'Well-being 4.0' key trend at next Heimtextil

Sep '15
'Well-being 4.0' is the key trend at the next Heimtextil trade fair which runs from January 12 to 15, 2016 and in a conference, managers of the trade fair revealed the new furnishing trends for 2016/2017.

Anne Marie Commandeur from Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, Mayouri Sengchanh from Exalis/Carlin International and Felix Diener were other members of the Heimtextil trend forum at the conference.

They were joined by Lisa Douet of the WGSN Group, which is spearheading the design of the 'Theme Park' this year and all were on hand to predict interior-design trends in textiles for the coming season.

“New design themes will be defined by an integrated approach which restores a people-centred design focus with a stronger appeal to the senses,” the organiser Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.

'Well-being 4.0' is all about textile furnishing that exudes an aura of relaxation and calm and everything will be geared towards offering a better life and greater well-being.

“We need to find ways of connecting what's natural with what's artificial,” Lisa Douet said during the conference while underlining one of the core challenges.

'In addition to respecting technology, we have to ensure that natural materials and handcrafted products have a place on the design shelf of the future too,” she added.

Both the new trend book, presented during the conference, and the 'Theme Park' at the fair offer diverse pioneering projects in this respect.

The new trend book comprises three sections, with the first book, portraying four trend themes based on materials, designs and colours.

The second is a colour palette which looks at the range of the new on-trend colours and can be used as a tool to work with.

Finally there's an editorial which illustrates the predominant 'well-being 4.0' trend and looks at the use of plants to appeal to the senses, places the spotlight on valuable minerals and therapeutic textiles.

For Heimtextil 2016, the trade fair's managers are continuing the 'Theme Park' concept, developed the previous year for Heimtextil, but is moving to hall 6.0, where there is lots of space and can stand alone as a showcase.

“Its concept development and implementation, the accompanying book and the new website are the responsibility of the WGSN Group from the US,” Messe Frankfurt observed. (AR)
