An architectural space without boundaries
MUT Design studio will bring the Mediterranean lifestyle, cheerful, open and social to IMM Cologne with their project “A la fresca”, which means stepping out into the fresh air. A reference to the culture that still persists in the area’s villages of meeting up in the streets and squares of an evening to sit down together with neighbours and friends to enjoy the fresh breeze at leisure.
From January 13rd to 19th, in Hall 3.1, Spanish creatives will host Das Haus 2020.
The serene elegance so characteristic of the Studio’s designers Alberto and Eduardo, full of nuances and details as original as personal, moves to the concept of this project in which spaces lose their boundaries: architecture and nature, interior and exterior, privacy and communal living merge smoothly and balanced, imperceptibly.
The circular outline of their ideal home is framed on a square plane, presenting itself as a formal experiment in which 4 semi-circular sections open to the outside, while the interior is conceived as a private area, ideal for meditation and a quiet retreat. “A la fresca” evolves from the inside towards the outside. Although the centre still appears to be the backbone of the house and is filled with daylight, the actual function of the patio as an integrated open-air space has been relocated to the outside”, explain the organisers.
A careful selection of furniture, materials and a chromatic palette inspired by nature will embellish the spaces, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere to welcome visitors.
And, of course, this project will display some furniture designs signed by the studio. Sancal participates in the project with the well-known Beetle acoustic panel and, also, with a brand-new product named Roll, developed specially for Das Haus, and part of Sancal’s new collection which be launched during the next edition of Milan.
