What makes a trend.

Successful trend-setting means getting a sense of which colours, shapes and materials will go down well.

What better way to get up close to the latest trends than at the special presentation “Trends 2018” curated by Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano? They have scoured the international fashion, design, art and architecture scenes for new trends. These are displayed in four themed worlds of selected exhibitors’ products. Accompanying lectures will provide further pointers. The Trend Book is available at the fair.

Trend presentation: Galleria 1

Trend lectures: 2019 – Ambiente Academy in Hall 9.1 D90

Individual, picturesque designs are daringly presented with a dash of eccentricity and magnificent details. Opulent materials including precious stones and porcelain characterise this look.
