The so-called ArtCube at the Lufthansa Cargo Centre will in future have an area of 168 square metres and offer its customers secure and professional storage of valuable works of art of all kinds.
The new building is being constructed as part of the modernisation of the air freight hub in Frankfurt initiated by Lufthansa Cargo and is scheduled to go into operation at the end of the year, said the press release.
Said Lufthansa Cargo's chief operations officer Harald Gloy: 'The new ArtCube enables us to offer our customers a secure and modern environment that, combined with dedicated handling, meets the high demands of sensitive art objects.
'We are aware of the special responsibility involved in handling works of art, which are not only valuable but usually unique and irretrievable. For this very reason, we have developed a customised solution for the storage of artworks and exhibits in our hub in close exchange with art forwarders and curators, so that our customers know their shipments are in the best hands,' said Mr Gloy.
The new art warehouse will be self-sufficiently equipped with air-conditioning units with heating and cooling functions, creating an almost constant temperature. Through the vertical window bands the ArtCube receives natural lighting. There is a separate lounge area for art attendants. Access to the special storage area is restricted by state-of-the-art security technology.
