Heimtextil 2018: "The future is urban"
Urbanisation is one of the key words of our time. More than half the world's population already lives in cities. In its "Theme Park" inspiration area, the upcoming Heimtextil (9-12 January 2018) will reveal how urban life is likely to impact the worlds of living and working in future.
As part of the official “Theme Park” preview in Frankfurt am Main, a London design studio gave an initial insight into the new trend concept. Under the title “The future is urban”, Kate Franklin and Caroline Till presented the new Heimtextil Trendbook. Together with Anne Marie Commandeur and Felix Diener , they published their predictions for future interior design.
"With the new Heimtextil Trendbook, textile manufacturers, designers, fitters and furnishers will get a valuable overview of trailblazing design developments," says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. The "Theme Park" will also provide in-depth information about new design themes during the trade fair in January. The elaborately designed presentation in hall 6.0 will incorporate market-defining themes and present solutions for the textile interior of tomorrow. Those interested in trends can already get some answers to their furnishing questions of the future on www.heimtextil-theme-park.com.
