Review – favius at imm cologne 2020

At the imm cologne 2020 favius presented two striking novelties: A hand-blown table light FLAKES by Hanne Willmann as well as a side and coffee table SEDIMENT by Studio Besau-Marguerre. Both novelties underline the design brand’s philosophy: the dedication to traditional craftsmanship as well as a design language, which moves between art and architecture.

Also, the open and architectural exhibition design by Studio Besau-Marguerre takes up favius’ philosophy. The interdisciplinary design office structures the favius stand with its four open sides with the use of ceiling high curtains that are printed on both sides with spatial motifs into the areas new releases, living, sales and shop presentation. The two colours cognac and dark green, which are used on the curtains and pedestals, create two elegant colour worlds. These help to transport a sophisticated atmosphere and lend the stand an abstract spatial structure. A clear focus is put on the novelties which are staged on pedestals as a presentation area. The curtains as well as the use of pedestals in different heights create intriguing perspectives and offer an exciting stage for the strong favius collection.
