The beginning of the year is heralded by several of the most important events on the design calendar and IMM Cologne is the first cab off the busy rank, setting furniture trends that will be shaping interiors sector. IMM Cologne 2017 will take place in Cologne, Germany from 16 to 22 of January, so we decided to collect some highlight products of the previous editions.
Palo Sofa by Hem Design Studio
Hem is the first global, vertically integrated, online design studio, offering original, high quality modern designs, with mass customisation options and easy assembly solutions, in a consumer direct model, at affordable prices for everyday consumers.
The design studio created the modular Palo Sofa that blew everyone’s mind on imm cologne 2015. The innovative frame is outfitted with removable struts letting you rearrange the components at a moment’s notice. With a single-seater, a two-seater, a corner sofa, and an ottoman, you can mix and match the minimalist pieces to your liking.
The various components can be added, removed, or rearranged whenever your circumstances change. If you only have space for a two-seater sofa now but move later, the system allows you to purchase other pieces at any time.
