News: Heimtextil Expands Trend Presentation


Heimtextil Expands Trend Presentation 

A new season, a new Trendtable, a new concept: Heimtextil is working on a completely new kind of trend presentation for the next trade fair for home and contract textiles coming January 2015. “We plan to expand the Trend Show into a ‘Theme Park’ and make room for a comprehensive presentation of future-oriented subjects relevant to the sector., says Olaf Schmidt, VP Messe Frankfurt.   “The ‘Theme Park’ will concentrate creativity, science, technology, business and communication to reveal new solutions and developments in the world of textile interiors.

For the first step, experts from six international design studios met for the Trendtable in Frankfurt am Main on March 5th  and exchanged ideas and opinions on global design developments. The results of their deliberations represent the creative basis for the new ‘Theme Park’ at Heimtextil 2015, which will include hospitality and sustainability areas, as well as a color area and presentation zones visualizing trend and innovation themes.


Members of the 2015 Trend Table include representative of design studios WGSN from the USA, French agency Exalis / Carlin International, FranklinTill Studio, Great Britain, Dan Project, Japan, and Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, the Netherlands.


During the meeting in Frankfurt, all the design studios  involved presented their own trend predictions, which were then discussed and refined. The designers introduced a variety of future-oriented projects from the fields of architecture, interior design, fashion, art and lifestyle from all over the world.
