Imm Cologne 2017: Functional Luxury Furniture
At this year’s Imm Cologne furniture fair (January 16-22), luxury manufacturers are turning their attention to the needs of affluent urban dwellers – resulting in modular and highly functional pieces suitable for smaller living spaces.
- Recline & Relax: German luxury label Rolf Benz launched two new ranges of functional relaxation sofas, with side components, backrests and headrests that fold down in different directions for a multitude of seating options. The Agio series is contemporary and compact, with elaborately stitched-through upholstery, while the slender Mera modules, available in fabric or leather, enable numerous compositions.
- Social Sofa: Known for its bespoke interiors and high-quality furniture, Dutch design studio Piet Boon presented the sumptuous modular couch Bo. The rounded L-shaped units can be arranged into an intimate closed setting or positioned to create an open, S-shaped seating area for mingling – making it a suitable option for the hospitality industry.
