signage system

Andreas Uebele

where to, and where next? visitors to the new stuttgart region chamber of commerce and industry building are welcomed and guided to their destination by cheerful bands of colour. even if their route leads up a hidden staircase, visitors can tell at once where they are heading: from the two-storey foyer they can already see the colourful signs on the floor above. clear information is presented on multi-coloured wallpaper – the layered stripes blending in naturally with the architecture.
