Imposing Medial Spectacle

5 years Indemann Observation Tower: The Indemann was designed by the Maastricht architecture firm Maurer United Architects as a symbol of the exemplary structuralpolitical evolution of a former mining region. This 36 meter high, accessible steel sculpture, built on a brown coal dump near Inden, resembles a primitive robot.

The Indemann gets its unique radiance from Illumesh®, a semitransparent skin made of stainless steel mesh with interwoven LED profiles. During the day, the metallic surface shimmers and reflects light, then at night, a spectacular computercontrolled light show comes to life. In Germany the system has been used only once: on the Indemann.
