A former store in Munich’s Presying Palais serves as the site of the experimental series entitled 4th Wall, a reference to the imaginary barrier between actors and their audience.

Merging light and materiality, Plusminus features a revolutionary fabric belt design that accommodates multiple luminaires and conducts electricity, enabling light to flow through space.

The collection provides a powerful toolkit for creating personalised effects, placing light precisely where needed and creating visual hierarchies in an interior.

The event featured four different Plusminus compositions installed throughout the raw space. From taut floor-to-ceiling arrangements to relaxed silhouettes that span a room, they reveal the collection’s remarkable versatility.

As the attendant explored the installations and mingled over cocktails and appetizers, Diez spoke about Plusminus and its whole collaborative process. He was followed by Vibia CEO Pere Llonch, Robert Thiemann, editor-in-chief of Frame Magazine, and, finally Philipp Nitsche, Managing Director of Cocon Real Estate.
