Haus der Kunst

A stage of light

Munich's Haus der Kunst is well-known for its exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. "Sitzung", the current artwork by Martino Gamper, transforms the museum's central hall into a lively, changing space. The exhibition is staged by Sento sospeso pendant luminaires, which create an impressive performance and harmoniously combine art and light.

The art of sitting

The interactive exhibition "Sitzung" presents 100 chairs by designer Martino Gamper. Visitors can place the chairs in the central hall of the Haus der Kunst as they wish to gather, rest and play. A square of 108 Sento sospeso in matt gold provides a stage of light for the installation. The height-adjustable pendant luminaires were made in special lengths especially for this exhibition and can be flexibly adjusted between five and three and a half meters in length.
