For imm cologne 2016, Sebastian Herkner designed a round and in part transparent house. The movable curtains used instead of wall elements allow new perspectives again and again — and thus a totally new and, in its consistency, unique concept. In Sebastian Herkner’s design, “Das Haus” becomes a statement with symbolic significance, a stand against societal isolation.

Das Apartment HAUS provides him with a currently exciting theme in 2021: the promotion of an entirely new attitude towards life. Especially with a view to the residential highrises in cities like New York, in which spacious communal space provide a counterweight to the mostly very small apartments. As with a project in Frankfurt, in which he was involved. That is the part that also interests him especially in the current project of imm cologne and which he will take on.
