IT ALL BEGAN WITH A VISION
1927 BERLIN, GERMANY
Fritz Lang’s monumental silent film METROPOLIS celebrated its premiere in January 1927. The film is set in the futuristic city of Metropolis, which was inspired by New York during that time. METROPOLIS is considered a visionary, timelessly relevant epic that paved the way for the science-fiction genre. Even today, this masterpiece has lost none of its mythical and inspirational quality, making it the perfect choice to name METROPOLITAN after.
READY TO CONQUER THE WORLD
METROPOLITAN’s lasting success spoke for itself. In 2011, it became a protected brand name worldwide and the collection got expanded. A dedicated design and product development team put a great deal of love, passion and expertise into METROPOLITAN, which won prizes such as the Red Dot Design Award as soon as it was launched and is rapidly establishing itself as an independent label on the international stage.
