Green is the new black, at IMM Cologne

download DAMNº's free imm Cologne guide and visit the fair 16-22 January !

January 2017
The 68th edition of IMM is once again flanked and empowered by the LivingKitchen and Pure Textile sections. And, although it is needless to share the good news from the fair front, we are doing so anyway: all the exhibition spaces are fully booked. Besides the many companies present here, imm cologne has been sampling new wares and is showcasing some of the freshest design discourses throughout its vast halls, in the form of original mind-sets and platforms, staging new and different design and interior perspectives as experienced and expressed by a bunch of young creators. Read all about these things in DAMNº's IMM guide, where we’ve selected a few highlights for you.
As per usual – nosing-around on the other side of the Rhine can do wonders; and for those with an insatiable design appetite, it is worth a visit to some of the Passagen locations dotted throughout the city, with the obligatory first pit-stop being Design Post just across the street – both for the good wine and ditto design. And there’s also the fine opening event at the MAKK – Cologne’s Museum of Applied Arts. And so much more.
While the DAMN° imm cologne Guide 2017 includes helpful input on how to navigate the fair and the city, its special merits are in the fresh background info and subtitles it provides, all geared-up and ready-made for You, whether you’re a design-lover, a professional, or all of the above. And oh yeah, in 2017, green will apparently be the new black. Check it out and please let us know if it’s true...!
Check this out, too: DAMNº invited Ross Lovegrove to work with Alcantara® material. The fabulous result is an installation called 'In-formation' and is on view at imm Cologne, 16-22 January 2017, between halls 3 & 11; Mon 9am – 9pm, Tue-Sat 9am – 6pm, Sun 9am – 5pm. Welcome!
