National Stadium, Warsaw, Poland

An innovative membrane roof construction on free-standing steel stilts and the façade made of mesh panels are the hallmarks of Warsaw’s National Stadium. On the banks of the Vistula, directly opposite the town centre, the arena is lit up at night in the national colours, red and white. Built on the occasion of the European Football Championship 2012, the modern sports arena has become a new symbol of the national identity of Poland. With its powerful proportions, Nelson sofas shape the space in the presidential lounge. An invitation to enjoy a world of comfortable and relaxed seating.
