Domotex Deutsche Messe to house new creative product showcases

Home News Domotex Deutsche Messe to house new creative product showcases

Hannover, Germany—In 2018, Domotex will have a stronger focus on interior trends and lifestyle that will frame floor coverings in the broader context of ideas and innovations from the worlds of interior design, furnishing and art. As part of this approach, Deutsche Messe’s Hall 9 will house a Framing Trends display, Jan. 12-25. The new display area will comprise several artistically staged showcases dedicated to the keynote theme, Unique Universe.

The Framing Trends display will be made up of four zones, each with its own distinct perspective on the keynote theme. In the “Flooring Spaces” zone, companies from the floor coverings industry will be able to shine as pioneers and trendsetters by staging highly creative product showcases. In the “Living Spaces” zone, exhibitors will team up with partners from the interior design sector to craft inspiring spaces and innovative lifestyle realms. The “NuThinkers” zone is an opportunity for students, young designers and startups to present their innovative projects catering to product and service individualization. And, the “Art and Interaction” zone will present the keynote theme of Unique Universe in a sensory feast of exhibits from the worlds of art and design.

A limited number of slots are available in the “Flooring Spaces” zone, so an expert panel has been appointed to decide which of the submitting companies will be chosen to have their ideas and designs featured. Internationally renowned architect Peter Ippolito of Ippolito Fleitz Group, Stuttgart, Germany, heads the panel. He will be ably assisted by Hendrik Müller, architect and founder of einszu33 (Munich); Susanne Schmidhuber, founder and partner at Schmidhuber (Munich); and Dr. Susanne Kaufmann, a research associate at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart art museum.

Companies and manufacturers have until July 20 to submit proposals. For more details, visit: domotex.de/en/registration
