The carefully groomed pitch where the professional footballers of 1. FC Köln play their Bundesliga games, the sacred halls attended by concert and church goers and the temple of learning where diligent students bend their heads over their work: these are the places where the design fans from Cologne boldly staged the new sofas, chairs, tables and refrigerators of the 2015 season.
