    IMM Cologne: Seven Super Storage Solutions

    Showroom Finland


    1. Showroom Finland
    Kasaa shelving, designed by Teemu Jarvi, is made from recycled cardboard. The material is sturdy, but lightweight, and water-based adhesives are used in its construction. The system is modular, has just two component pieces and doesn’t need any glue. showroomfinland.fi Müller Mobelfabrikation


    2. Müller Mobelfabrikation
    The steel furniture specialist introduced a clever piece that looks like a sleek side table, but opens to reveal a desk. With the PS 08, you can use your laptop while sitting on the sofa, bed or lounge. It also has a storage compartment and a built-in drawer. The design is from Lippert Studios. mueller-moebel.com Mueller Moebel


    3. Mueller Moebel
    A different company named Mueller also specializes in storage and home office accessories. Its outstanding entry in Cologne was Flatmate. The design, by Michael Hilgers, folds up to take up almost no space in someone’s small apartment—or flat. It comes with a desk light and is available in a range of bright colors. muellermoebel.de




    4. Ligne Roset
    In a stroke of genius, Ligne Roset introduced what every woman pines for: an armoire dedicated to shoes. Sleek and sophisticated, the piece, designed by young German Blasius Osko, will undoubtedly earn pride of place in the homes of all Manolo addicts. ligne-roset-usa.com

    Montis
    5. Montis
    Someone, somewhere, decreed that furniture has to work harder. One of the most charming outcomes of this edict, Edam, by Gert Batenburg for Montis, turns an ottoman into a clever piece of storage and does it with great wit, by slicing off part of the ottoman’s diameter and adding not only a drawer, but pockets for remotes, phones and/or papers. montis.nl Kristalia


    6. Kristalia
    SheLLf by young Netherlands-based La-Lai Chan started out as a limited edition studio piece, but the resourceful Italian company Kristalia figured out how to put it into production, A combination of differently sized rectangular units, it’s made of MDF with a lacquer finish and is currently is available in two configurations. live.kristalia.it Molteni Fortepiano


    7. Molteni
    Off the fairgrounds, Molteni introduced Fortepiano, an endlessly versatile storage system by consummate pro, Rodolfo Dordoni. It has three basic components and two types of containers all in an 11 inch modular width and comes in a range of colors. molteni.it
