»Join the Leading Network in Europe.« For the first time, KMS BLACKSPACE designed a booth for Deutsche Telekom for the Mobile World Congress (MWC), held in Barcelona from March 2–5, 2015. The Munich-based branding specialists followed Telekom’s overarching guiding principle, »Join the Leading Network in Europe.«, to develop the look and feel of the installation, and position the company as a reliable partner and leading telecommunications provider in Europe.
Connect. Trust. Personalize. Three important attributes that describe Telekom’s products also served as attractive principles for the design of this space. KMS BLACKSPACE adapted this characteristic product DNA in the form of over 1,400 cubes to build a flowing structure for the entire MWC booth, which included a »Brand Horizon«, »Brand Wall« and »Product Bar«. These areas combined with a number of individual elements to create a dynamic, impressive network for visitors to explore. The designers consciously integrated the character of the Telekom brand and aspects of communication into the booth appear- ance and structure. This intimate space invited partners, customers and employees alike to share their ideas.
Winning with partners. Guests experienced the Deutsche Telekom tagline, »Life is for sharing.«, first hand at the booth thanks to the open-plan concept and the set of bleachers running along the entire edge of the space, which provided room for over 100 guests. A stage provided a platform for events and press conferences, encouraging an open, transparent dialogue – integrated in the Deutsche Telekom network.
