International Volvo Photo Locations Part 112
Design Post in Köln is a showroom for design aficionados, a boulevard for aesthetes and a source of inspiration for design industry professionals.
Design Post Köln can be found at the Deutz-Mülheimer Straße 22 in 50679 Köln, Germany.
Design Post Köln is right opposite to Köln Messe / Osthallen / entrance East.
Exclusive international interior design brands present their current trends in the historic halls of a former post office in the Deutz quarter of Cologne. Visitors are invited to explore an extensive product range by renowned furniture, lighting and textiles manufacturers. With regularly changing exhibitions, a visit to Design Post is guaranteed to deliver new ideas and inspiration. The products cannot be purchased directly; instead the focus is very much on qualified advice and consulting. This makes Design Post an inspiring place for both end users who want to explore new interior trends in a relaxing environment and for retailers and architects who may come to Design Post with clients and project owners to flesh out their plans.
The seven so-called Dreigelenkbogenhallen (three-joint arcade halls), commissioned by the Post Office and built in 1913, were elaborately modernised with great attention paid to their historical significance and remodelled into a large, bright exhibition building in 2005. Originally a parcel distribution centre, they are located directly opposite the Cologne-Deutz railway station and the trade fair grounds.
Its architectural quality and generous space make this building a monument worthy of preservation. The plan for its renovation and new intended use was developed with great care and inspiration. The architects of the planning office that was subcontracted for the project, O III architecten in Amsterdam, recognised the opportunity to preserve the building: it was a chance to build a space with an extraordinary atmosphere that is ideal for exhibitions and events.
