Fans of sushi, summer rolls, and spring bowls can rejoice: With a grand opening party, Tokygon in the Hashtag#SKYPER Carré has officially opened its doors and is now serving Asian delicacies right next to the SKYPER Tower. The name, combining Tokyo and Saigon, says it all: Inspired by a Japanese-Vietnamese romance, Tokygon offers dishes, ingredients, and harmonious fusions from the beloved culinary traditions of both countries.

Guests at the opening were already convinced by the concept: extremely fresh, beautifully presented food that not only tastes fantastic but is also served by a super friendly staff—this is how the many 5-star reviews on Google can be summarized. The stylish ambiance, which blends Japanese and Vietnamese influences just like the menu, also received enthusiastic approval.

With this new culinary offering, tenants of the SKYPER now have another quality option for lunch and dinner. We wish you a good appetite and pleasant times!

JEPPE HEIN ENTANGLED EMOTIONS– A site-specific sculpture for Frankfurt’s urban space

Between the iconic SKYPER Tower and the listed SKYPER Villa lies a sheltered forecourt in the middle of Frankfurt‘s banking district. Bright yellow, three monumental streetlights have been winding their way up to the sky there since these days. Reflected in the gleaming façade of the tower, the ensemble now forms the artistic prelude to this location and opens up a dialogue with the surroundings and its people. Elongated, curved, swaying masts with wide arches, tight curves and small loops combine to create dancing, moving forms. The sculptures provide identity by day and guiding light at night.

Jeppe Hein, who studied at Städelschule in Frankfurt and has a deep connection to the city, was aware of the inner-city contrasts when he developed the three-part work Entangled Emotions (2024) as site-specific light sculptures especially for the SKYPER forecourt. Hein‘s commissioned work for Frankfurt is a social interplay between city, people and open space: created to functionally and poetically extend a playful invitation to linger.

Entangled Emotions was conceived as a permanent work in urban space and commissioned by Ampega Asset Management GmbH as the owner‘s representative. SKYPER Tower is a landmark in the Frankfurt skyline. Its unusual floor plan in the shape of a quarter circle gives the high-rise its architectural extravagance, and the SKYPER has always been one of the smartest high-rises in Frankfurt in terms of sustainability, efficiency and innovation. Ampega is continuing along this path, with a focus on inspiring working environments and a new urban quality of life. As part of the development of the tower, the public areas on the first floor and the forecourt of the SKYPER are now being redesigned under the leadership of the architecture firm BilleBeyeScheid from Frankfurt. The architects paid particular attention to creating a suitable setting for Jeppe Hein‘s art.

The inauguration of the art and the new public areas of the SKYPER, including the forecourt, will take place in the summer. Further information will follow.
