IMM Cologne: Pure Talents Contest with more than 1,000 submissions
The 20th edition of the IMM Cologne Pure Talents Contest for the next generation of designers attracted an exceptionally high number of applicants: with 1165 entries, 893 designers from 76 countries competed for the coveted exhibition spaces. In accordance with the competition’s new concept, the jury of five international designers evaluated the “Objects” (products) and “Spaces” (interior design concepts) submitted in the three categories: “lifestyle and home living in cities with limited space”, “lifestyle and home living in a circular society” and “lifestyle and home living as a statement/message/concept”. Twelve nominees were shortlisted from these entries and given the opportunity to present their work to the international interior design world.
One special feature of the anniversary event is the jury itself, since all five jury members were in fact nominees in the Pure Talents Contest (previously titled “D3”) between 2004 and 2015. The Pure Talents Contest awards presentation will take place at the exhibition in Hall 4 At 3:00 p.m. on 14 January 2024.Carpet Home-Newsletter: Click here for free newsletter subscription
