LEONARDO GLASS CUBE
The ‘glass cube’ communicates the world and personality of the brand and turns vision into reality.
The numerously awarded design unites the LEONARDO brand values ‘inspiration’, ‘emotion’ and ‘quality’ in an architectonic way.
An interdisciplinary design team,the team of architects ‘3deluxe’ designed the futuristic building for LEONARDO which consists (at first sight) of two opposing elements: a strict geometric cube and a free form made of curved, white walls, set in this cover. With the combination of architecture, interior and graphical design as well as landscaping to an integrated design concept, ‘3deluxe’ built a complex unit with futuristic charm. The design team ‘3deluxe’ formed up in Wiesbaden (Germany) in 1992, comprising of communication designers Andreas and Stephan Lauhoff, interior designer Nikolaus Schweiger and designer Dieter Brell. http://www.3deluxe.de
