IMM Cologne 2016 : Japanese minimalism inspired Baxter


For IMM Cologne 2016, Baxter introduced an essential architecture that blended the upholstered furniture inspired in Japanese minimalism. A very essential and linear structure, it draws inspiration from the minimalist aesthetics promoted by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Carried out through the use of big blocks of concrete at sight, that recall a sensation of materiality, this architecture composes a frame which guards marked references, placed in the various rooms.

The colours of upholstered furniture are dull, soft and warm, intentionally desaturated but at the same time with a strong character. That’s how an ashen blue, a mastic pink and a sand colour of soft leathers are matched with green and grey shades that characterize polished leathers.

In this way, leather nuances are emphasized and enhanced through combinations with neutral materials, where raw material becomes main character. The rough concrete and the burnt wood of small tables, the lamps  brass, the linen and the wool of rugs coexist, creating an overall vision among colours, matter and design.

Inspiration source for the carrying out of references rich in colours and in natural materials is a recall to tribal art, that has contributed to the reassessment of Berber rugs, both in terms of geometric shapes and in terms of colour shades; a mix between modern techniques and local materials typical of tradition.
