‘MONTAGE’: ‘Colour Riot’, ‘Dark Lux’, ‘Craft Industry’ and ‘Split Clarity’ Heimtextil Trend Book

New trend themes – ‘Colour Riot’, ‘Dark Lux’, ‘Craft Industry’ and ‘Split Clarity’ – dominated by colour and sustainability
‘MONTAGE’: Heimtextil Trend Book presents avant-garde projects from the interior, architecture, fashion and design sectors. An overview of the four new trend themes
The ‘off’ for the new Heimtextil Trend Season: on behalf of the Heimtextil Trendtable, Claudia Herke of designers bora.herke.palmisano gave an initial preview of the Heimtextil Trends for 2012/2013 in an atmospheric presentation held in the Portalhaus of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre on 26 August 2011, during the tendency trade fair in Frankfurt am Main. The four new trend themes published officially in the Heimtextil Trend Book, ‘MONTAGE’, and summarise the trend predictions for the 2012/2013 season.
Heimtextil exhibitors, designers, furnishing experts and interior decorators made use of this opportunity to find out about the latest colour, material and pattern developments in the field of home and household textiles. “We deliberately choose this early time to give the sector an important sign of the direction design trends expected to take in the coming season”, explains Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies of Messe Frankfurt.
The four new trend themes called ‘Colour Riot’, ‘Dark Lux’, ‘Craft Industry’ and ‘Split Clarity’. In all cases, colour plays a dominant role. “Colour is the decisive signal for the coming season. Powerful and omnipresent, colour refreshes the senses, sets important accents and is a conscious part of all styles”, says Claudia Herke. Addition­ally, sustainable materials are an interdisciplinary subject that plays a leading role throughout the trend prognosis.
