Another source of inspiration for visitors from the fields of manufacturing, interior furnishing, architecture and textile design is the CAMPUS special area – an exhibition by 17 leading European design universities in Hall 4.2, which is being organised in cooperation with the Berlin-based ‘rooms for free’ association. Students from 12 countries present their ideas for textiles, which they prepared especially for Heimtextil 2012, to the international audience of trade visitors there. In addition to German students, the participants come from universities in Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Great Britain, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Hungary. As a non-European guest, Brazil’s Orbitato University will present examples of its work on the joint stand. This is the sixth time that the presentation is being held and it has developed into a Heimtextil highlight for young, creative design.
Inspiration from the world of fashion
Heimtextil also offers inter-disciplinary sources of inspiration for young design. Thus, for the first time, the Academy for Apparel Design of the Frankfurt School for Apparel and Fashion will have its own stand in Hall 11.0. The students, who are being supported by Heimtextil, will offer insights into their projects by showing examples of their own models and their ideas for the colours, zeitgeist and fashion trends likely to dominate in 2013.
