At imm Cologne 2013, Luca Nichetto was the first Italian designer to carry our the project "Das Haus-Interiors on Stage", where the designer presents his vision of a house of the future. 

For this project, Nichetto drew his inspiration from modernist architecture in California, works of Japanese masters and the buildings of Carlo Scarpa. In all these works nature and architecture are intertwined. Pursuing his interest in sustainable design, Nichetto compares his "Das Haus" with a small planet, where the living room becomes as important as the Amazon rainforest is for the Earth. The house is almost entirely made up of semi-enclosed walls and large windows, to emphasize the concept of merging the "inside" with the "outside".
