Information

The artists developed a concept for the colour scheme with the title "…fortsetzend…" ("…continued…") that provides orientation, among other things. Each floor, from the corridor to the rooms, was allotted a palette of colours. These colours were selected in discussion with the stations' staff and realised in accordance with their preferences.

…continuing…
…carrying… on…
…progressing, extending …
…unshakable…
…unimpressed…
…doggedly holding on…
…continuing relentlessly on the same path…
bandaged… bind… bound
…strips, alternating…
…touching on something…
…briefly pausing…
…reflecting…
…continue… endless…

We developed a concept for the colour scheme in the long corridors, which are confusingly similar on each floor. Each floor is allotted a colour scheme that makes it recognisable, especially by clients. These were realised in dialogue with the individual stations and according to colour preferences expressed. Accordingly the colourful stripes, which are shaded white upwards, do not only serve to brighten up the dingy corridors but also to aid orientation. The colour scheme continues in shading into each of the rooms. The use of magnetic paint on wall permits the mounting of personal images or similar with magnets.
