Design Post, in Cologne, is not quite an event. In fact, it is a permanent showroom, which comes alive at certain, particularly representative trade fairs. Design Post is located at Deutz-Mülheimer-Strasse 22a in Cologne, so exactly opposite the halls of Koelnmesse. This is a forward-looking location that allows companies to have a permanent showroom, and attract trade fair visitors to the adjacent halls. In addition, Design Post, carved out of a Post Office building, is a particularly striking and attractive location with post-industrial architecture.
