Trade Show: Heimtextil Frankfurt

What is your utopia?

Under the motto “Toward Utopia”, Heimtextil is presenting the design trends for 2019/2020 – with five interactive scenarios visualising future living concepts.

August 2018

Environmental problems. Political instability. Complex lifestyles. The challenges of the 21st century are wide and varied. As a reaction to this, people are seeking sustainability, mindfulness, deeper relationships, spiritual confirmation and a greater sense of purpose. Searching for ways of life that help us find this new utopia – a society that aims at promoting the well-being of all its citizens, respects its environment and is based on individual responsibility, positive behaviour and optimism – is becoming increasingly important.  

The upcoming Heimtextil 2019 from 8-11 January 2019 in Frankfurt am Main will be asking its visitors the question “What is your utopia?”. Under the motto “Toward Utopia”, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles is presenting five different interactive scenarios of future living concepts – developed by the London-based FranklinTill Studio together with Anne Marie Commandeur from the Stijlinstituut Amsterdam and Anja Bisgaard Gaede from SPOTT Trends & Business.

“Off-Grid” visualises the need for temporary time-out from the internet and the wish to reconnect with nature; “Escape Reality” is about escaping from the real world into a virtual cosmos; “Seek Sanctuary” represents withdrawing and finding security in minimalist spaces; a nostalgic response to today’s uncertain times is conveyed by “Embrace Indulgence”; and the unconditional hedonistic desire for play is explored by “Pursue Play”. These five globally valid design trends for the 2019/2020 season are being presented by Heimtextil in the newly designed “Trend Space”. As well as the future style worlds, the latest colour trends will also be at the focus here.
