The press room, situated in a prominent position above the main entrance, is essential to the communications work of the ECB. Once a month, ECB president Mario Draghi stands in front of the cameras of the world's media assembled here to announce the awaited plans for the European currency.
The interior design and the backdrop to the press room were created by unit-design. The priority when the speaker's platform was being developed was a design appropriate for the media, with a friendly, open overall look and clear recognition of the location in close-ups. The finely tuned lighting design and the spacious, subtly colored background ensure a successful performance.
