Intelligent solutions for kitchen and household.

New expectations in the kitchen call for new solutions. But which kitchen and household aids are really up to the job? 
Which are both innovative and appealingly designed? Sebastian Bergne presents an intelligent selection in the special
‘Solutions’ exhibition. Based in London, the renowned industrial designer attaches particular significance to practical and materials based solutions.

Sebastian Bergne on Solutions

Sebastian Bergne talks

What is the purpose of 'Solutions'?

This exhibition is a link between manufacturers and consumers. It identifies and recognises the achievements and efforts 
of producers. It also provides a guide for trade buyers, who represent their consumers.

What are your criteria for selecting the products?

Of course, each product is thoroughly tested for its functionality. It must be a really good idea. The outcome is important, 
i.e. the practicality, use of material and ease of handling – but remember simple is not necessarily functional!

Does 'Solutions' identify coming trends?

Of course – for example, in terms of product types, areas of the home and functions are in particular demand. 2018 will 
bring many surprises!

Selected by experts

London-based industrial designer Sebastian Bergne is curator of the ‘Solutions’ special presentation. He is advised and supported by two renowned industry experts: Kate Birch, editor of ‘Tableware International’ in London and Dr Claudia Wasser, editor-in-chief of ‘Trend and Style’ in Baden-Baden. Together they have come up with an intelligent and diverse range of products.

‘As a designer, I know that you can always make a product more desirable, new ideas and materials are fundamental when creating better household products?’

Sebastian Bergne

‘With the growing interest in nutrition and food, new trends are emerging that require the appropriate tools. 'Solutions' is a valuable guide here.’

Kate Birch

‘The requirements of functionality and effectiveness are increasing when it comes to household items. At the same time, I see a clear trend towards high-quality design. The product is becoming a status symbol.’
