Quiet Room: planned back in the 1950s under the aegis of Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer, piece-by-piece modernisation of the UN headquarters has now got underway. The particular challenge: retaining the architectural and aesthetic spirit of the buildings and their interior. Meuser Architekten submitted an interior design for the Security Council’s Quiet Room that picks up the abstract form of the original design. Representatives of the member states hold their informal discussions in a peaceful lounge atmosphere on furniture made in Herrenberg.
