Multiple European brands came together for MUT Design's Das Haus installation at IMM Cologne to create hybrid indoor-outdoor furniture prototypes that are now being put into production.
Each year, the Das Haus installation showcases one designer or design studio's take on the present and future direction of interior design. For the 2020 edition in January, MUT Design focused on blurring the line between exterior and interior, and between architecture and nature, with a project titled A La Fresca! (Step Out into the Fresh Air!). The studio wanted to do more than just adapt interior design for outdoor use or vice versa; they wanted to explore how home life might change if these boundaries were eased or eliminated entirely. To that end, their space has five living zones – an Active Area, Cleanness Area, Resting Area, Kitchen and Patio. "We don't separate outdoor and living room furniture according to the usual norms," said the studio.

CF Møller Architects reveals Sweden's tallest timber building. CF Møller Architects has revealed photos of the Kajstaden Tall Timber Building, which has recently completed in the city of Västerås and is Sweden's tallest timber building.
Completed in 2019, the 8.5-storey-high apartment block has a structure built entirely with cross-laminated timber, and secured with mechanical screws that ensure it can be taken apart and reused. CF Møller Architects chose to use cross-laminated timber for the scheme as it is renewable, recyclable and has a lower carbon footprint than other traditional building materials like concrete. Wooden buildings are also believed to improve wellbeing of occupants when in use. The studio hopes that the structure will become "a landmark for the area and a benchmark for a sustainable future". "The total carbon-dioxide savings from use of solid wood instead of concrete are estimated at 550 tonnes of CO2 over the building's life," explained Rob Marsh, the studio's sustainability manager.
