imm cologne 2013

Every year in January, Cologne hosts a modern furniture and design fair, one of the largest in the world. I went last year and it was so great I knew I wanted to see it again. 

Luca Nichetto was this year's 'Das Haus' exhibitionist, most of the furniture in his installation designed by him. I liked 

this stool

 very much.  More on what 'Das Haus' is and Luca Nichtto

This vase by

Wonderable

blew me away. Ceramic knick-nacks invade the outside porcelain walls. 

Pastels were everywhere.  The lanterns and candles were playful. 

Vitra's

 divider walls were made out of translucent, simple, stackable, plastic boxes.

Indoor/Outdoor Furniture swirls and bends. 

The cafe area was made successfully intimate via illuminated cylinders, quite the feat considering the hall's high ceilings.   

This carpet type was everywhere: colorful, stitched, and vintage-feel.
