High satisfaction among Spanish exhibitors at Imm Cologne 2012

Over the last years, IMM COLOGNE has regained its position as one of the main event of the furnishing and contract sector. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as Germany’s economy has grown faster than any other else in the EU, leading to a more confident and optimistic mood in the country. As a result, consumptions have increased significantly turning Germany into the European market with better business opportunities for furniture companies. As far as Spain is concern, its exports of furniture to Germany have increased by 16.5% in the period January to November 2011, amounting to more than 9 million euros.


Among the exhibitors, the Spanish furnishing sector was represented by KETTAL, GANDIA BLASCO and TAGAR, that showcased in Cologne their latest innovative and appealing collections. KETTAL, a worldwide leader in furnishing the outdoor and indoor space of major hotel chains, put on display its new striking VIEQUES collections, designed by Patricia Urquiola. Made of a revolutionary three-dimensional fabric, Nido d’Ape, this modular collection consists of pieces for the living and dining room.


Made of a light aluminum base with a removable fabric cover, the new super-stylish TROPEZ and NORMANDIE sofas from GANDIA BLASCO have been designed with the aim of moving the comfort of modern inside seating outside. Fruit of the collaboration with Stefan Diez, one of Germany’s top-profile designers, the informal-looking and versatile TROPEZ collection is inspired to the fashionable 1920s and 30s sports and is suitable for both architectural and non-architectural landscapes. TAGAR exhibited in the LIVING CONTRACT SPACE, where the Spanish brands showcased the MARIQUITA collection, a set of charming chairs and stool that can be configured in different ways, and the functional CUBICA stool.
