"Das Haus": living by moods creates an appetite for open-plan homes

Room to breathe, a space for action, a place for small escapes and a den for sleeping half hidden behind rotatable panels: this is what “Das Haus” by Studio Truly Truly presented at the international interiors show imm cologne 2019, ended last weekend. Australian designers Kate and Joel Booy demonstrated their self-confidence and artistic sensitivity in their take on a residential home for the design event with a strong tradition: their open-plan living concept created a stunning sight with its strong colours, fine details and well-proportioned open spaces. It was a “Haus” with nothing superfluous that did not illustrate their concept of “living by moods”, and yet their design was far from being stark or cool.

The design duo’s love of the materials that they work with was clear in their vision. Glass and wool, wood and metal were bathed in the unique lighting that Studio Truly Truly skilfully staged with a further development of the Typography Lighting System (Rakumba). The materials exuded a charm that visitors could not resist. They didn’t just take photographs; they felt, patted and stroked. “Das Haus” may have been made from the finest materials, but it was still a blueprint of a home that visitors could behold, try out and touch. However you feel, this is living by moods.
