Elektropolis. Factory site in Oberschöneweide, Berlin.

Elektropolis, the three-phase power plant built by Paul Tropp on the Spree River in 1895, quickly attracted international attention as a monumental industrial building. Visitors flocked from near and far to marvel at the future. Fritz Lang drew inspiration for his 1927 cinematic masterpiece, Metropolis. Where the huge turbines generated three-phase current, the sturdy furniture of NOODLES NOODLES & NOODLES CORP. was now photographed in the most appropriate way.




Industrial design furniture. Handmade from steel. For over 30 years NOODLES NOOD- LES & NOODLES CORP. has been producing. Furniture for the living and working area. The design is inspired by the typical industrial look of the early 20th century. Their infamous design classic “the Jailhousefuck”, a steel bed in prison grid design, has already gone down in design history as a furniture icon. The Authentic Furniture program includes wardrobes, clothes racks, sideboards, shelves, stools/benches/tables and preserves the legacy of a time when products of high quality and durability were taken for granted.



Christian Klant’s photography combines historical authenticity and creativity, just as the furniture of NOODLES NOODLES & NOODLES CORP. and the MaHalla do as a location: In the age of the ubiquity of digital images, Klant reaches back into the early history of photography. He uses the collodion wet technique, coating metal plates with light-sensitive material directly before taking the picture. The exposure takes place in self-constructed large-format cameras, and the unique images are developed directly on site. The collodion wet technique cannot be surpassed in its truthfulness of rendering, and in Christian Klant’s paintings the original quality of NOODLES NOODLES & NOODLES furniture adds up to find its counterpart in the massive architecture of the Turbine Hall.
