Furniture design from Germany is not only comfortable to sit on, it is also uncomfortably provocative. Whilst it generally sticks to the straight and narrow, it is sometimes blatantly off-centre. And though its aesthetics might not always be accessible at first glance, they are made to last a lifetime. A look beneath the surface reveals why.
Design legends of the Bauhaus movement like Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe would find todayâ€˜s world a perplexing place. German design is running out of steam. Shelves are losing their structure, sofas have to be stuffed post-purchase, strangely bent legs appear to keep the tabletop horizontal purely by chance and lamps look like wire skeletons held together with strips of fabric.
Each year, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) determines which leading trade fairs can be supported through involvement in shared stands. The aim of this promotion programme is to support young entrepreneurs in the marketing of innovative products.
Through this, the BMWi aims to strengthen both Germany as a centre of innovation and the export of new products and processes. For 2009, imm cologne, which will take place from 19 to 25 January 2009, has been included in the promotion programme alongside other leading Koelnmesse trade fairs.
â€žEncourage, enable, empowerâ€œ â€“ this is the motto of the first DesignCamp in Europe. The DesignCamp Cologne will be held at imm cologne 2009 (international furnishing show) and is organized by a team of volunteers. The international event is free of charge for participating designers who are welcome to come to Cologne at the weekend of January 24th and 25th, 2009 to present their visionary, creative and innovative design ideas.
â€žLet a thousand flowers bloomâ€œ â€“ diversity of topics and participants foster a creative ecosphere
â€œUser-generatedâ€œ sessions help the participants of the DesignCamp Cologne to exchange new ideas and concepts, to get informed about the latest trends, to get inspired and to present their own projects.
To transcend barriers, the DesignCamp Cologne is open for all disciplines of design. Architects, web designer, interior designer, product designer, 3D designer, industrial designer, photo designer, graphic designer and multimedia designer â€“ everybody is welcome and encouraged to present his session and his favorite topic. In this creative ecosphere new interdisciplinary ideas can evolve and lead to unique concepts and solutions never seen before.

At imm cologne 2009 planners of big projects find the suitable offers of the exhibitors, listed in the Contract business guide.
Pointing the way: For projects ranging from hotel complexes and administration buildings to sports arenas, hospitals and luxury apartment houses â€” major projects of every kind that require comprehensive supply services are one of todayâ€™s hot trends. That’s true not only in Asia and the USA, but also increasingly in Europe. And the trend shows no signs of slowing down.
Discerning: Supply and demand have increased to unexpected levels in this dynamically growing market. To make it easier for professionals to orient themselves under these conditions, this year we have once again compiled the Contract Business Guide with the support of the most renowned and interesting partners in the field of contract business.
The Trendboard at the imm cologne has identified four major interior design trends for 2009. Here is the fourth one: Re-Run Time.
One of the highlights of the imm cologne 2009 is Stephen Burksâ€™ Composite Lounge in hall 11. The ecological and artisanal aspects of his work are especially important for the famous designer from New York.
Burksâ€™ latest project, the Composite Lounge, raises the question if the enormous abundance of industrially produced mass furniture is compatible with the demands of sustainable economic activities. The lounge, being almost a huge installation, reminds of a street scene.
Burks combines urban elements such as street lamps and huge dumpsters with a motley collection of piled up new sofas and seats held together by gaudy straps.
