Grand Hyatt Berlin, with its contemporary art and modern architecture, is the art hotel in Berlin. Since opening in 1998 the art collection has continuously expanded.
International art pieces, individual photographs, pictures and objects by John Armleder, Monika Baer, Sylvie Fleury, Corsin Fontana, Günther Förg, Eberhard Havekost, Mat Hennek, Imi Knoebel, Jaehyo Lee, Gerold Miller, Susanne Paesler, Gert Rappenecker, Julio Rondo, Dieter Roth, Jo Schöpfer, Otto Zitko and others are not mere decoration, but an integral part of the hotel’s interior design concept. The pictures, sculptures and other objects are located in the hotel lobby, in the suites and in the conference rooms
The Korean artist Jaehyo Lee created more than a dozen sculptures for the guest hallways and the event floor of Grand Hyatt Berlin at Potsdamer Platz
. The artist, born in 1965, works with strong reference to nature, converting natural materials into expressive, organic forms. Steel and wood remain discernible and their surface and textures become even more obvious through the working process.
In the guestrooms
you find seven different photographs from the Bauhaus Archive Berlin. Among the 60 different images are shots by such famous Bauhaus artists as Moholy-Nagy, Gropius, Marianne Brandt and Imi Knoebel. The pictures from Imi Knoebel, with their monochrome colour fields, express the energy, amenity and beauty of Hollywood actress Grace Kelly. Art prints in the corridors and the business suites are by Matisse, Picasso, Klee, Kandinsky, Kippenberger, Förg, Polke and Rainer, to mention just a few. They link classic modern art to the original contemporary art pieces in the suites and public areas.
The hallways are equipped with black-and-white images of Berlin from the Dutch photographer Erik-Jan Ouwerkerk. Lamps with opalika-panes, on which the photographs are fixed with a screen-printing technique, spread comfortable, warm light on the corridors. While walking through the hallways, Berlin comes together like a mosaic of 84 different pieces.
Mat Hennek has made the changing of wood throughout the seasons his topic. In the Tizian Lounge
his pictures offer a comfortable, calming atmosphere.
