Das Haus

Interiors on Stage 2012 - 2022

Anniversary edition: 10 years of Das Haus

There is magic in every beginning - reason enough to give the project "Das Haus" a new stage for the anniversary edition at imm cologne 2022 after 10 years! As the centerpiece of the fair, "Das Haus" presented itself as the international designers' personal interpretation of life and living in the future - and in a very individual way. At the same time, the last nine editions reflected the world's social and cultural changes in various facets, also by the designers taking up topics such as climate change and the scarcity of resources in their designs, thus making a statement time and again.

For the anniversary year, three designers, three stories, three urban living ideas perspectives were planned for "Das Apartment HAUS". For this, the imm cologne was able to win Luca Nichetto, Sebastian Herkner and Studio Truly Truly to create innovative interior design solutions for contemporary living in apartments and co-living areas in a unique get-together.

"It was supposed to be a celebration for all design fans and the preliminary culmination of one of the most prestigious design events in the interior design industry. However, after we had to cancel imm cologne and with it "Das Apartment HAUS" due to the pandemic in 2021, we are starting the re-launch of imm cologne in January 20202 in a more compact form. In the course of positioning the event, we have also decided on a new visualization for "Das Apartment HAUS" - in line with the event," says Claire Steinbrück, Director of imm cologne. "Even though we are redesigning the project with a different visualization, we want to continue telling the story and thus the fascination that is "Das Haus"," adds Dick Spierenburg, Creative Director of imm cologne. "Visions of "Das Apartment HAUS" is a tribute to "Das Haus". It sticks to the basic idea of showing design solutions for contemporary living in apartments and co-living areas. It's an exciting and important theme that we're determined to push forward," the creative director continued.

So what's new?

Visitors will experience three sophisticated living visions, three very unique and personal perspectives and interpretations, in three open-plan areas. The creative teams bring very different levels of style to the project. But what they all have in common is that they will use their spaces to present new developments with brands such as Thonet, Wittmann, Leolux, Rakumba, Schönbuch, Gandia Blasco, Ethimo, Wendelbo, Lodes, Arflex, La Manufacture, Freifrau, Classicon, CoEdition and many others.

Das Haus 2017 by Todd Bracher

Das Haus 2017 by Todd Bracher

What do we need to live? The design by Todd Bracher, with which the US designer surprised the visitors of the imm cologne 2017 can be reduced down to this simple question. Especially since they still could recall last year’s “Das Haus” with its very different design that confused the senses – full of colours, scents, textile haptics, round in shape, transparent and open on all sides. Whereas Sebastian Herkner demonstrated sensual indulgence recently, Todd Bracher is limiting himself down to the essentials.

This edition of “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” stands in bold contrast with not only the compact installation from Neri&Hu at the last imm cologne, but in fact also with all living conventions. It is circular, more or less transparent and has almost no solid wall elements. Nonetheless, Sebastian Herkner’s house promises to be a sensual experience – a house that is soft and aromatic, colourful and communicative, and which is able to change its form like a chameleon.

imm cologne’s “Das Haus” has never possessed such imposing architectural force. Last year, the visitor was invited into the interior of Louise Campbell’s “Haus”, a country-house-like, Scandinavian-cosy space. This year, the installation by the Chinese architect couple Rossana Hu and Lyndon Neri affects the beholder more like a challenge to be overcome. And that’s exactly what “Das Haus” 2015 by Neri&Hu is meant to be – a challenge.

koelnmesse has nominated Danish designer Louise Campbell to create “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage 2014”. At the international interior design fair imm cologne in January 2014, she will be building a low-tech house as an open space for flexible use in which the furniture merely serves to symbolise basic functions. For the Dane, flexibility, comfort and scope for creativity are the most important requirements an ideal home should satisfy.

What possibilities do we have for enhancing the way we live? There are technological approaches, sustainability concepts, social and multicultural utopias and ideals. And, since 14th January 2013, there has been an experiment on the idea of green living too: the “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” installation at the current imm cologne, this year designed for the international furniture fair by Luca Nichetto. In his design, the Venetian focuses on solutions intended to enable occupants to live in direct co-existence with nature.

Who says modern everyday life and sensuousness have to be at odds with one another? The “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” installation by Doshi Levien at the imm cologne 2012 aims to furnish evidence to the contrary and launches the new event concept at the fair. In an installation that is visionary not just at architectural level but in creative terms as well, the design experiment is developing into a fascinating study on modern ways of living.
