New ideas and impetus for tomorrow’s lifestyle
Das Haus - Interiors on stage
The reason modernist architecture is so topical again today is that – perhaps for the first time ever – it is compatible with many people’s desire for open living spaces, a more flexible organisation of their lives and aesthetics with a bearing on the present.
This is also the case with the new design event at the international interior design fair: “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage”, an individual, lively home with cultural echoes. A house that permits privacy and publicness, that connects the kitchen, eating and working zones, family and friends, areas of retreat and shared wellness experiences in an individual way.
Interior Innovation Award
2012 the Interior Innovation Award celebrates its 10th anniversary and thus counts to one of the traditional events of the imm cologne. After the opening of the competition for all companies in the interior sector, also for the upcoming imm cologne excellent innovations and good designs will be honoured with the sought-after award by the international appreciated jury. Partner and organizer of the competition is the German Design Council.
Boulevard of Innovations
The competitive exhibition of all honoured products will take place in an extensive special show in Hall 4.2. Get a general idea of the latest developments of the world of interior design.
Cologne Design Night
Highlight in the first few days of the exhibition 2012 will again take place in the shadow of Cologne Cathedral. At the Cologne Design Night on Monday, 16 January 2012, not only the 'Best of Best' of the Interior Innovation Award will be honoured, but also the ‘Who is Who’ of the international furniture sector will meet for the best party at the furniture exhibition week.
Inspirations for the Point of sale
Considering the fact that up to 70 % of the buying decisions from end customers are made at the Point of Sale (POS), this year the "Fachverband Matratzenindustrie e.V." shows five different types of sales room design at its lounge.
Trade representatives who are looking for sales partners may address on-site imm cologne 2012 to the CDH - Centralvereinigung Deutscher Wirtschaftsverbände für Handelsvermittlung und Vertrieb e.V.. The CDH will be present at the linkway between the halls 10 and 11.
