Heimtextil “Theme Park” sparks the spirit of research

 “Explorations” presented as overarching trend theme

 Carlin International/Exalis present the trends for 2017/2018 as well as the design of the new “Theme Park”

Heimtextil 2017 invites us on a journey into the unknown, full of curiosities and fascination. With “Explorations”, the “Theme Park” will provide exactly the right theme for Heimtextil from 10-13 January 2017. A first glimpse of the new furnishing trends for 2017/18 was presented by those responsible for organizing the trade fair in a discussion session transmitted live across the world on 6 September 2016 at the Hotel Lindenberg in Frankfurt. Those present included Natalie Weinmann from the design agency Carlin International/Exalis, responsible for the conception and design of this year’s “Theme Park”. With Anne Marie Commandeur from the Stijlinstituut Amsterdam and Felix Diener from the design studio of the same name, additional members of the Heimtextil Trendtable also took part in the conference and gave their prognoses for textile interior design for the coming season.

The Heimtextil trend experts have examined the disciplines of retail, technology, hospitality, transport, work and home and made numerous new discoveries. Bearing in mind the key phrase “marketing decoding”, the book informs readers which new aspects could be of benefit for companies and their brands in future. Pioneering projects and start-up ideas are presented and creative suggestions and unconventional approaches offered. In doing so, the trend researchers are answering the ambitious call for exploration and the desire to tap into unknown worlds. Creative self-observation and the need to investigate and understand how people function also play an important role. “Based on the theme ‘exploration’, we have looked for materials, textures and elements to bring innovations to life. In doing so, we discovered fabrics that gave rise to surprising combinations when merged with other materials. It is these nine fabrics from unknown worlds that captivate us. At the same time, the natural aspects reveal an unexpected sensuousness,” explains Natalie Weinmann from the design agency Carlin International/Exalis. Both the new trend book that will be presented during the conference and the “Theme Park” at the trade fair invite visitors to carry out their own explorations and discover new production and marketing approaches. An initial overview of the statements provided by the trend researchers is already available online: background information is supplied and design projects presented at www.heimtextil-theme-park.com.

Trade fair highlight “Theme Park” in hall 6.0
As the world’s largest specialist trade fair for home and contract textiles, Heimtextil functions as a barometer for trends and yardstick for quality textiles with excellent design and innovative functionality. This is why Messe Frankfurt got the Heimtextil trend underway in 1991 and has consistently expanded it ever since. Every year, a Trendtable with international members investigates the most important universal trends and supplies product developers, creative teams, furnishers and designers with valuable advice and reliable trend statements. At Heimtextil 2017, those responsible for organising the trade fair will continue the trend concept and implement the “Theme Park” as the central trend-related and inspirational area of Heimtextil in Hall 6.0. The conception and realisation of this showcase at the trade fair, as well as the design of the accompanying book and new website, will be managed by the French trend agency Carlin International under the leadership of Exalis from Berlin.

Heimtexil Theme Park “Explorations” – Trends 2017/2018 –
an overview of the themes:
Virtual Explorations
1 vitualDigital processes enable a new interpretation of transparency. Thanks to a mother-of-pearl-like shimmer, fabric is brought to life in a vibrant way. Films and silk are reminiscent of reflections in water thanks to dazzling holographic brilliance. Extravagant floral patterns, embroidery, jacquards and lace dominate and give rise to astonishing fascination. A new form of digital exoticism is born. Structures from cell organisms inspire and convey a new understanding of 3D. Organic-animal structures give technical materials a sensuous-poetic flexibility. Colours are lively and reminiscent of water.

1 vitual 2 1 vitual 3 1 vitual 4

Cultural Explorations
A new urban multiculturalism unfolds: various cultural influences merge to form a unique multinational in-culture. This transformation can also be seen in interiors. A focus on particular cultures is increasingly disappearing. Traditional techniques are being modernized and merged together, resulting in highly modern and luxurious modifications. Pigment colors merge with urban shades to form a universal ethnic look.

cultural-modernized-tradition cultural-urban-ethniccultural-couleurs

Planetary Explorations
planetary-couleur In an unknown, interplanetary world, raw materials are used and the interior becomes a mineral itself. A new, magical brilliance is extracted from the materials, which are given protective characteristics. From this wealth of materials ariseplanetary-protection-souple material extracts and textures hitherto unknown. New wipe techniques form fine structures of mineral-like delicacy. The principle of controlled chances leads to new kinds of shading. Deliberately voluminous materials are reminiscent of the surface of the moon and serve as soft, protective shells. The color palette plays with light and dark and oscillates between bright white and ash-cultured tones.

