About Design Post

In our monumental building in Cologne, Design Post functions as an open network of brands and design professionals in the interior design industry. We empower both brands and established and emerging design professionals with the tools, knowledge and networks they need to connect, collaborate and generate business.

We are proud of our role in initiating many project collaborations through encounters at Design Post. Our ambition is to further strengthen our position as a frontier for the industry - be it as catalyst or moderator.

At Design Post, our aim is simple: to act as a generous catalyst.

  • Design Post is located directly opposite the Messe Köln exhibition centre. It’s a convenient place for brands, architects, interior designers, decision-makers and specialised retailers to showcase their creations, meet each other and work together. 

  • Currently, 34 prominent design companies from seven countries present their installations over more than 3,500 m2 of floor space. 

  • As an independent showroom, run by a team of experts with extensive backgrounds in the interior design industry, we offer tailored advice.

  • We foster a flourishing global professional community of 3000 - plus stakeholders - and counting.

Design Post was co-founded by Dutch designer Willem van Ast, the former director of family-owned furniture brand Arco, supported by a knowledgeable team of German experts. From the start, a special culture combining German Gründlichkeit (thoroughness) and Dutch openness has been able to flourish.            

Are you interested in becoming a partner? Would you like to present yourself alongside the best companies in the industry?

We look forward to meeting you!
