Launch of preparations for Heimtextil 2020: A high-calibre committee met in Frankfurt am Main on 20 and 21 March 2019 to bring together the relevant trends from architecture, interior design, fashion and art and discuss their impact on home and contract textiles. The trend presentation at Heimtextil and the associated Trend Book with the style worlds 2020/2021 are the result of an intensive process.
Particularly striking this year was the broad range and wealth of inspirations and exemplary projects, which, despite their apparent diversity, combined to form a coherent overarching trend story. The Stijlinstituut Amsterdam will use the result achieved together to determine five design orientations over the coming months that will be staged in a tangible way for the industry and illustrated by products presented by Heimtextil exhibitors. In the Trend Book they will be described in detail and in a practice-oriented way.
Those present in Frankfurt included Anne Marie Commandeur, Grietje Schepers and Harm Rensink from Stijlinstituut Amsterdam (NL), Caroline Till and Titia Dane from Studio FranklinTill (GB) as well as Anja Bisgaard Gaede with her agency SPOTT trends + business (DK).
New: materials library on the theme of sustainability
Heimtextil Trends 20/21 will be supplemented by a materials library that will present innovative, sustainable materials and demonstrate their specific potential for the industry and interior design. The Heimtextil Trend Book, which will be available from September via Heimtextil, and the high-quality Trend Space during the fair will provide concrete illustrations of the trends with regard to themes, colours, materials, textures and patterns.