Natural Explorations
The way to rediscovering urban aspects takes us through nature. The use of natural materials in industrial natural-couleurmanufacturing processes is more contemporary now than ever before – not least out of respect for our planet. But this isn’t enough: the interior is entering into a symbiosis with nature. Touch is dominated by natural fiber effects such as wood-like reliefs or bark structures. The materials make use of geometric elements in order to imitate the plant world. Details from the animal world are incorporated with the help of textures. This gives rise to camouflage patterns, both original and finished, from the animal and plant world. Intensive green tones mix with colors inspired by tree bark and earth.

Ev tekstilinin dünyaca ünlü fuarı Heimtextil ’e Türkiye’den 211 firma katıldı

Almanya’nın Frankfurt kentinde düzenlenen ve dünyanın en büyük ev tekstil fuarı olarak kabul edilen Heimtextil’de, bu yıl 69 ülkeden 2 bin 866 firma ağırlanırken, Türkiye’den de 211 firma fuarda yer aldı. Türkiye Ev Tekstili Sanayicileri ve İşadamları Derneği (TETSİAD) Genel Koordinatörü Haşim Büyükbalcı, fuar hakkında olumlu açıklamalarda bulunarak, fuara Türk firmalarının her geçen yıl artan bir sayı ile katıldıklarını, fuarın Türkiye ev tekstili ihracatı için önemli katkıları olduğundan bahsetti

Frankfurt’ta gerçekleştirilen ve dünyanın en önemli ev tekstili fuarlarından biri olan Heimtextil Fuarı, tüm dünyada olduğu gibi Türkiye’nin de ev tekstili ihracatı için büyük önem arz ediyor. İş potansiyeli açısından beklentileri karşıladığı düşünülen fuar için, dünyanın dört bir köşesinden satın alma heyetleri, sektör profesyonelleri, katılımcılar ve ziyaretçiler bir araya geliyor. Türk firmaları katılımcı sayısı olarak fuarda en kalabalık beşinci grubu oluştururken metrekare bazında Alman firmalardan sonra en büyük yeri kaplıyordu.

Bu yıl bu önemli fuara 211 firma ile katılan Türk ev tekstili sektörü adına TETSİAD Genel Koordinatörü Haşim Büyükbalcı şu açıklamalarda bulundu; Yakın zamanda Türkiye’nin komşuları ile yaşadığı olumsuz durumlar, Türk ev tekstili sektörü için de olumsuz şartlar doğurdu. Rusya ile yaşanan kriz neticesinde kaybedilen Rusya pazarını Almanya’da telafi etme çabası içerisindeyiz. Bu fuar öncesi farklı ülkelerde Türk ev tekstili sektörü adına çeşitli tanıtım çalışmalarında da bulunduk. Bu çalışmaların meyvelerini de toplamaya başlıyoruz. İhracatta kaybı telafi edecek yeni pazarlara ulaşmak en büyük hedefimiz”.

Türk ev tekstil sektörünün dünyada 4. sıraya oturduğunun altını çizen Büyükbalcı, sözlerine şöyle devam etti; “Amerika pazarında sektör adına daha fazla büyüme stratejimiz var. Kıta ülkelerine daha fazla katma değerli ürün satmak en önemli hedefimiz. Son dönemlerde yeni pazar arayışlarımız var. Bu noktada da Japonya bizim için önemli bir pazar. Messe Frankfurt tarafından Japonya’nın başkenti Tokyo’da düzenlenecek Interior Lifestyle Fuarına, Türkiye’den milli katılım düzenlenmesi için İTKİB ile birlikte çalışıyoruz. Milli katılım iznimiz çıktı ve çok yoğun bir taleple karşılaştık. Hedef pazar olan Japonya’da gerçekleştirilecek milli katılıma Ekonomi Bakanlığı yüzde 70 oranında destek vermekte. Japonya pazarı çok zor, çok zahmetli gibi görünse de şimdiden atılacak adımlar ilerisi için bir altyapı oluşturacaktır. Ayrıca Güney Amerika başta olmak üzere Afrika kıtası da hedef pazarlarımız arasında”.

