Louise Campbell at IMM Cologne 2014 | Das Haus’s House of the Future

Das Haus is an annual commission that allows a designer to imagine what their ideal future home would be like. Das Haus – Interiors on Stage is the simulation of a home at the international interior design fair IMM Cologne. Every year, the IMM Cologne nominates a new designer whose plans are then used for the layout and furnishings.

This year’s Das Haus Home of the Future installation at the IMM Cologne fair was created by Copenhagen designer Louise Campbell.

The furniture, colours, materials, lighting and accessories chosen by the Guest of Honour add up to an individually configured interior design. But this holistically conceived proposal isn’t just meant to be forward-looking; it should be practical as well – and above all authentic

A line of beds for sleeping and lounging runs along one side of the space, in front of patterned fabric panels that line the walls.

Campbell modelled the kitchen on a workshop, hanging 573 tools on the white pegboard wall behind the counters.

A 100-year-old stoneware bathtub has been placed in the middle of the living area and an upside-down canoe is balanced in the rafters.

Das Haus is an example of how it is possible to create a world of one’s own that becomes an expression of one’s own personality. Besides picking up on current interior design trends, the project also addresses the public’s aspirations and social change.

Louise Campbell designed a 240-square-metre dwelling devoid of interior walls, with openings at each end rather than doors. “There are no walls dividing the various zones, only soft textiles that can be rolled up or down as desired,” said Campbell.

“There are no secrets and no pressure – the ideal marriage. Perhaps indeed the ideal house,” Campbell said.

“Personally I feel very much at home here,” said Campbell. “Where floral wallpaper in a kitchen would not naturally present itself at the top of my list, plenty of fine tools do. Even so, I’d much rather sleep in an imaginatively decorated space than in a bare white bedroom.”
