The Berlin Brandenburg Airport is one of the largest and most complex transport infrastructure projects in Germany. The building was designed by the renowned architects gmp and JSK International. Moniteurs was already actively involved in the project at the competition phase for the communications design, and by degrees was commissioned to design the orientation system for the airport including its surroundings. A key design feature is the colour red, unusual for airports. This gives clear signals for orientation, and also harmonises with the architecture, with its warm tones of wood and natural stone. At the same time, it is modelled on the appearance of its home states of Berlin and Brandenburg. In many places, the signs are directly embedded into the architectural panels – some flow around the corner, and this concept is woven into the product design of the signs outside the building.
