IMM Cologne 2018: Perspective's favourite products

 

One of first major design shows of the year, IMM Cologne, helps to set the design bar high for the year. As with many of the industry’s larger trade fairs, it’s a showcase of trends to keep in mind, and products to watch. This year, the event ran from January 14, to 20. We have put together a few pieces that we are loving. Stand out trends include pastel soft colours, and the influence of geometric shapes.

 

YOMA floating bed by Kaschkasch for Zeitraum 

The YOMA gives the illusion that it is floating. The bed has a low frame, that only allows the mattress to sink in a few centimetres, giving the appearance that it is lying on top. Other elements of the YOMA include adjustment back cushions that can be moved and fixed to different positions, depending on the function.

brühl floret sofas

Among Brühl's seating concepts on display this year were the soft impressions of the floret sofa collection. With their rounded edges and air of elegance, the sofas are perfect combination pieces for any interior.

Petite Friture geometric coffee tables 

These tables are a shape-lovers dream. Spanish designer Max Enrich has created a trio of coffee tables for French design brand, Petite Friture. The THIN table collection are all crafted of steel and come in a range of colours. The table trio includes a rectangle, a square and a triangle that play together to create a dynamic feature piece.

Front Parquet rugs 

Created by Swedish designers, Front, is this range of matching geometric poufs that can be added to rug brand, Gan‘s collection of similar tessellating rugs. The products are made entirely of wool using a technique found typically in the Middle east, called kilim.

Moss Sofa by COR

One of our favourites from IMM Cologne 2018, is this couch collection designed by jhs+laub, and on display COR. Soft pastels are once again a feature with this range of furniture. The couch’s impressive size, and soft fabric selection create the perfect lounging tool.
