Welcome to the White House
At imm 2012 we welcome the United Living Nations. Wander through our White House, experience international living culture.
Our guests come from all continents. They are cosmopolitans, yet they live their own style, preferably in white. At the International Furniture Show in Cologne from 16 to 22 January we are dedicating a passing paradise to the United Living Nations of the year 2012. (Planning: büro Kräling_Lübke; styling: Irina Graewe.) Perhaps the best souvenir? You can take all the furnishing concepts back home with you, because the furniture brand from East Westphalia is represented in …. countries.
A new living feeling: white
The white, almost floating fabric shell that enfolds the building shines far and wide. The spacious entrance area is occupied by a futuristic presentation of the modular programme "bookless" – a gallery system for living, to provide the right framework for the most beautiful things in our lives. Whether it be digital media, collected precious objects or favourite pictures. Emotional showcase is the name we have given to the type case for the 21st century.
Multidimensional (wardrobe system 40S, dividing wall systems)
What if a bedroom were also to become a living room and a walk-in cupboard and were even to incorporate the wardrobe and wellness area? What if wardrobes could be opened from both sides or themselves arranged as room dividers? Open your eyes and your wish has become reality – and so beautiful that the words "new wall unit concepts" hardly do justice as a description.
Unconventional (shelving system studimo, cabinet system cubex)
Monotony is foreign to you? You prefer not to commit yourself when it comes to style and trends? We offer flexibly usable living concepts for people who do not tie themselves down for all eternity, but like to create something different every day – with the same furniture. A shelving or cabinet system does not have to be a "wall". Floor plans can be adopted without a trace of severity, and you can realise your own ideas with imaginative arrangements.
Individual (gallery system bookless, room divider)
Who says that a private lounge cannot become a life model? Elegant room dividers are replacing the classic screens, enabling you to pursue your interests discreetly. Live your preferences – openly or privately. Our individually usable furnishing concept permits you every freedom: to immerse yourself, completely secluded, in floating cinema worlds, then a moment later to enjoy dinner with friends. Or would you prefer to watch another film?
Luxurious (wardrobe system S07)
Does the President's Suite represent the centre of power? At interlübke it is a bedchamber fitted with all refinements, a place whose luxurious, stylish comfort quite simply forbids the word "room" for reasons of political correctness. This living style has a clear message: we do not live according to standards, we set them; to the point of creating a walk-in wardrobe room that differently-minded people would simply use as a living room.
Lively (shelving system studimo)
A playground for family life, surrounded by all our loved ones? Fathers, mothers, children, friends… Ideally, you bring the different people and interests together in one living concept and call the whole thing the central point of your life. For watching television, reading, playing, painting, listening to music. Everything you need is in easy reach – and can be made to disappear just as quickly when important visitors, e.g. the parents-in-law, are expected.
Harmonious (floating door wardrobe, cabinet system cube)
How do you create your own realm? Some people love peace and quiet, preferring thinking to running around. They have their own living philosophy that requires harmony and a contemplative space. For these people we have developed our new floating door wardrobe. The reclining zone has been designed as an island. A little secret: the bed does not stand against the wall, but is screened by a cabinet system that can be opened from both sides.
For experts and trade partners who would like to experience our collection once again in its pure, unadulterated form, we have set up a small additional exhibition. The exhibits speak for themselves: bookless, S07, cube, sipario and reef. Regard them as ambassadors that will soon be represented at every exhibition – in every country all over the world.
