imm cologne will set the spotlight on decorative and technical lighting.

She will have a free hand in demonstrating her special talent for designing lighting fixtures and creating captivating lighting effects when she interprets the approximately 180-square-metre ephemeral structure in Hall 3.2. And Featured Editions, the special exhibition format at Pure Editions, in which exhibitors and creatives work together to turn products into extraordinary objects, has also embraced the "light" theme for next year's event. On around ten sites spread between Halls 2.2 and 3.2, a wide variety of lighting installations will fill the tent-like lighting fixtures that form the transparent structure for Featured Editions 2018. Alongside the product presentations and design events, a special programme of talks on a broad range of subjects relating to light will provide architects, interior designers and end users with additional information and inspiration.

At imm cologne 2018, the subject of light will be illuminated from two key perspectives: firstly, decorative light in its most varied forms and lighting-fixture designs and, secondly, technical lighting with complex and easily controllable lighting solutions. Pure Architects is transforming itself into the home of technical lighting. LEDs, integrated lighting systems, lighting technology, lighting design, architectural lighting - the subject takes on a whole new dimension in the new-look Hall 4.2. The intelligent and efficient control of light sources via apps is just one topic waiting to be discovered in the smart homes segment.
