About Christoph Ingenhoven
Christoph Ingenhoven coming from a family of architecture was born in 1960 in Düsseldorf and studied Architecture at RWTH Aachen from 1978 to 1984. Subsequently, he graduated 1981 from the Art Academy Düsseldorf. In 1985, Christoph Ingenhoven set up his own business under the name of ingenhoven architects and is based in Düsseldorf. The studio aims to create architecture that responds to each respective location in a specific way and, at the same time, tries to find architectural answers to urgent questions of the present and near future. Christoph Ingenhoven is one of the leading architects committed to sustainable and ecological architecture. Elegance, efficiency, the economical use of resources and a high degree of aesthetic quality and innovative technology characterize his buildings and are all part of his philosophy. His architectural office received international recognition in 1997 with the design of one of the first ecological skyscrapers worldwide, the RWE tower in Essen. www.ingenhovenarchitects.com

In Dhivehi, the official language of the Maldives, “velaa” means turtle. It is after this extremely endangered species that OBJECT CARPET has named their new design developed exclusively for Healthy Seas. Practical protection of seas and an aesthetic highlight with future potential. Available both as broadloom and Acoustic Tiles. The graphic structure of the design is derived from the sea turtle shell pattern. With each square meter of VELAA produced, they support the sustainable initiative for the protection of our seas.
