This year’s Das Haus installation enhances the international furniture fair imm cologne with an aspect that a lot of people find highly appealing: the idea of living “in between” – between architecture and nature, indoors and outside.

The sanitaryware – a bowl-shaped bathtub and a washbasin reminiscent of a fountain basin (self-produced in collaboration with Mabello) – goes by the name of Eclipse and is combined with a new clothes stand that doubles as a room divider for the Nudo collection (Ex.t).

Here in the Cleanness Area, the fusion of architecture and furnishings, indoors and outdoors is particularly striking.

Das Haus (imm cologne 2020): Spanish team MUT Design is creating an architecture that opens up to the outdoors, equipped with furniture that crosses the usual line between interior and exterior spaces.

“We pictured a space where you can focus without being influenced by anything, a space that doesn’t bombard you with stimuli so that you can retreat into yourself,” say the Spanish designers Alberto Sánchez (left) and Eduardo Villalón. “Because if you feel the urge to retreat, you ought to be able to do it properly.”

With the title “A la fresca” – “Step out into the fresh air!” – the Spaniards are alluding to the culture of evening get-togethers in the streets and squares that’s still practised in village communities.

Contact with nature helps us to relax – a function of the home that’s becoming increasingly importance as we face growing challenges in terms of work commitments, overstimulation and mobility.

In the 2020 edition of Das Haus, some of the furnishings become part of the architecture – like a masonry bench that grows out of the whitewashed walls or a gangway that draws the gaze into the distance.

As the guest of honour that imm cologne has invited to create its 2020 installation for the Das Haus series, Spanish design team MUT Design is presenting a visionary interior concept that explores the removal of boundaries between interior spaces and their opening up to nature – exclusively furnished for a life of both/and instead of either/or.

Das Haus 2020 is reminiscent of a classical pavilion: formed from the combination of a circle and a square, styled with minimalist furnishings, open on all sides. It’s an example of ideal architecture, perfect for a house nestled within the Albufera. The colours of this breathtaking lagoon landscape were an inspiration for Alberto Sánchez and Eduardo Villalón – who founded MUT Design ten years ago – in their selection of materials and harmonious colour schemes for their vision of home living for imm cologne 2020.

Modern architecture not only seeks to create flowing transitions between indoors and outdoors; it designs fluid, multifunctional spaces in which furniture can assume highly diverse possibilities for use and form zones. This “loft” concept ensures expansiveness even on a small scale. A contemporary living space must be open to individual and changing functions.

High-quality tables, chairs, pouffes and rugs – all suitable for outdoor use – occupy the four spaces that open concavely outwards: an outdoor cooking station serves as the barbecue-ready kitchen.

The Bow ceramic wall tiles (Harmony) have also been created for Das Haus and mediate between the architecture and interior: inspired by the typical structures and roofing seen in Spanish towns, they evoke classic roof tiles but are concave rather than convex, giving interior walls and facades an expansive, modern but nevertheless familiar look.

The front entryway features a tall archway with a Porta Romana chandelier as the centerpiece. The path following leads through the courtyard to arrive at the front door. The archway motif, used throughout the home, was inspired by the streets of urban Italy that feature unique entryways to courtyards and piazzas.

The pool and water feature align along the length of the backyard. A Carol Feuerman sculpture is highlighted by the reflective surfaces and cascading water wall behind it, reminiscent of Mies Van Der Rohe's use of sculpture in the Barcelona Pavillion. Cypress trees are used throughout the landscaping inspired by the Tuscan countryside.
