In just a few weeks, imm cologne, a leading international furniture trade show and marketplace and one of the first international interior design shows of the year, takes over Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. The exhibition focuses on contemporary design, innovative materials and fabrics, and architectural lighting design technology. With over 1200 exhibitors – from international brands to up-and-coming designers, the show is a rich resource for inspiring ideas and the latest trends in the industry.
Event highlights this year include:
Das Haus – Interiors on Stage, a setting-like structure of spacious interiors and “housing cages.” This year, the Shanghai-based architects Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu will show an installation under the title “Memory Lane”, which, inspired by the Shanghai Lane Houses, combines Chinese tradition with contemporary design and thus would lead to a discussion about housing rituals.
Pure Talents, a new platform for young and up-and-coming international designers
The Sleep Lounge – “9 turns 9″: at imm cologne 2015, Hall 9 celebrates the 9th anniversary of the Sleep segment, while the Matratzen-Industrie e.V. trade association, partner of Koelnmesse in the Sleep sector, celebrates its 10th anniversary. To commemorate, the association will be creating a film and welcome guests with the best scenes of the past years. The Lounge will be decorated with motifs from the anniversary film itself and from the classic cinema of the 50’s and 60’s. Some of the film clips specifically reflect the association’s different fields of competence. As is tradition, the Sleep Lounge will also host the “meet@sleep” party on Tuesday evening.
Café Trussardi in Hall 10.1 will make its debut. The booth combines the exclusive design of one of the world’s leading big brands with haute cuisine. itself communicates the level of quality and style which the Trussardi Group pursues in all of its commercial interests. It is therefore no surprise that – just like the original in Milan – Café Trussardi at imm cologne will present a straightforward and distinctive cuisine.
