This year the IMM Cologne made the attempt to bridge between fine arts and interior design and therefore invited Rotterdam based Atelier van Lieshout - a wanderer between the worlds of art and design. A broad overview of Joep van Lieshouts work is presented, containing plans, drawings, sculptures and installations from the early 80s to contemporary works. A successful exhibition that really sticks out, appearing unexpectedly between the predominantly slick furniture in the fair - more of it, please!

Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
