A homage to Otto Lindner: Otto’s Skybar in the Lindner Congress Hotel in Düsseldorf reflects the unique manner and style of the architect and founder of Lindner Hotels AG who died in 2020 at the age of 90. In the early Seventies, the architect planned the building in which for many years he had his office on the 19th floor – in the precise location of the Skybar that now invites visitors to linger. For this, durlum supplied a very special ceiling solution indeed.

Longing, cosmopolitanism, curiosity and a sense of arrival – the central element of the bar is the theme of flying, Otto Lindner’s great passion. With its gentle wave shape, inspired by the wingbeat of a bird, this vaulted ceiling imbues the interior with a graceful sense of lightness. Powder-coated in a refined shade of gold, this ceiling blends harmoniously with the rest of the interior design. Equipped with cooling meanders and backed with acoustic fleece, these perforated metal panels provide silent, draught-free and hygienic air conditioning for the bar.

In the outside area, guests can enjoy a view across the Düsseldorf skyline, the river Rhine and the aircraft as they land and take off.
