Department Store, KaDeWe

Lasa Marmo refines the delicatessen floor in Germany's most famous department store

The Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe) [Department Store of the West] is the best-known department store in Germany and, with a sales area of 60,000 m², one of the largest in Europe. Since the end of the 1920s, the delicatessen department on the sixth floor has been one of the most important attractions of the Berlin luxury department store. After renovation work in 1978, the KaDeWe now has the second largest food department of any department store in the world. In 2018, the owner, the Thai Central Group, decided to carry out a large-scale renovation of the "Food hall", as the gourmet restaurant is officially and internationally called, which is laid out on 7,500 m² of floor space. As per the planning of the Berlin design studio Karhard, Lasa Marmo supplied a solid counter made of LASA BIANCO NUVOLATO® for the redesign of the champagne bar in the same year. The product line LASA !NDIVIDUAL® was delivered for use with the newly designed cheese department counter’s shopping bag shelves.
