In 2008 Arper brought its first showroom to Germany with the opening of its permanent exhibition in the Design Post in Cologne. Spanning over 200 square meters and two levels, Arper’s space at the Design Post highlights the colorful and rich diversity of its product line while showing off a wide array of furniture configurations suited for both residential and contract use.
The Design Post is housed inside of the architecturally unique Dreigelenkbogenhalle (three-joint arcade hall) that was formerly a post office in the district of Deutz in Cologne. Built between 1910 and 1914, the historic building served as a postal railway station up until the 1990s.
After an extensive renovation and remodeling by the Dutch architectural firm O III in 2005, the Design Post first opened its doors in 2006 offering an exhibition space to over 35 internationally renowned furniture and design brands. Arper has maintained a presence at the Design Post since 2008.
The Design Post regularly runs programs parallel to trade shows such as the imm Cologne and Orgatec at the nearby Cologne Exhibition Centre. This month the Design Post will hold a program during the imm cologne from 14th to 20th January 2013 where Arper will present its collection to convention attendees.
