Studio Arne Quinze has completed the interior of die Kunstbar in Cologne, Germany. The Kunstbar is located at the base of the Dome Cathedral. The materials they used for the interior of the bar is wood of packing crates, used to chip artwork. It’s furniture is made by Quinze and Milan with variations of Studio Arne Quinze’s own chair design, Room 26 Seat.
Studio Arne Quinze transposed the concept and vision for the interior design of die kunstbar under the steps of the Dome in Cologne, Germany. The cathedral shews up the entire scenery, looking down over the entire city. A Dome referring to the catholic history of Köln, a Dome watching over the mass as the domineering replacer of God on earth.
Wooden boxes used to transport art are covering the bar. What’s behind itstays unrevealed. A metaphor for the church not revealing what happens in the church as its trying to keep hold of its controlling role in society. Those boxes used to wrap up art, church wraps up the freedom of the mind.
Quinze & Milan furnished the interior of the 174 sqm large ‘kunstbar’ with various adaptations of its Room 26 Seat, designed by Studio Arne Quinze.
Arne Quinze is the first artist to exhibit his work in the art hotspot located in the heart of the city, under the steps of the Dome. He presents ‘EYE.C.U’, a unique and uncanny video-installation replacing the religious all-seeying-eye with a contemporary digital one.
