As If The Future Has Already Started

01

If you want to assess the future of alternative drive systems, you have to look at Hyundai. The South Korean manufacturer already offers all major technologies in marketable form. In 2020, it delivered the world’s first serially produced fuel cell trucks to customers in Switzerland. And in Coventry/UK, the company is testing individual air mobility with emissions-free vertical take-off solutions. Andreas-Christoph Hofmann fills us in on plans for the years ahead.

Treat Yourself To Something Special

Three great cities and three legendary stores: Berlin’s “KaDeWe”, Hamburg’s “Alsterhaus” and Munich’s “Oberpollinger” attract 20 million visitors a year. Since 2015, these KaDeWe Group stores have been fully renovated, also with support from the shop-fitting experts at Vizona. Splitting the flagship store in Berlin into four sections based on plans by Pritzker prize-winner Rem Kolhaas (OMA) has created a particular stir. Norman Plattner is delighted by this transformation and all the processes involved.
