World champion style: Occhio equips Lukas Podolski box
Timed to coincide with the national team’s championship victory Occhio also has sports news: In the RheinEnergieSTADION Cologne the new Lukas Podolski box, largely equipped by Occhio, was opened. It is one of the largest boxes in the stadium, measuring 77 m² and offering up to 24 visitors space to celebrate and cheer the team on.
What is special about it: It communicates highly personal insight into the national player’s career. "I feel very much at home in the RheinEnergieSTADION. A box, which bears my name, should not look like a museum, but rather like my living room", says Podolski. Poldi himself chose the numerous mementos and photos and made them available.
To give their spatial concept a particularly sophisticated touch the agency PBL Milk GmbH decided to use the Occhio lighting system. A combination of Più alto surface-mounted spotlights, Sento verticale wall luminaires and io 3d sospeso suspended luminaires above table and sideboard harmonizes perfectly with the sporty interior.
Outside of FC home match days Poldi’s living room can be hired as an event location for meetings, conferences and parties. "Although Lukas no longer plays here he is still a son of the city and of the FC. Many fans and stadium visitors still seek close contact with him. To date there was no appropriate offer", says the sports facility manager Hans Rütten, this is now provided. And the demand is already sensational.
