From vision to trend


Design developments shown at Material Vision influence tomorrow’s trends: at the Heimtextil Trend Presentation at the end of August, designers bora.herke.palmisano offered an initial glimpse of the Heimtextil Trends for 2012/2013 on behalf of the Heimtextil Trend Table. One of the four trend themes for the coming season, 2012/2013, is ‘Craft Industry’, the combination of traditional arts & crafts on the one hand and industrial, machine-made products on the other hand. A source of inspiration for the ‘Craft Industry’ was an ‘old friend’ presented at Material Vision 2011: the Hemp Chair of designer Werner Aisslinger (for BASF), a product that does not discard old ideas but reconstructs, reuses and reinterprets them. The designer chair is made 100 % of natural fibres and can be produced in large numbers using industrial methods.
