Project name: Art’otel

Project type: Leisure

Location: Cologne, Germany

Architect: Nalbach + Nalbach


The concept behind Art’otel combines “exceptional architecture and art-inspired interiors” to offer their guest a unique hotel experience. Needless to say, that all interior materials are put under strict and demanding design requirements.


From the functional side, the task for the suspended ceilings in the conference and common areas was to conceal the necessary installations and provide high quality room acoustics. From the aesthetic point of view, the ceiling design had to be discreet and in line with the overall design concept.


The optimal solution to the functional and aesthetic demands was found in Contur Globe. With its concealed grid and round perforations, Contur Globe creates a subtle and soft expression that blends in with the rest of the interior. In addition to superb room acoustics, Contur Globe also ensures a high level of light reflection.
