Passagen 2008 Cologne
PASSAGEN 2008 – 14 to 20 January 2008 The time is approaching: From 14 to 20 January 2008 Germany’s biggest design event will take place in Cologne. The PASSAGEN festival opens the international design season and provides a platform for current trends in design, lifestyle and home living. For an entire week, Cologne becomes a temporary design metropolis – a Mecca for design-hungry and design tourists and a meeting place for design professionals and the international design scene.
The programme with over 150 shows by international designers and manufacturers, densely arranged along a trail encompassing the entire city of Cologne – a veritable “Who’s Who” of the design scene. There will be thrilling moments, brand-new concepts, designers “up close and personal”, inspiration and ideas for home and office, top-flight trends and stylistic tendencies – it’s all about design, one hundred percent. The focus is on evocative exhibits, presented both by premium high-end manufacturers and by young designers and networks, using experimental concepts in that electrifying place where design and architecture meet.
Just around the corner our designspotter offices, on Bismarckstrasse, the internationally renowned magazine Architektur & Wohnen will present the 12th annual A&W Designer of the Year with a special exhibit. The 2008 Designer of the Year is Tom Dixon, born in 1959 in Tunisia and currently living and working in London, who was selected in honour of his creative efforts to make design, style and aesthetics more accessible to a broad audience.
The PASSAGEN festival was founded in 1990 by Sabine Voggenreiter and is taking place for the 19th time in 2008.
