THE PURITY OF SHAPE

The brand Hugo Boss represents elegance, high-quality fashion for independent, free-spirited and modern people.

A trendsetting style with clear and attractive forms and shapes. Hugo Boss is a symbol for innovation, creativity and fascination. Being one of the leading fashion groups this enterprise offers an attractive life-style through its brands with a high potential of identification. The new administration building of Hugo Boss expresses this pretension perfectly. The vertical lines of the subtle glass and aluminium construction are accentuating the two cubes of the complex, whereas the collateral sides are stressed by the horizontal lines of the ALUCOBOND® façade in silver metallic, integrated in harmony into the transparent ease of the front view. The ALUCOBOND® panels were cut to size on site and could have been handled without trouble despite their remarkable length of 5 310 mm. The time of installation was extremely short: 1 000 m² ofALUCOBOND® could be mounted within 40 days only due to the profitable SZ20 system. With the use ofALUCOBOND® panels on the façade a durable and timeless system was applied, perfectly corresponding to the stylish image of this fashion group. The high-quality coating provides an extreme resistance against weathering, strong insolation and pollution.
