‘das haus’ challenge at imm cologne 2015: Neri&hu architects and Dinesen

imm cologne is ON already! This year the fair was looking forward to get a creative view from outside of europe in order to realize its annual feature ‘das haus’.

Architects neri&hu, from Shangai, accepted the challenge: they developed a home vision that utilizes the fine wood products of dinesen, a flooring company.

In words of Dick Spierenburg, creative director of imm cologne 2015, the decision to invite neri&hu as guests of honour for 2015 was made because “with neri&hu, we have found a pair of architects who have long been experimenting with giving the buildings they design their own characteristic inner dimension, by filling it with furniture and fixtures they design themselves, and it’s in a way which we find really inspiring: atmospheric and pared down at the same time, with refined details and twists.”

Neri&hu project is a 240 m2 large house with a bridge. This elevated walkway “guides people through ‘das haus’ in a way that offers curated views of the various rooms, providing a renewed perspective on architecture, design and living.”

Neri&hu’s contribution to the ‘das haus’ feature is considered a portrait of themselves but also a practical, workable and of above all authentic concept.
