Heimtextil is the leading and largest trade fair specialising in home furnishing and contract textiles

Heimtextil, the leading and largest trade fair specialising in home furnishing and contract textiles, will once again open its doors in Frankfurt am Main for four days from 14 to 17 January 2015. Around 70,000 trade visitors, including many architects and interior designers, will take advantage of the early date in the year to put themselves in the picture as regards product innovations and trends for the coming season. One especially exciting feature is sure to be the newly installed Theme Park in Hall 4.0. It picks up on the intentions of the previous trend show and now continues it as an event highlight in the heart of the exhibition site. Here, everything revolves around topics of design and the future, around concepts and visions. (by Ulrich Büttner)

‘Salinas’ by Patricia Urquiola is characterised by non-traditional structure, modules and materials

On a family holiday to Lake Garda as a teenager, staying near the town of Malcesine, I discovered a design store that seemed to house all the contemporary design I had only ever seen before in books.
