In 1996 Lufthansa German Airlines (Deutscher Lufthansa) began a comprehensive redesign of its corporate identity, including airplane interiors, airport ticketing, gates, and passenger facilities. Michael McDonough Architect provided the architectural design component within a team headed by industrial designers Frogdesign, Inc., and including lighting designers Belzner, Kucan, und Partner, and airlines consultants Lufthansa Consulting. Frankfurt Airport was the site of the first phase of the project, where passenger lounges, departure and arrival gates, ticket counters, and numerous other airport facilities were redesigned, then later deployed throughout the Lufthansa system in Germany. Environmentally sound technologies were incorporated throughout the project, with special emphasis on energy efficient lighting and use of natural materials.
