Heimtextil has started preparations for next trade fair to be held from January 9 to 12, 2018. Trend researchers from Denmark, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, the Netherlands and US discussed current trends in interior design, architecture, fashion and art.
Given that participants come from different continents, the team at Heimtextil draws from a comprehensive pool of inspiration. Designers analyse developments in materials and textures, colors and patterns from all corners of the world and determine the stylistic design themes. At the end of the process, a mutual, globally applicable trend prognosis for the coming 18 months will be agreed upon and presented.
A team from Denmark will be involved in the development of Heimtextil trends for the first time. SPOTT aims at the individual development of brands and combines trend research with neuroscience and commercial expertise. A team from the Netherlands focuses on textile innovations, predictions, color trends and strategic design concepts. WGSN from the US is one of the leading international trend studios for color and design. Via a global network of design consultants and color specialists, the company creates trend statements, quantifiable forecasts, outlooks and product data as well as reliable color trends.
British design studio Franklin Till comprises trend researchers, designers and stylists as well as a broad-ranging international network of creatives and visionaries.
