Art object "Overview & foresight" successfully installed at Salamander headquarters in Türkheim
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Salamander Group, the company commissioned a work of art in the form of a sculpture in 2017. In order to promote the artists of the home region, an artist competition was announced. Sculptors and artists from the Lower Allgäu, Upper Allgäu and Eastern Allgäu were invited to submit their design proposals.
Türkheim, 21.09.2020 Last week the art object was set up to honour the 100-year history of the company. The artist Stefan Beuter won the competition with the artwork "Bewegte Sicht".
The three-part glass work of art, which was specially designed for Salamander, forms a unit and plays with the perspectives of the three panes. The words "overview" and "foresight" play with the 100-year-old past as well as with the future. Light is reflected in the panes, which are printed with ceramic screen printing. Thus, the green of the "overview pane" shines in superimposition with the blue-grey "overview pane" in Salamander green.
Salamander looks back on a long company history. As a medium-sized, family-run business, its history has been shaped to a large extent by the commitment of its employees. Together with its international locations, Salamander will continue to write this history successfully in the future, so that "overview" and "foresight" are part of the future strategy. The company is growing together and is proud to successfully distribute its sustainable, design-oriented and innovative products throughout the world.
