Each year,Imm Cologneinvites emerging designers to create a Das Haus pavilion, a full-sized home reflecting on contemporary lifestyle. In 2020, Spanish studio MUT Designhas created A la Fresca, an interior design project inspired by simple geometric shapes and the sun-drenched landscape and nature of their home town Valencia.
Reminiscent of a classical pavilion, the square ground area is dissected by convex wall panels and dissolves into four round rooms styled with minimalist furnishings that are arranged around a central residual space and completely open outwards. In Spanish homes, life revolves around the patio, a hybrid space connecting indoor and outdoor, a shaded inner courtyard at the core of Mediterranean architecture.
A la frescareflects such lifestyle and features quality garden furniture by MUT. A series of new products were developed for pavilion including a hammock, an outdoor rug and a room divider by GAN, a rattan chair by Expormim or a chair by Diabla.
