GamFratesi 2018 Design Post Cologne

For imm Cologne 2018, Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi skilfully reimagined Kvadrat’s stand at Design Post Cologne. Featuring a minimalistic wooden framework that incorporates rows of textile-covered panels on three sides, these panels work like blinds that can be tilted horizontally to reveal glimpses of the interior. Alternatively, they can be flipped vertically to create a more intimate, closed space.

GamFratesi: “The Design Post space is a combination of shared areas and private showrooms. The idea was to create a system that clearly identified Kvadrat from the outside through the use of fabric. The flexible system offers two solutions for different activities: private for meetings and work, or more open during the different events.”

Colourful textiles and rugs were displayed on a volume at the heart of the stand, between a table and a lounge area. In addition, one wall will unite vibrant combinations of large swatches of fabric.
