IMM: A Touching Tales Exhibition with Henrik Vibskov

The International Interiors show not to miss, IMM Cologne ran successfully from January 18 to 24, 2016. This year visitors are talking about the collaborative exhibition “Touching Tales,” put together by Alcantara textiles and Damn° magazine. It stole the show by fusing serene style into the hustling and bustling fair.

The collaboration commissioned four of the freshest design agencies to experiment with Alcantara’s microfibre. Formafantasma, Moritz Waldemeyer, Anton Alvarez, and Henrik Vibskov presented their creativity at the show.

Vibskov concocted “The Science Spooner” installation with its very ‘meditative science lab’ feel. Fifteen cone-shaped vessels suspended from the ceiling “in a grid formation” exemplified Alcantara fabric in dark and medium green tones.

A motorized mechanism enabled the cones to move up and down, allowing their pointed tips to slowly dip into glass containers containing a bit of water. LED lights shine through the perforated cones.

Visitors entered and exited the space through a curtain of green Alcantara that surrounded the rectangular space.
