InterContinental, Düsseldorf

Situated on the prestigious Königsallee – the „Kö“ – the InterContinental Düsseldorf offers five- star-superior-standard. André Behncke- whose signature work includes the interior of renowned addresses such as the InterContinental Resort Berchtesgaden and the Schlosshotel Elmau – has referred to the generous boulevard lined with sycamores both thematically and in colour. Thus André Behncke courts the colour red in the restaurant.

The two oval, wine-red ceiling lamps by Baulmann support the staged atmosphere significantly. The highlight of the lavish lobby is the four metre high lamp, which André Behncke designed specifically for the hotel and Baulmann was able to realise. In the form of an oversized mobile this light sculpture with eight luminaires in the hotel lobby is an impressive eye-catcher, defining the 15 metre high lobby from the bottom up, whilst providing perfect lighting at the same time. This light creation was inspired by the mobiles of the US-American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976), who is famous for being the primary representative of mobiles.
