imm cologne 2020
In what has long since become a tradition on the occasion of imm cologne, Stylepark and AD Architectural Digest invited 200 selected guests to a cocktail reception at Marc Meiré’s. And once again, everyone who is someone in the design world turned up. The who’s-who of the European furniture industry rubbed shoulders with designers such as Luca Nichetto, Sebastian Herkner, Stefan Diez, Alfredo Häberli, Gesa Hansen, Hanne Willmann, Mark Braun, Marcel Besau and Eva Marguerre.
The management of Rolf Benz had a cozy tête-à-tête with their colleagues from COR and enjoyed the atmosphere at the open fireplace. The corporate management of Cassina came together with the heads of Pedrali, Edra, Minotti, Jan Kath, e15, Gloster, Ligne Roset, Schönbuch, Magis, Tobias Grau, Dedon, Dallmer and Bocci.
Architects and interior designers such as Amandus Samsøe Sattler (Allmann Sattler Wappner), Tilla Goldberg (Ippolito Fleitz Group), Chris Middleton and Karim El-Ishmawi (Kinzo), Susanne Brandherm and Sabine Krumrey (brandherm + krumrey) or Lars Krückeberg and Thomas Willemeit (Graft) swapped their impressions of the fair. As everyone wanted to join the party, it was at times a bit of a challenge for the Talking Tables team to get treats such as “gratinated fig with Roquefort and crumble”, “Chorizo with cress and mint dip” or “salmon tartare on cucumber sour cream and pumpernickel” to all the guests. When the party wound down at around 3 a.m., everyone was already excitedly looking forward the tradition of the first fair evening at Marc Meiré’s continuing in 2021.
