Membrane. A thin sheet or film as the dictionary describes it. Yet translated into more sizeable dimensions, with a larger area and new forms, it becomes a unique form of architecture – transforming fragility and lightness into a monumental statement. We adopted this metaphor to create a new profile for the family-run company Koch Membranen GmbH, located on Chiemsee Lake. The status thus created extends far beyond the world of membranes and establishes Koch as a design-oriented manufacturer and centre of technological consulting and expertise.
