For imm Cologne, Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi skilfully reimagined Kvadrat’s stand at Design Post Cologne.
Featuring a minimalistic wooden framework that incorporates rows of textilecovered panels on three sides, these panels work like blinds that can be tilted horizontally to reveal glimpses of the interior.
GamFratesi: “The Design Post space is a combination of shared areas and private showrooms. The idea was to create a system that clearly identified Kvadrat from the outside through the use of fabric. The flexible system offers two solutions for different activities: private for meetings and work, or more open during the different events.”
The novelties presented here will be San by Louise Sigvardt, Melange Nap by Akira Minagawa, Instill by Maharam, as well as Mingled Plaid and Segmented Stripe designed by Paul Smith for Maharam.
Another focal point for this winter is a range of new sumptuous rugs from Kvadrat. Silhouette, Glory and Lattice along with a new look at Bravoure, are all crafted by Design Director Hella Jongerius.

STRUCTURES is a unique collaboration between Berlin-based Studio Greiling and Kinnasand LAB to be presented during imm, which explores the experience of rugs and furniture.
Katrin Greiling: “Creating this limited series of furniture for the Kinnasand LAB project, I aimed to bring the textures and richness of the rugs closer to the hands and body, enabling visitors to the Kinnasand stand to experience the character of each individual rug.”
