When looking at Mike Meire's 'Back Room -- Adults Only,' one realizes this isn't the place to arrange a child's play date. The German designer unveiled a collection of dark furniture with hints of sexual connotation during the Imm Cologne fair. Most of the furniture shown is of the kinky persuasion -- complete with black leather, zippers, and chains.

The inspiration for Mike Meire was to challenge the certainties and beauties of conventional furniture by contrasting them with pieces that have a darker alter-ego.
