Blue Night at Frankfurt Stock Exchange : Technology and Man

ATELIER BRÜCKNER designs Luminale project

15 Apr 2012

On Sunday 15 April, the Large Trading Hall at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange will be transformed into an artistic installation reflecting the theme “Technology and Man”. Working with the light artist Ingo Bracke of Studio Kybra, ATELIER BRÜCKNER developed a subtle choreography of light and sound that makes it possible to experience the leading German share-trading location in a new way. From 6:00 p.m. until midnight, visitors can take a look into the illuminated hall without having to make an appointment in advance.

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is presenting the “Blue Night” at the start of the Luminale festival of light art. As in 2008 and 2010, the biennale of light culture is an occasion to explore the scenographic potential of the hall. Redesigned in 2008 by Stuttgart architects ATELIER BRÜCKNER, the hall offers flexible illumination – depending on use. Blue as the CI colour of the stock exchange is integral to the architectural concept.

For the Luminale, the trading cabins – the workplace of over 50 specialists – are immersed in mystic blue; the DAX curve and individual prices that are displayed begin to hover in the space. They are projected onto fine gauze and permeate the space, thus overlaying a world map that encloses the room to create a permanent light installation. Its pulsating lines of light stand for technical impulses and the speed of trading processes – worldwide. Light and sound merge with the space to become an intensive experience.

The slogan “Technology and Man” refers to the reform of floor trading in Frankfurt in 2011. Since May of last year, the floor traders in Frankfurt are tied to the fully electronic Xetra trading system. In “Xetra Frankfurt specialist trading”, people and technology supplement each other perfectly. The installation for the Blue Night translates the slogan into a media-based setting. The corporate scenography of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is expressed in a narrative space.

Blue Night at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange Trading

ATELIER BRÜCKNER designs Luminale project

The Main Trading Hall at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange will be all in blue on Sunday 11 April. Under the motto “Blue Night: Trading” ATELIER BRÜCKNER, in collaboration with the light artist Ingo Bracke, has developed a light and sound installation, allowing people to experience the German stock exchange in a completely different way. Visitors can get a glimpse of the illuminated Trading Hall from 18:00 to 24:00 – without need for advance booking.

ATELIER BRÜCKNER designed and carried out the modernization of the Main Trading Hall in 2008. The lighting concept makes flexible illumination possible, depending on the use. With its memorable spatial composition, the trading hall is known above all as the workplace for over 50 lead brokers. Now on the occasion of the Luminale, the lighting culture festival, the hall is presented as a venue for events.

In the Blue Night (Blaue Nacht), in addition to the trading barriers, illuminated in blue, and the blue-framed price board, the animated world-map all around the walls, composed of LED strips is reflecting the theme of “trading”. This theme is continued with projections onto the ceiling of the hall, forming a bridges between the different continents. Light and sound merge with the room to create an intense, brand bound experience.

Blaue Nacht an der Börse Frankfurt : Handeln
ATELIER BRÜCKNER gestaltet Luminale-Projekt

Der Große Handelssaal der Börse Frankfurt zeigt sich am Sonntag, 11. April ganz in Blau. Unter dem Motto “Blaue Nacht : Handeln” entwickelte ATELIER BRÜCKNER gemeinsam mit dem Lichtkünstler Ingo Bracke eine Licht- und Klanginstallation, die den führenden deutschen Handelsplatz für Wertpapiere auf neue Weise erlebbar macht. Besucher können in der Zeit von 18 bis 24 Uhr – ohne Voranmeldung – einen Blick in den illuminierten Saal werfen.

ATELIER BRÜCKNER konzipierte und realisierte im Jahr 2008 die Neugestaltung des Großen Handelssaales. Das Lichtkonzept ermöglicht eine flexible Illumination, je nach Nutzung. Mit seinem einprägsamen Raumbild ist der Handelssaal vor allem als Arbeitsplatz von über 50 Skontroführern bekannt. Zum Lichtkunstfestival Luminale präsentiert sich der Saal nun als Veranstaltungsort.

An der Blauen Nacht tritt zu den blau leuchtenden Handelsschranken und der blau gefassten Kursanzeige eine Bespielung der saalumgreifenden, aus LED-Streifen gebildeten Weltkarte, die das Thema “Handeln” reflektiert. Projektionen auf der Decke des Saales greifen diese Bespielung auf und schlagen eine Brücke zwischen den einzelnen Kontinenten. Licht und Klang verschmelzen mit dem Raum zu einem intensiven, markengebundenen Erlebnis.
