Moormann’s shed goes to Cologne

| 1 comment


Just for fun, here is a sequence showing designer Nils Holger Moormann's multi-purpose Walden shed on its way to the Stylepark in Residence show in Cologne (plus a few images of the show).


Walden, designed for German shed and wooden house manufacturer Aicher, is a wooden box containing everything you might ever need in the garden, including seating, a barbecue and a bird feeder plus a seating area and storage for wheelbarrows and the like.


Walden is inspired by 19th century American writer Henry David Thoreau's short story Walden, or Life in the Woods, about life in harmony with nature.


Stylepark was this year held at the Kölnischer Kunstverein in Cologne and ran concurrently with the IMM Cologne furniture fair from 15-21 January.


Below are a couple of images of the Design Annual exhibition at Stylepark, plus one of Patricia Urquiola's installation (last image).
