Jürgen Ringel, an architect in Düsseldorf, received his diploma from Egon Eiermann, one of the most important architects of the post-war period. As an architect, e.g. in partnership with Paul Schneider-Esleben, Ringel designed and realized numerous buildings – as well as furniture and lights.
Each of his projects was new, with innovative concepts, constructions, details, from urban planning to furniture design, always a harmonious whole, a constant search for "new lines". As a teenager, Jürgen Ringel played the violin passionately. Every note and every phrasing had to be right. This precision and critical thinking can also be found later in his architecture. His last building was the Benzenberg observatory in Düsseldorf Benrath in 2003 with a view into new spheres.
