Trade Show: Heimtextil

Old home, new home

Welcome home: The corona crisis has changed the significance of our own four walls and the way we design them. Which trends are on the mind of the interior design industry for the 2021/2022 season? Heimtextil Trend Council will deliver its outlook in Frankfurt am Main from 12th to 15th January 2021.

The living room is no longer just a living room, but now also an office and a school. In times of corona and national lockdowns people's lives are confined to small spaces and the term "home" is taking on an entirely different dimension.  „All of a sudden, the way we build, decorate and design our houses is more important than ever," trend researchers at Zukunftsinstitut wrote. And the experts at Heimtextil Trend Councils have also identified four design and colour trends for the 2021/2022 season, which will be demonstrated in the „Trend Space“ of upcoming Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main from 12th to 15th January 2021.

How is everything that is happening to people now affecting interior design? What innovations will enrich life in the future? And what trends will drive the industry next year? As every year, Heimtextil Trend Council met in spring 2020 to take a look at the future of interior design, only this time the meeting was digital - of course. For the first time, Anja Bisgaard Gaede and her Spott Trends & Business team from Denmark will head the project. „ In its function as a worldwide trend barometer, Heimtextil aspires and makes it its mission to recognise the future and give it a name and outline,“ says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.

The new „Digital Innovation Lab“ shows us that the future might be closer than we ever thought by examining the possibilities and additional market opportunities of a entirely digital textile supply chain - from design to the exclusively virtual use of products by the end consumer.
