Light as a fully-fledged design at imm cologne 2018
At imm cologne 2018, the subject of light had been illuminated from two key perspectives: firstly, decorative light in its most varied forms and lighting-fixture designs and, secondly, technical lighting with complex and easily controllable lighting solutions.
Decorative light 2018: a focus at Pure Editions
Luminaires that emit subtle light, add the final touch to a room as a design element or pick out key eye-catching features will be found in abundance in the Pure Editions area. Pure Editions stands for young, visionary and innovative design. As the showcase for design installations, Halls 2.2, 3.1 and 3.2 are very popular with interior designers and end users. The addition of the subject of light to the focus of Pure Editions fits in very well with the overall concept.
Special exhibitions and supporting programme on the subject of light
Featured Editions, the special exhibition format at Pure Editions, in which exhibitors and creatives work together to turn products into extraordinary objects, had also embraced the “light” theme. On around ten sites spread between Halls 2.2 and 3.2, a wide variety of lighting installations filled the tent-like lighting fixtures that form the transparent structure for Featured Editions 2018. Alongside the product presentations and design events, a special programme of talks on a broad range of subjects relating to light provided architects, interior designers and end users with additional information and inspiration.
New exhibition format Pure Architects presents the technical and creative possibilities offered by architectural lighting solutions
Pure Architects, on the other hand, is transforming itself into the home of technical lighting. LEDs, integrated lighting systems, lighting technology, lighting design, architectural lighting – the subject takes on a whole new dimension in the new-look Hall 4.2. The intelligent and efficient control of light sources via apps is just one topic could be discovered in the smart homes segment. Visitors also got to see behind the scenes of technical lighting. This had been especially interesting for installation technicians and architects. But Pure Architects and the subject of technical lighting also inspired trade fair visitors who are in the middle of renovating their homes, remodelling or building a new house. With the addition of Pure Architects to the Pure range, imm cologne is bringing all of the well-established interiors components together in one exhibition format.
