Lounge @ Innovation of Interior 2011

>> Lounge meets amorphous form << 


During the interzum 2011 the ioi (innovation of interior) took place in hall 4.2 as a  specialist-forum. It is a pooling of many innovative exhibitors at the Interzum and is organised by Koelnmesse. The ioi directly addresses architects, interior architects, designers and developers for furnishings. This year it took place for the second time after 2009 and with a new design concept focused on innovative technologies and materials. The forum invites to communicate on the same level in an inspiring ambience.


Muellermusic was entrusted by the Creativteam of Koelnmesse – besides the diverse classical tasks – with the special challenge to technically equip the communicative center of the ioi as an inviting and inspiring lounge. The “tricky” task that Marlies Suesterhenn set us, was to separate the comfortable Lounge area from the lecture stage (for an audience up to 100) in a way that at the same time the whole area could host the 300 guests of the Interior Designer Day.


The fotos on the right show our implementation. With a well thought out system of curtains we separated the lounge from the stage – yet the whole area could be used quickly for 300 guests. We transferred the innovative forms of the lounge to an amorphous truss construction and – as is usual – presented it in the proper light.


If you have any further questions or need specific information, our project manager Michael Grundmann  will be glad to receive your email.
