Trevira fibres and yarns create excitement at Heimtextil 2009
Feb '09
In 2009 Trevira was once again present at Heimtextil, both as exhibitor and with its involvement in two special projects. The main objective of such projects is to offer Trevira CS customers an additional platform on which to present their fabrics. The number of Trevira CS customers participating at the fair this year again showed a slight increase: "This is an indication on the one hand of the attractiveness of our brand and it also shows that many new collections are appearing in the market, based on flame retardant Trevira fibres and yarns. Today the collections are so attractive they are being used not only in contract business, but in the private market as well", says Gerhard Havranek, Head of Marketing Trevira CS & Strategic Business Development.

Competition for innovative seating sponsored by Trevira CS
This year there were 25 design entries from students in seven countries for the Young Contract Creations Award Upholstery. This is a joint project between Messe Frankfurt, the trade journal PolsterFashion and Trevira. Ten Trevira CS customers had generously made available their collection books and hanging samples to the participants.

The first prize in the competition, offered for the most innovative seating with the greatest practical potential in terms of manufacture for catering chains, went to the "klEMMI" model by Mareike Büdding, a student at the Fachhochschule Coburg. Described as a design with the "perfect blend of functionality and comfort", "klEMMI" is made up of various modules that can be used separately or as a seating group, where every element can be affixed to each table.

The panel of five praised the intense way in which Mareike Büdding approached the topic, producing a seating concept with manufacturing potential. "The greatest challenge in the competition for innovative seating seems to lie in the practicality of the ideas. It would be good to have more designs submitted in the next competition that are fully thought through, like the "klEMMI" concept", says Anja Greger from the panel, who is responsible for Heimtextil developments at Trevira.

Fabrics by Bautex and Conjugi Eger were used in the winning entry. For its prototype the prizewinner received a cash prize of 1,500 €, the same sum going to the Fachhochschule in Coburg. The winner was also offered a period of practical training lasting some weeks at a company in the furniture industry.

In acknowledgment of the large number of entries from Eastern Europe the panel awarded a total of three recognition prizes this year.

The "Dialogue" design by Markus Rink, Fachhochschule Coburg, impressed the panel with its idea of furniture integrated into a partition separating off the seating area in a coffee bar and offering a nice niche to withdraw into. Bautex supplied the Trevira CS fabric for "Dialogue", and a good deal was required in its construction.
