With a riot of colours, the Heimtextil 2012 Trend Show will offer insights into future-oriented trends and materials for the coming season. From 11 to 14 January 2012, visitors to the international trade fair for home and contract textiles can obtain a comprehensive overview of the latest design developments in four elaborate thematic worlds while international designers provide in-depth information about the trend prognoses in accompanying lectures.
Colours are set to play a leading role at the Heimtextil 2012 Trend Show: “We use intensive colours to set decisive accents. In the new season, rich, fresh shades will act as channels for emotions”, explains Claudia Herke of bora.herke.palmisano, the design agency responsible for the concept of the Trend Show and fabric selection. At the show, skilful lighting and carefully chosen materials will underscore the designers’ trend forecasts. Aesthetic elements, shapes, materials, patterns and colours will be shown in a tangible and fascinating way based on the latest fabric collections of the Heimtextil exhibitors. At the same time, the show will illuminate the trends from different international perspectives and, in addition to products by well-known designers, present a variety of exemplary applications.
A daily programme of lectures by top speakers will provide supplementary, in-depth information about current design and market developments. Among the design agencies making contributions to the programme are FranklinTill from Great Britain, Global Color Research from the USA, Promostyl from France and ready-made Graeff+Schmelzer from Germany. Additionally, design specialists and representatives of the Heimtextil Trend Table will provide insights into their work and perspectives. Claudia Herke of design agency bora.herke.palmisano will explain the Heimtextil Trends 2012/13 ‘MONTAGE’ three times a day.
