Large-Scale Koons Sculptures Produced in a Small German Town

According to German newspaper Thüringer Allgemeine, large-scale sculptures by Jeff Koons, Claus Bury, Anish Kapoor, and Kazuo Katase have their origins in the small German town of Steinbach-Hallenberg, located in the Thuringian Forest in Eastern Germany.

The metal processing company Arnold AG specializes in steel processing and has its factory in Steinbach-Hallenbach. […] This is the birthplace of several large-scale projects by famous international Contemporary artists such as Anish Kapoor and Jeff Koons. Time and again, the results are seemingly weightless artworks, blown up to the size of gigantic balloons, with high-gloss surfaces.[…] One artwork requires approximately 15,000 working hours.
