    Das Haus 2017: The Essence of Living

    Contrary to the previous year’s Das Haus demonstration of sensual indulgence by Sebastian Herkner, U.S. designer Todd Bracher settled with the essentials for his “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage,” provoking visitors to wonder what’s actually needed to live.

    Instead of representing the traditional home, Bracher developed a three-zone apartment: A provisions room, a room of peace and retreat and a hygiene room.
    Semi-transparent fabric by Création Baumann covered the two narrow entrances to the black, hermetic cube construction. Inside the provisions room, framed with shelves, were the necessities. The floor, shelves and walls were covered with Douglas planks by Dinesen. Caesarstone fabricated a quartz worktop for the 7-meter-long kitchen island using its “sleek concrete” shade, accompanied by Todd Bracher’s Alodia stools by Cappellini and a row of his Dome lamps by Mater.

    Visitors left the bright and friendly ambiance to enter the peace room through a dark corridor. The wooden walls seemed to grow black as they transitioned from one space to the next and visitors found themselves in a dark, noiseless room, only dimly lit by a moon-like shimmering paper ball, a special design by the Italian lamp manufacturer Davide Groppi.
