Italian manufacturer Matteograssi furnishes Red Bull’s innovative Hangar-7 at Salzburg Airport.
Hangar-7 is a unique multifunctional building almost 100 meters long, 67 meters wide and 14.5 meters high at the highest point. The building houses the historical Flying Bulls aircraft fleet and a collection of Formula 1 race cars and is owned by the founder of Red Bull, Dietrich Mateschitz.
It is a hugely impressive space, of innovative design, where aviation history, technology, entertainment, art and cooking are woven together to create a unique experience. From the outside, Hangar-7 is reminiscent of a glass aircraft wing. Inside, it stretches across the Flying Bulls fleet like the vault of heaven.
To decorate such a prestigious location, Red Bull chose the specialist Italian furniture company Matteograssi. The modern, attractive design of its products was immediately appreciated by Red Bulls founder, Dietrich Mateschitz, who was convinced that the quality of the Brianza company’s creations could enhance the interiors of its futuristic Hangar.
Initally, Mateschitz wanted to furnish only his own office, but then requested that Matteograssi look into providing furniture for the collective areas. Matteograssi supplied the Hangar with their Openside collection, designed by Franco Poli, to create the perfect environment for the ground floor where people are welcomed when visiting the museum. The clean lines of the sofas are enhanced by soft leather covers and have been produced in Bianco Neve and Rosso Bolero.
A variety of other products were also placed in the waiting areas and in the operation spaces such as the manufacturers UL400 benches, designed by Ulrich, Blox, Bristol and Berlin sofas, Mizar and Carol swivel armchairs and Metron tables. A total of 262 seats.
All the furniture was produced in a fine coach hide and soft leather with Matteograssi’s comfortable lines that adapt particularly well to the social areas.
