatic composition of the Goldkammer’s innovative exhibition concept by emphasizing the valuable exhibits with integrated lighting elements in an unobtrusive, yet emphatic manner. The above ground spaces of the two-storey building, for which the lighting designers have developed a custom-designed pendant light, invite guests to linger in the “Aureus Café”, a day bar and restaurant.
