Fritz August Breuhaus (de Groot) – Hindenburg Interiors

Fritz August Breuhaus (de Groot) was the principal architect responsible for the passenger spaces of the zeppelin Hindenburg, which was launched in 1936.

Breuhaus applied his characteristically clean, modern style to the airship’s public rooms and furniture, which was especially well-suited to the dirigible’s need for lightweight materials and construction.

Breuhaus worked on the project with frequent collaborator Otto Arpke, who created paintings to decorate the airship’s rooms.

Thanks for this post. I’m totally into design, and follow eductation for it here in Arnhem (Holland). Keep up the good work! I’ll keep following posts on this blog.

Greetings from Holland


I like the paintings, really unusual to see them there, especially directly on the walls.
