Rainer M. Kresing and Kilian Kresing designed a new "jewelery box" for the tradition house Andreas and son Benjamin Freisfeld at the river Alster in Hamburg. The Westfalian goldsmith had previously taken over the oldest jeweler business in Germany, the Brahmfeld & Gutruf brand, and moved into a Hanseatic merchant's house with a listed facade on the Neuer Wall.
In the middle of other well-known jeweler addresses, such as Cartier and Bulgari, it was necessary to emphasize the individuality and to offer the unified "shop window appearance" something unexpected, new and positive.
Using 48.000 LEDs, the walls and ceiling form a light structure, grounded through the wooden floor. The space is given by a reduced, simple furniture and the mirror surfaces on the end wall. The showcases in polished teak wood with polished metal fittings - suspended in the material covering - are floating and light, almost playful.
Overall, an unusual, versatile, light structure, which uses light as a determining building material.
