The Former American Consulate General, Cecilienallee, Duesseldorf
24 May. 2012
THE GALLERY DÜSSELDORF TAKES CENTER STAGEThe Igedo Company, which is planning this summer's upcoming debut of The Gallery Düsseldorf, has just announced that the event will take place at the former American consulate general at Cecilienallee rather than at Areal Böhler as originally planned.
Organizers were recently informed about the new option thanks to Robert Kellershohn, CEO of the real estate service proving company Savills. The major draw is the unique location's direct proximity to various showrooms at Kaiserswerther Strasse and Cecilienallee as well as extended opening hours and a longer running term. The first event is scheduled for July 28-31, one day longer as initially planned.
“The Gallery Düsseldorf will now take center stage in Duesseldorf’s fashion business world. It’s an ideal drop-in place with a nice atmosphere for buyers making their orders,“ said Philipp Kronen, CEO of Igedo Company. “We will turn the former American consulate general into a fashion embassy - I am very optimistic.“ Elke Sautter, project leader at The Gallery Düsseldorf, added, “The location offers a stable order platform for avant-garde, design and accessories exhibitors and gives trade visitors an ideal connection between the showrooms and the special collections at The Gallery Düsseldorf.“
The historic, four-story building was constructed in 1953 with a new attachment built in the 1990's by ingenhoven architects. It welcomes The Gallery Düsseldorf’s visitors with its ancient tree population in the district of Golzheim, located directly at the Rhine River park. Christoph Ingenhoven of ingenhoven architects commented, “It is a positive development for the building. We are very pleased that, with Igedo Company, we have found both an attractive and suitable occupant for the well-known former American consulate general.”
