Description by Matteograssi

This extraordinary and unusual  hangar has always been considered a private museum, owned by Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of well-known Red Bull energetic drink that gives you wings !!!

This exciting hangar is the headquarter of the Flying Bulls, the air members of this famous brand, located in Salzburg Austria.

The team, that consists of flight professionals, was born on 1980.

Starting from that moment a series of important airplanes and new members joined the group. The increase of the fleet has created a problem of living space. The old hangar

was not large enough, so it was  decided to create the ultramodern Hangar 7.

It’s not just the idea and the concept of Hangar-7 to be outside the ordinary; the process of its construction has been pretty extraordinary as well. Because of its unusual shape, the model has even had to pass the  wind tunnel tests. Finally, in 2003, Hangar 7 has been  opened to the public and become a real attraction for tourists and curious.

It is an impressive space, of innovative design, where aviation history, technology, entertainment, art and cooking are woven together to create a coexistence absolutely unique.

To decorate such a prestigious location, Red Bull choosed an Italian company: matteograssi. . The modern, attractive design of its products was immediately appreciated by Mr. Red Bull himself, convinced that the quality of the Brianza company’s creations  could enhance the interiors of its futuristic Hangar.

Initally, Dietrich Mateschitz wanted to furnish his own office, then he asked matteograssi to study and realize the furniture for the collective areas. Matteograssi supplied the Hangar with Openside collection, designed by Franco Poli, to make lovely the ground floor where people are welcomed to visit the museum. The clean lines of the sofas are enhanced by soft leather covers and have been realized in Bianco Neve and Rosso Bolero following the project strongly endorsed by Mateschitz himself.

A lot of other products have been placed in the waiting areas and in the operation spaces such as UL400 benches, designed by Ulrich, Blox, Bristol and Berlin sofas, Mizar and Carol swivel armchairs and Metron tables. A total of  262 seats. All the furniture has been realized in fine coach hide and soft leather  with matteograssi’s comfortable lines that adapt particularly  to the social areas.
