Todd Bracher’s Das Haus Imagines a Home That Balances “Mind, Body and Soul”
January 2017On the floor at German furniture fair imm Cologne, David Dick-Agnew speaks to the New York industrial designer about his interpretation of Das Haus, the annual installation focused on the future of domestic space. The Das Haus installation is an annual highlight of imm Cologne, the high-end residential furniture fair held in Germany. As its name suggest, Das Haus is an opportunity for a design studio to explore new possibilities for residential design. Each year, the chosen designer sets out to tap into the zeitgeist – as with Sebastian Herkner’s open and hospitable edition last year, which seemed to anticipate rising anti-immigration sentiment, or Louise Campbell’s version in 2014, which expressed the growing trend towards nesting and hygge.
