Heimtextil 2019 with new "Trend Space"
With a new showcase called "Trend Space", Heimtextil will return on 8-11 January, 2019. The trade fair is pushing ahead with the new concept for 2019: now that those responsible have worked out a completely new hall plan, they are turning their attention to redesigning the trend programme.
The design experts have begun preparations for the trends of the upcoming Heimtextil (8-11 January 2019). When it comes to showcasing trends at the trade fair, Heimtextil will receive support from a Frankfurt agency . As a specialist for communication within spaces, the company is planning an interactive, future-oriented exhibition that will immerse trade fair visitors in the world of trends 2019/2020 using analogue/digital experience formats. In future, the trend showcase will be called “Trend Space”, replacing the previous “Theme Park”. Those responsible for this change have chosen hall 3.0 as the new location. As part of the new Heimtextil concept, the “Trend Space” can be found in close proximity to international textile designers, CAD/CAM suppliers and digital printer manufacturers. Heimtextil is thus bringing the progressive themes of trends, textile design and digital printing together on one hall level, creating an area full of inspiration and future technologies. Hall 3.0 – exclusively for exhibitors – will be opened on the eve of Heimtextil on 7 January 2019.
Starting with a meeting in Frankfurt, trend researchers from three European offices are working on the Heimtextil trends 2019/20. A British design studio will once again play a leading role and is responsible for the implementation of the Trendbook. A Dutch and a Danish agency have joined forces with them to form the new Heimtextil Trend Council. During the two-day workshop, the three agencies compiled insights into current trends in interior design, architecture, fashion and art. They focused on developments in materials and textures, colours and patterns. Finally, they defined stylistically formative design themes from which a globally applicable trend forecast will be worked out in the coming months.
