Tuesday

Abitare Talks at MAKK, Cologne
Abitare meets Patricia Urquiola, Stefan Diez and Marco Romanelli.

January 17th, 6,30 pm. during imm cologne 2012
Patricia Urquiola, Stefan Diez and Marco Romanelli will have an Abitare’s talk. The debate will explore the two main possibilities open to designers – the Italian way, a continuation of design history and the achievements of the great design masters, according to which the road to furniture design is through architecture, and the German way according to which furniture design is a specific offshoot of product design. Personal experience, training, the organizational structuring of the key manufacturers and a variety of historical considerations will be taken into account as we seek to define differences between two approaches to design that seem clear enough in principle, but quickly blur when one considers the careers and achievements of our three practicing designers. One question underlies the entire discussion: is it still possible to imagine a “complete designer” like Alvar Aalto or Gio Ponti, motivated and equipped to address issues relating to the “human environment” in the broadest sense, or is the trend towards ever-greater specialization and complexity so irreversible as to admit only more inclusive forms of cross-disciplinary collaboration in design?

Wednesday

“With ‘Das Haus – Interiors on Stage’, the imm cologne is resuming the tradition of the Ideal Houses, although without adopting their rather abstract dimension,” explains Dick Spierenburg, under whose leadership Koelnmesse’s internal creative team is developing and implementing the project. Instead, the imm cologne is very deliberately seeking to connect with real conditions, thus building a bridge between the industry’s furnishing products and the progressive creative drive of the international design elite. The project focuses on the design of an artificial living situation within the trade fair – public and yet very personal living space designed by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien.

The London-based design team will be kicking off the new format in January 2012. “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” will show a structure created entirely in accordance with the guest designer’s ideas – architectural elements, interior and outdoor space – as well as arrangements of furniture and furnishing elements for an individually configured interior design. In the middle of the Pure Village hall, the trade fair will erect an approx. 180 m² platform to serve as an open stage for the project. “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” is thus both a designer portrait and a visionary blueprint, an example of how it is possible to create a world of one’s own that becomes an expression of one’s own personality.

Thursday

Architectural tours Get to know Cologne’s architectural highlights a little better. The construction of the new Central Mosque represents the multicultural flair of Cologne’s inhabitants, manifested in exciting architecture. First and foremost, the city is characterised by its different neighbourhoods, each of which has its own identity. On a journey through four different areas of the city, you can experience fascinating, innovative building projects first-hand. It also includes the Museum Kolumba and the architectural minimalism in Cologne. The program is rounded off by the most ambitious urban development project in Cologne within recent years, the Rheinauhafen. Extra tour – Chapel to Saint Nicholas of Flüe, designed by Peter Zumthor
