This building is inconspicuous from the outside, but inside it one is surprised by the atmosphere of curvaceous, elegant forms, and the snow-white design of the seventies. The red-and-yellow Iberia logo is the only noticeable splash of colour. The room is furnished with chairs by Eero Saarinen, seat covers by Dieter Rams. They make the customer forget that the two travel agencies were only designed in 1986 / 1987. They are the last of Iberia's agencies to be designed in this way, and a renovation in 1994 did nothing to change the situation.
