The new year has barely begun and we are already immensely looking forward to the first highlights: At the Cologne furniture fair imm cologne, which runs from January 19 to 25, Stylepark is curating the “Featured Editions” show for the third time. All the exhibitors in the “Pure Editions” section were able to submit an installation to apply for one of the 14 platforms that are distributed around Hall 3.2, and also for the first time Hall 2.2. From over 30 entries a jury chaired by Stylepark selected the 14 most impressive designs.
This time around the exhibitors were especially daring in crafting new concepts that extended the boundaries of their own product range, and the quality of the entries was correspondingly high. Accordingly, the “Featured Editions” with their differing formats and typologies will add a certain dramatic tension to the manufacturer presentations of the “Pure Editions”.
Without a doubt one of the most spectacular installations will be the sculpture by Greek artist Evangelos Papadopoulos for the Cubit shelving supplier Mymito, which he will create in nine days before the fair opens. High-fliers of the design scene such as Werner Aisslinger with his presentation “creatchair” for Conmoto, Sebastian Herkner with “Collar Rain” for Gubi or Studio Hannes Wettstein with “clouds of cuttings” for Horgenglarus will be there, as will newcomers Petite Friture in cooperation with young designer Hanna Ernsting, Schneiderschram featuring a creation by Läufer+Keichel and Zanat, which will be presented by Emir Salkic.
For all those wanting to get an overview we recommend the presentation on Monday, January 19, 2015 at 4.15 p.m. at “The Stage” forum in Hall 2.2.
