Welcome to an unknown world: video “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage“ at imm cologne 2015

Das Haus 2015

imm cologne’s “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” has never possessed such an imposing architectural force: Whereas in 2014, the visitor was invited into the interior of Louise Campbell’s “Haus”, a country-house-like, Scandinavian-cosy space, the installation by the Chinese architect couple Rossana Hu and Lyndon Neri affects the beholder more like a challenge to be overcome.

Imm cologne’s “Das Haus” has never possessed such imposing architectural force. Last year, the visitor was invited into the interior of Louise Campbell’s “Haus”, a country-house-like, Scandinavian-cosy space. This year, the installation by the Chinese architect couple Rossana Hu and Lyndon Neri affects the beholder more like a challenge to be overcome.

With a number of days still to go until Christmas, Koelnmesse’s hall 2.2 was already a hotbed of activity. Now, Pure Village is nearing completion: the numerous cubes are ready for the many ambitious design brands that will be exhibiting here to move into.

Part of the principle behind the imm cologne design event “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” is that a new designer is invited to make his or her mark on the interior design platform every year. For the 2015 edition of the project, the Cologne trade fair has brought the Shanghai-based Neri&Hu Design and Research Office on board. The two architects are one of the hottest creative teams in the world right now – and the imm cologne is bringing them to Germany. In our interview, the imm cologne’s Creative Director Dick Spierenburg explains the background to this development.