Heimtextil hosted more exhibitors and visitors 

Heimtextil 2015 in Frankfurt am Main closed its doors after recording an increase of around three percent in the number of visitors over the previous year.

More than 68,000 trade visitors (2014*: 66,265) were delighted with the high quality of the products and their designs, and kept exhibitors busy throughout the fair. The 2,759 exhibitors from 68 countries (2014: 2,714 from 62 countries) were no less delighted with the orders placed by buyers. The further increase in the level of internationality – from 87 to 88 percent on the exhibitor side and from 67 to 68 percent on the visitor side – also ranks as a success factor for the trade fair. “This has been the most successful Heimtextil for many years and means we have not only extended our lead as the world’s most important event for home and contract textiles but can also confirm the positive outlook for the economic climate. The significant increase in the number of affluent buyers once again demonstrates the high power of attraction exercised by our exhibitors and their products”, said a very pleased Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.

At the beginning of the new furnishing season, this year’s Heimtextil was able to boast the fifth increase running in the number of exhibitors and thus send positive signals to the sector. The fact that Heimtextil is an important opening event, especially for buyers, was underscored by Patric Gehlhaus, Category Manager, Galeria Kaufhof/Metro Group, who said, “Heimtextil is characterized by the large number of national and international companies taking part, and the high quality of the products on show. We not only make good use of the fair for trend scouting and finding innovations but also place orders. At present, much revolves around the subjects of sustainably and customer well being. However, holistic home concepts and implementation at the point of sale are also focal points. Ethno design and pastel shades are set to be a major trend for our stores this year.”

Particularly high level of satisfaction among international exhibitors

The good figures were also confirmed by the very positive results of both the visitor and exhibitor polls. 95 percent of all visitors achieved their goals for the fair (up two percent compared to 2014), which underscores the high standard of exhibitors at Heimtextil. The fair was also given a very good rating by exhibitors: 77 percent of respondents (2014: 77 percent) said they were satisfied to extremely satisfied with the fair. This was confirmed by Alessandra Ferretti, Export Manager of Italy’s Jannelli & Volpi: “It has been a great fair. The visitors included all the right people and we registered more definitive business contacts than anywhere else. The echo from all parts of the world has been fantastic, especially to our new Armani collection.”

There were particularly large increases in the number of European visitors from Great Britain, Italy and Spain. From the Arabian Peninsula, more visitors came from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. More visitors also came to Frankfurt from overseas nations, such as Japan and the USA. As expected, there was a decline in the visitor numbers from the Ukraine and Russia.

New ‘Theme Park’ trend area a great attraction

The new ‘Theme Park’ in Hall 4.0 proved to be a highly popular highlight – in the heart of the fair: “A clear and good trend show”, said Soizic Gilibert, proprietor and designer of Cosmic Zoo design studio from France. “I was able to gain valuable inspiration from the installations. Particularly interesting for me were the ethnic themes and the wide range of exhibitor fabrics.” In addition to the main parts, such as the ‘Material Gallery’ and the ‘Color Pavilion’, particular interest was shown in the themed installations, such as the seven-meter high foot spa for the ‘hospitality’ segment and a digital textile printer in the ‘Technology Lab’. Using virtual-reality glasses for the retail sector also offered some new perspectives by showing ways in which retailers can present textiles virtually and thus create a symbiosis between online and offline sales.

Heimtextil to begin a day earlier from 2016

At the beginning of the fair, Messe Frankfurt announced that next year’s Heimtextil would begin and end a day earlier, on the Tuesday and Friday respectively. With this change, the Heimtextil management is complying with the wishes of many exhibitors and visitors. “For the retail trade, Saturday is an important sales day. In this age of increasing online shopping, it is important that bricks-and-mortar trade retailers can offer their customers first-class products and services. And, generally speaking, the most important day for this is Saturday”, explained Detlef Braun.

The next Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main will take place from Tuesday, 12 January, to Friday, 15 January 2016.

▪    Buyers emphasize the high quality and wide range of products on show.

▪    Turkey was represented by a wide range of products, from curtains and curtain accessories to carpets, displayed by 156 companies. UTIB (Uludag Textile Exporters’ Association) led the way in new trends.

▪    New sequence of days:
Heimtextil from Tuesday to Friday from 2016.
