With the support of a think tank comprising members from across the world, Heimtextil continues to expand its knowledge of the commercial segment.
“Heimtextil offers an unbelievable range of products, incentives and networking opportunities for architects, interior designers and hoteliers,” explains Sabine Scharrer, director of Heimtextil.
“We aim to tease these out more from the overall portfolio of Heimtextil and prepare them in a way that suits current requirements within the industry. To this end, we have been in discussions with international experts and developed some exciting ideas.”
In mid-April, five representatives from internationally renowned architecture and interior design studios met in Frankfurt am Main. They included Lisa Hassanzadeh (concrete architectural associates), Peter Ippolito (Ippolito Fleitz Group), Martin Lesjak (INNOCAD Architektur), Tamara Pallasch (Pallasch Interiordesign) and Ushi Tamborriello.
Together, the expert team identified current themes in the industry and developed ideas aimed at giving architects and interior designers even more textile solutions and know-how suited to their needs at Heimtextil.
Determining and highlighting the performance and variety of applications for textiles in architecture and contract furnishing is one of the main objectives of the think tank.
Heimtextil combines all its expertise in applications for textiles in architecture, hotel furnishing and fittings in the contract sector under the title “Interior.Architecture.Hospitality”.
In addition to a high-quality programme of talks (Lectures Interior.Architecture.Hospitality), this also includes industry-specific trade fair tours (Tours Interior.Architecture.Hospitality), a special exhibitor guide (Guide Interior.Architecture.Hospitality) and a meeting point for architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers to network (Salon Interior.Architecture.Hospitality).
