The interior design of the Siemens headquarters reflects the Siemens DNA, builds on the clarity of structure and design of the architecture and achieves a balance between traditional and modern, between representation and timeless functionality. The concept of the interior design focuses on handcrafted and technical quality as well as durability and authenticity of material and design – in an understated elegance that accords with the company’s stance.
The interior design of the listed palace deals with the work of Leo von Klenze and a contemporary creative mediation between past and present. Klenze’s stylistic devices are transformed in shape, colour and material language into the present, as a reminiscence of the original usage of the palace as a dwelling. This can be seen, for example, in the ornaments and patterns and the wallcoverings that structure the room’s proportions, just as a floor frieze or classical wall lights in a modern implementation.
