  New collections from EMKO at imm Cologne  
 
EMKO starts 2018 with participation at imm Cologne in Germany from January 15 to 21. In Hall 3.1 at booth C35, visitors will see a display of new products with some old favourites.


Some of the highlights are:

Aye Aye! candle holders


Aye Aye! – created by etc.etc. design studio – is a fleet of rugged, round and bold iron cast candle holders inspired by the time of adventure and discovery, when the enthusiasm of the Industrial Revolution revealed the world to travellers and fortune seekers.


The fleet is composed of four sizes – from a small tugboat with one funnel to a hefty steamship with four big ones. All navy-themed colours are available: red, blue, black and grey. Each funnel is designed to fit either a tea-light candle for cosy harbour light or a taper candle as a pillar of steam.


Aye Aye! vessels can be combined in any size and number and create various themes that will be easy to adjust to different happenings and backgrounds. One narrow piece will look pleasant on a window sill and distract the solitude. Aligned in a row the pieces will resemble a naval fleet, lighting a fire within. Scattered on a dining table the vessels will seem to sail into an archipelago of plates sparkling good mood for conversation. Because of its shape and mental connections Aye Aye! family feels dynamic although it doesn’t float allowing for any composition, let it be carefully made or left over from last night.


Drawing its inspiration from Industrial Revolution the Aye Aye! family is iron cast and powder coated for its colours. Additional space around the candles acts as an extra safe-zone. Being iron cased the vessels are quite heavy, therefore, stable and hard to flip. Each vessel is sturdy as a rock and a bold design item yet simple enough not to become distracting.


SUNrise/SUNset wall lamp


Life as we know it is a revolving cycle around the Sun. Since the dawn of time, the Sun’s stages shaped the way we interact with the world around us. The skies have become a mirror to humans’ ancestral ways, tied to our well-being, our emotional balance and everyday life activities. Crisp bright blue mornings followed by the red-orange-purple of the sunsets give us energy and joy. On the other hand, a few days of grey cloudy skies or months of short winter days and our mood begins to shift. It doesn’t take much to feel under the weather.


Add to that the modern life style, which has slowly pulled us away from the Sun’s natural cycles as we have moved our activities towards the indoors, inside closed spaces which have shut off our contact with the elements, and our longing for the natural benefits of the Sun increased.


Created during the dark Lithuanian winters comes “SUN-rise/-set”, a lamp that puts the Sun’s colours in the palm of your hand. Winner of the International exhibition Furniture 2012 from Vilnius and the Red Dot Design Concept Award in 2014, this interactive object gives its user the possibility of choosing the right colour palette to suit the desired mood effect according to the moment of the day or personal preference, by gently sliding the light source over the coloured panel. It brings the vibrant and refreshing coolness of bright mornings inside your office or the warmth of cosy evenings to your living room.


Other attractions to be showcased will include: Naïve Low Chair, Pill wall cabinet, My Writing Desk, and many more.
