The Pitfalls of Objects – Episode 1: Nature is Super
The Pitfalls of Objects – Episode 1: Nature is Super
by Thomas Wagner | 30 gennaio 2009

A chair is a chair and a table is a table and so on and so forth... That is correct and yet incorrect. For the symbolic qualities of the things that surround us daily are by no means as functional as a chic hat on a bonehead. Yet even symbolism has its pitfalls.

Braving the crisis with power and creativity
Braving the crisis with power and creativity
by Daniel von Bernstorff | 27 gennaio 2009

It was tough going for Cologne's furniture fair this year. But not everyone let the crisis get them down. There were some strong showings in connection with the imm cologne, but naturally this overview is incomplete and subjective.

Once upon a time or coccooning
Once upon a time or coccooning
by Thomas Wagner | 26 gennaio 2009

Just holding its own but lacking in innovation. This would be a reasonable description of this year's "imm Cologne" you might say. "The international furniture fair" as the Cologne event officially calls itself is losing glamour and international flair. If it wants to survive it must become innovative especially in the high-end design segment.

A mobile architectural unit

City tour at behest of design
City tour at behest of design
by Nancy Jehmlich | 23 gennaio 2009

What people look for at the fair, but seldom find, is freely available elsewhere. In Ehrenfeld, in the Art Club's exhibition rooms, and in the former Railway Board building, there is plenty going on as part of the "Passagen" - and you'll find more than just young designers there. You'll find improvised kitchens and amusing design.

Between the worlds
Between the worlds
by Franziska Holzmann | 21 gennaio 2009

"And, have you already been to Isfahan and Shiraz?" After asking how you are and where you come from, this is probably the most frequent question you will be asked when visiting Teheran. Since Shiraz is a city of romantic gardens and thus of spring, the winter trip goes to Isfahan, the old capital of the Safawid Empire, a pearl of Islamic architecture and a Persian delight. Indeed, the city's very name has a poetic ring to it: "Oh Is-fa-haaan, oh Is-fa-haaan"

Art, design and good food – a promising trio
Art, design and good food – a promising trio
by Claudia Beckmann | 19 gennaio 2009

Postmodern architecture is not having an easy time of it at the moment. It is the unloved child which everyone resents, but which is still part of the family. In Frankfurt, too, there is currently a great deal of controversy and divided opinion on what would be the best approach to the architectural relics.

Loungeseat looking for Lightness
Loungeseat looking for Lightness
by Anneke Bokern | 16 gennaio 2009

There is a legendary furniture scene in Jacques Tati's 1958 film classic Mon Oncle. The lady of the house gives the neighbor a tour of her modern home and stops in front of a paltry composition of wire chairs. "This is our seating area," she says proudly, and the spectator smiles. For let's be honest, wire furniture is a strenuous contemporary. It inevitably has the dreaded ‘rolled roast effect' on the sitter's derrière.

No January without Cologne
No January without Cologne
by Thomas Wagner | 9 gennaio 2009

The old year has gone, and the Cologne furniture fair is about to come. Even if everything that glitters is not gold - we cannot do without Cologne. And so we take the imm in the best sense as an event typified by that Cologne casualness: It always somehow functioned, so it will function this time.
