With his distinctive love for detail, Gdansk-born fashion designer Dawid Tomaszewski is known for his avant-garde design and uncompromisingly perfect fits. Art, architecture and music are the sources of inspiration for his creations. Now, Tomaszewski has produced a new design to clothe a wing chair from the “freistil” (freestyle) range by sofa label Rolf Benz. The result can be seen this coming January at imm cologne.

Deluxe camping in harmony with nature

Glamping is a new trend that has set out to take camping to new heights with its equation “glamour” + “camping”. And it has nothing to do with sleeping in damp, uncomfortable places, wearing soggy clothes and getting wet feet. Glamping accommodation simply cannot be compared to conventional tents. Comfortable beds with sprung mattresses, proper furniture, stoves for welcoming warmth – the interior can even include a bathroom complete with bathtub.

OLEDs are a relatively recently developed illuminant. The technology is predominantly used in TVs, smartphones and tablets. But OMLED luminaires also employ OLEDs. Their new lamps go by the name of OMLED Round and transform glare-free light from the light-emitting diodes – which are in fact square – to give the light source a circular appearance.

Our working worlds are transforming. We no longer work from nine to five – or nine to seven. Flexitime is the new normal – whenever our personal performance is at its best. Co-working studios are constantly popping up, spaces that promote networking and encourage their users to constantly exchange ideas and knowledge with each other. Stationary workstations are expanding into digital platforms that you can log into anywhere.

He is one of the most flamboyant figures on the German designer and fashion scene. But Harald Glööckler creates more than just fashion under his label Pompöös. To crown it all, he wants to extend his realm to the interior landscape, whether it’s with wallpaper, lighting, home accessories or even a complete prefabricated house. Now the Prince of Pompöös is launching a box spring bed collection.

A combination of design, feel and function

With furniture, we arrange our flats, express our style and perhaps even make a visual statement. But we don’t decide whether we like a table or a sofa based on their looks alone – feel and function also play a role. The challenge lies in combining all three factors. With his master’s project at Folkwang University, the bureau “Kabinett”, Tim zum Hoff has even succeeded in directly linking a tactile experience with a function – the bureau’s compartments are illuminated by brushing a hand gently across its surface.
