At the 2012 Designers Fair in Cologne product designers Leoni Werle, Christian Kim, Sebastian Hecht and Susanne Salmen, showed their work for the first time together as a group called “Co-Laborat”. They all studied together in Aachen, Germany and are now showing a collection of projects ranging from lamps through stools to tables that each make a reference to the color yellow.
