Light brings the materials to life
“Kate and Joel have done a fantastic job,” says Dick Spierenburg, Creative Director of imm cologne. “We naturally get to see the initial plans in the summer, but it’s always exciting to see what ‘Das Haus’ really looks like at the end. With this project, we consciously want to provide an opportunity for young designers who have a real feel for interior design that reflects the emerging attitude towards life on the horizon. Studio Truly Truly combines this sensibility with an extraordinary instinct for high quality craftsmanship. And this is something you can see in their ‘Haus’”, says Spierenburg, delighted with the installation.
The design duo’s love of the materials that they work with was clear in their vision. Glass and wool, wood and metal were bathed in the unique lighting that Studio Truly Truly skilfully staged with a further development of the Typography Lighting System (Rakumba). The materials exuded a charm that visitors could not resist. They didn’t just take photographs; they felt, patted and stroked. “Das Haus” may have been made from the finest materials, but it was still a blueprint of a home that visitors could behold, try out and touch. However you feel, this is living by moods.
“Das Haus” – half portrait of the designer, half model home
The “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” installation is a simulated residential house at the Interior Business Event imm cologne. Every year, a new designer is nominated and, based on their plans and designs, the fair organises the erection of an approximately 180-square-metre house in the Pure Editions area, Hall 3.1. The furniture, colours, materials, lighting and accessories are also selected by the designer, rendering the finished house an individual, integrated configuration of interior design. The project looks at contemporary furnishing trends but also at the aspirations of the viewing public as well as social change.
