“Anamorphic Mirror“ opens up the conference and brand area in the Deutsche Banks headquarters in Frankfurt. The installation is located at the end of a staircase. Consisting of a faceted mirror and blue light projected onto the opposite wall, it reflects the Deutsche Bank’s logo when viewed from the sweet spot. Standing at the bottom of the stairs visitors initially see seemingly random blue reflections on the mirror’s individual surfaces.

As they get closer, the reflections begin to take shape until they resolve into the banks blue logo upon the visitors reaching the stair head.
