Working place, fitness studio, restaurant - during the past months, our own four walls became more than just a place to withdraw to. How the pandemic has changed the way we live will be the upcoming season's main talking point - that is what Heimtextil Trend Council decided in a digital workshop at the end of March. The council's meeting marks the start of preparations for the next Heimtextil trade show. From 11th to 14th January 2022, the industry will get together in Frankfurt to exchange information and network again after a long trade show break. The event's highlight will be the innovations that will be presented at the event. “Even after the lean period, Heimtextil Trends will be at the heart of our fair and act as a central point for everyone looking for inspiration and wanting to update themselves on progressive design and the hottest furnishing themes of the coming season. Over three decades, the trends have become the international flagship and USP of Heimtextil,” says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
The council is formed by trend researchers from agencies SPOTT Trends & Business from Denmark, Studio FranklinTill from the UK and Stijlinstituut Amsterdam from the Netherlands. Anja Bisgaard from SPOTT Trends & Business will head the project and lend it a Scandinavian touch. New Work, Sustainability and Future Materials - every year, the council works together to identify design developments that define styles as well as industry trends. “The Heimtextil Trend Council has looked into the future trends from the longing for new and inspirational design trends over navigating new ways of communicating to continue our imperative track of sustainability through everything we do,“ says Bisgaard.
As part of the digital Trend Preview in September, the experts in charge will give insight into upcoming trends. The trend book 2021/22 is available at the online shop of Messe Frankfurt at www.heimtextil.messefrankfurt.com/trendbook.
