IMM COLOGNE TREND REPORT 2016

header_en

Going Back to the Future

It’s no secret that the furniture world loves a good blast from the past when it comes to introducing ‘new trends’ and at this year’s IMM Cologne Furniture Fair it was no different. There is something very comforting about a familiar design or colour scheme, which transports us back to simpler times.

So how did this translate into the collections of our biggest brands?

With all this in mind we saw many of our biggest brands celebrating their heritage and values within the new collections. Rediscovered classics of mid-century modernity were paired on the stands with new designs covered in materials such as rattan and bold velvets, displaying a strong association with the Seventies – a trend that has filtered into interiors from the world of fashion.

So what pieces caught our eye in Cologne?

Staying in is the new going out so why not do both?
This year B&B Italia reconfirmed the importance of good design when it comes to our outdoor spaces. Gio, designed by Antonio Citterio, is a new outdoor collection with a contemporary classic look dedicated to living in the open air. From the special teak finish in antique grey, which gives the wood a particular lived-in aspect to the accent orange webbing, this range has the same style, quality and comfort as the indoor collections which B&B Italia have brought to us during their 50 year history.

‘Plumy – comfort with a capital C and relaxation with a capital R.
This year we saw the reissue of an ‘iconic’ Ligne Roset sofa called Plumy. At first glance, we thought it may have been a new addition to the collection with its trendy design and new levels of comfort but we were mistaken, this sofa is an Eighties baby that hasn’t aged a bit!
Not only were we impressed by the aesthetics of the piece, the option of angling the back cushions and unfolding the seat cushions made it possible to create a chaise lounge position – retro relaxation at its finest!

Multi-Lite embraces the golden era of Danish design
With its characteristic shape of two opposing mobile outer shades, Multi-Lite enables you to create your own personal installation with a wide range of lighting options. By individually rotating the shades, the Multi-Lite Pendant Lamp can be transformed into multiple combinations where the light can be directed upwards, downwards or exude an asymmetrical art light. This light is perfect for those who get easily bored and like to keep reinventing their space.

Liven up your living space with clashing colours and vibrant patterns
The Webby benches with their frames in solid walnut and buttoned seats allow you to experiment with bold and brash colour clashes (another fashion trend which will make its mark on interiors this year). These statement pieces look particularly effective when selecting contrasting buttons.

A new dining table design which doesn’t lose sight of the past
With table 1060, Thonet have managed to design a modern piece of furniture that unifies the three themes of living, working and the brand’s 200 year heritage.
Designer Jorre van Ast comments “It was a special challenge to design something new and, at the same time, to not lose sight of the company’s past. During the development process, it was therefore obvious to concentrate on one of Thonet’s key competencies: bending solid wood. It was my intention to design a companion for the fantastic Thonet chairs.” We think the table is a massive success, blending the company’s proud bentwood tradition with a new lightweight, contemporary design, perfect for both dining rooms and working environments.

Vitra Lounge Chair & Ottoman – new Beauty versions

Lounge Chair Ottoman Occasional Table LTR Eames Plastic Armchair RAR Metal Wall Relief Sun Wiggle Stool Cat & Dog small_1102471_preview

New colour combinations for the Lounge Chair

The Eames Lounge Chair is one of Vitra‘s most prized and prestigious icons. In order to do justice to its classic character, Vitra have so far offered it in a small number of tailored versions: classic, white and black.

In 2014 Vitra added 11 new colours to their leather collection in partnership with Hella Jongerius and they can now offer 22 premium leather colours.

Vitra are now applying part of this selection to new versions of the Lounge Chair: offering various combinations of premium leather colours, wood veneers and base frames. The Beauty versions were also defined in partnership with the Dutch designer.

This extension of the Lounge Chair range opens up a new horizon and creates more opportunities for you when designing your interiors. The new compositions allow personal tastes to be met much more individually, while the selection – appropriate to the status of this iconic product – remains limited to defined and carefully curated models. In some of the new combinations of leathers and woods the base frame variant can be selected; in others it is fixed. And naturally all these configurations are available in both the classic and the new sizes.

For further product information and prices, please contact our Design Team who would be delighted to help you.
