In just under a week it is time at last – imm cologne opens its doors again. This year “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” by Sebastian Herkner is not only a complete contrast to its predecessors, but also to the conventional living we are familiar with. Circular, more or less translucent and with next to no solid walls, the visitors can look forward to a totally new experience.

The new edition of “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” stands in bold contrast with all living conventions. It is circular, more or less transparent and has almost no solid wall elements. Nonetheless, Sebastian Herkner’s house promises to be a sensual experience – a house that is soft and aromatic, colourful and communicative. In the interview with Oliver Herwig, the designer talks about the conception of his installation.

The new edition of “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” stands in bold contrast with not only the compact installation from Neri&Hu at the last imm cologne, but in fact also with all living conventions. It is circular, more or less transparent and has almost no solid wall elements. Nonetheless, Sebastian Herkner’s house promises to be a sensual experience – a house that is soft and aromatic, colourful and communicative, and which is able to change its form like a chameleon.
