'Home is where the heart is'. COR at IMM Cologne
14/01/2019 - COR presents at IMM Cologne an intimate hemispheres for contemporary interiors. The immediate focus here is on the new creations of the premium brand: Metrica‘s Avalanche sofa, which is versatile, elegant and finely functional, and Jehs+Laub‘s Alvo upholstered chair, which is as modern as it is comfortable, are the highlights of the artistically arranged overall exhibition. Similar to a gallery, some of the exhibits, including Alvo, are also presented as serigraphs.
 
Fabulously flexible
Ready for some splendid isolation? The Avalanche sofa range represents new developments in interior design, living more in zones than in defined spaces, as both a centrepiece and an invitation to be transformed again and again – according to the situational needs of its owners. Sitting upright, having conversations, leaning back comfortably or stretching out for a prolonged period to read or relax - comfortable possible uses that the Metrica designers had in mind for Avalanche: „A more than beautiful sofa, voluminous with an elegant silhouette, the technical refinements remaining invisible,“ explains Robin Rizzini. The open-base furniture combines lavish upholstered surfaces with a delicately upholstered frame and rests on a solid substructure that is light in appearance. Avalanche sofas are available in widths from 175 to 235 cm with a seat depth of 100 cm.

The slightly hollowed backrest upholstery is additionally reinforced in the lumbar area and can be tilted and raised effortlessly. In the high-back position, Avalanche provides comfortable, gently reclined seating with additional support for the head and shoulder areas while gently shielding its owner from the outside world. Swivelling, delicately worked solid wood serves as a shelf or tray, even as a backrest; those wishing to assume a horizontal position simply change the angle of inclination. Now add a cushion and the sofa becomes a daybed, with the head and shoulder areas receiving additional support. Various loose cushions and upholstery rolls in individual groups, a beautifully shaped stool or pouf increase comfort in any desired sitting or reclining position. As a special easy chair model for people who like to be close to one another, the „Love Chair“ surprises with a width of 105 cm. It looks equally impressive on its own as a favourite spot for contemplation. Naturally, both can also be enjoyed in the smaller easy chair version. Design: Metrica, Milan.

A tour de force in plastic: the Alvo chair
A chair that works formally and ergonomically requires an ingenious idea, high seating comfort and excellent workmanship – all characteristics of the new Alvo design by Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub. With its delicate plastic shell, into which a luxuriant cushion with differently filled chambers is inserted as a cushion for seat, back and arm surfaces, Alvo not only renews the image of the chair as „occasional“ furniture: it is a modern eye-catcher – and uniquely comfortable. For its significant design, COR uses high-quality plastic with gently shimmering surfaces; the desired elasticity could not have been achieved with conventional moulded wood shells. „We then continued to experiment with the lateral recesses in order to achieve a pleasant flexibility in the back area,“ explains Jürgen Laub. Alvo (the association with alvus, Latin for ‚mother‘s lap‘, suggests itself) conveys a feeling of security. Even during longer round-table discussions, its owner should be able to sit softly „bedded“ and completely relaxed. Four frame variants allow flexible use in the living/dining area or in multifunctional zones, including the (home) office. The choice of materials for the substructure includes wire and metal frames, various types of wood with conical legs and a plate base on which the white or black seat shell appears to float. Design: Jehs+Laub, Stuttgart.
 
The modern design classic Sinus (first draft 1976) will appear at imm cologne 2019 with new confi- guration possibilities. The spring steel runners characteristic of easy chairs and stools will in future also be available with a matt shimmering surface (colour: black nickel). To increase seating comfort, softer materials are used for the roll-shaped upholstery. Slight crumpling effects during prolonged „occupation“ are expressly desired. A pleasant side effect for the Cordia Lounge easy chairs, which with their soft down cushions have become a favourite for relaxed sitting since 2016: From now on, the tilt function can also be operated electrically.
