Futurium in Berlin
Underfloor systems from OBO Bettermann in the House of the Future in Berlin
Like a cloud between the turbulent dealings of the big city, the facade reflects the sky and the building is embedded in the heart of the government district in Berlin. The "House of the Future" is now located between the Charité Hospital and the Office of the Federal Chancellor, in the centre of the government district. Underfloor systems from OBO Bettermann were installed, ensuring a flexible power supply.
The three-storey Futurium will be open to young and old from the spring of 2019, presenting the world of tomorrow. Everything is interconnected ‒ people, technology and nature ‒ that is the message that the 14,000 m² of the building wishes to impart. It is intended to allow people to experience life in the future, as well as research and innovation. During the overall planning, flexibility was of key importance. This is because changing exhibitions require flexible power supplies, in this case via the floor. This meant that the decision for OBO's underfloor systems was a clear one. For the architects, Christoph Richter and Jan Musikowski, it was not only the reliable functionality of the OBO Bettermann solutions that were the convincing factor, but also the perfect harmony with the different terrazzo floors.
