Special Event at the Berlin company Ampelmann
On the invitation of the Berlin company, Ampelmann, our May Special Event took place in the Ampelmann Restaurant, situated at the historic S-Bahn arch close to the Hackeschen Market.
We met the sympathetic and warm "traffic light family" headed by the founder, designer and managing director Markus Heckhausen. Together with Mrs. Peglau, wife of the original "traffic light father", the late Karl Peglau who was the traffic psychologist at the former Ministry of Transport in East Berlin, Mr. Heckhausen described to us vividly the journey of the little traffic light man in the traffic signalling devices in GDR becoming a world-wide cult brand: an interesting, beautiful and successful Berlin story.
Our members were treated subsequently to a buffet lunch and were given Ampelmann souvenirs.
