Design firms meet for Heimtextil Trendbook
March 14, 2017,
Frankfurt, Germany-Seven trend agencies gathered at Messe Frankfurt here on March 7-8 to discuss upcoming design trends for the Heimtextil Trendbook.
Trend researchers from Denmark, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, the Netherlands and the United States (referred to in a Messe Frankfurt statement as the Trendtable team) discussed current trends in interior design, architecture, fashion and art during the two-day workshop. They also examined the results of market research about global design developments. Their work will form the basis for the Trendbook, which will be issued later this summer.
“Given that participants come from different continents, the Trendtable team at Heimtextil is able to draw from a comprehensive pool of inspiration and gain exciting perspectives on the interior design of tomorrow,” said Olaf Schmidt, vice president of textiles and textile technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
London-based design agency FranklinTill has taken the lead role in putting together the Trendbook and the Theme Park. The other designers and agencies involved in the project are Carlin International of France, Dan Project of Japan, Felix Diener of Germany, SPOTT Trends & Business of Denmark, Stijlinstituut Amsterdam of the Netherlands and U.S.-based WGSN.
