„Yura Yura“ Kind & Jugend 2004, Köln / Trade fair stand

The trade fair stand is completely constructed of materials that occur in the company’s product range or which they process to make them with. “Nest”, “being protected” and “rocking to sleep” can be associated directly with it. With “Yura Yura” – the rocking motion in Japanese – Zöllner takes the visitor into the soft and gentle world of the baby’s and children’s article manufacturer. The almost 5 metre high framework of the trade fair stand is a paper silhouette that provides protection but does not cut one off, it rustles but still radiates peace. The floor covering is entirely of coconut matting. The presentation tables of timber stand on numerous flexible legs that sway gently when one touches them. The lounge-like business area shows that Zöllner produces for the world of children, but at an order trade fair he still wants to talk to sales people.
