The Lido Malkasten is this year’s After-show meeting point for the ART DÜSSELDORF. On July 4 the Malkasten am Hofgarten, which can look back on a rich tradition, opened its restaurant and the bar Lido im Malkasten. In close collaboration with the artist Rosemarie Trockel, they created an open-plan space that has made an interesting place into something unique.
Rosemarie Trockel designed a carpet composition specifically for the Lido im Malkasten: Based on her world-famous knit paintings, it measures an impressive 400m². The restaurant and bar offer modern interpretations of international cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere: The underlying principle is mixing and sharing. The team surrounding chef Florian Ohlmann has made it their goal to inspire guests to engage in experimentation and trying things out and to make the Malkasten the meeting point for communications and the arts in Düsseldorf.
