Architonic Special imm cologne 2016

imm cologne

In the beginning there was Cologne. 1949 to be exact. imm cologne set the blueprint for the large international design trade fair and has been attracting a global crowd of A&D professionals looking for inspiration and to do business ever since.

 

As the first major exhibition of the year in the industry calendar, it also sets the mood and outlines the trends, to a certain extent, for the year ahead. And let’s not forget it’s where a fledgling Architonic first set up its stall many moons ago.

 

Of particular interest to architects and interior architects at the 2016 edition of the show – beyond the 1,200 exhibitors from over 50 countries, plus emerging young design talent – will be the ‘Smart Home’ installation in Hall 4.2, which stages the latest in intelligent networking, and Sebastian Herkner’s ‘Das Haus’ in Hall 2.2, which offers visitors the chance to investigate a total, concept-led living environment.

What gives architectural spaces that something extra? Along with the classical interior design vocabulary of colour, surfaces, and materials, accessories play an ever greater role here. That is, space-defining accessories that congenially complement the architecture or set a deliberate counterpoint. (by Johannes Hünig)

Who doesn’t like Christmas? The hospitality industry certainly does. The festive period sees high levels of guests, diners and, of course, tippers. As we approach The Big Day, we survey the restaurant as project type, identifying an international trend for converted spaces that retain aspects of their original interior-architectural fabric, giving them new resonance. Bon appetit!
