German agency Jung von Matt developed a creative way to visualize the annual report of L-Bank, State Bank of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The goal of the project was to take the audience that normally reads the document and lead them through a museum-like experience that translated abstract numbers and percentages into concrete art objects. Each individual installation represents one of the following:

  • business development
  • economic development
  • residential development
  • helping families
  • environmental and climate protection
  • infrastructure development
  • education
  • technology parks

For example, the 266 desk lamps (pictured above) represent the number of company headquarters located in parks. Another installation features black balloons suspended over a gallery with a small stool in the center. These 538 balloons symbolize the 538 metric tons of carbon dioxide that the bank saves per month, due to green choices and operations.
