Architexture

 

‘Frei stands for freedom, as free and as liberating as a bird in flight, swooping and soaring in elegant and joyful arcs, (…) and as compelling in its economy of line and in the improbability of its engineering as it is possible to imagine, giving the marriage of form and function the invisibility of the air we breathe, and the beauty we see in nature.’ The words of the Pritzker Prize jury on this year’s laureate, Frei Otto.

 

The highest accolade for architecture internationally will be awarded posthumously on 15 May to the German architect who made his name with the tented-roof construction of the Munich Olympic Stadium and can be regarded as the father of textile architecture. Which is why we’re exploring in our main feature the creative, functional and ecological possibilities of textiles use in contemporary projects.

 

And Architonic is developing its competence in textiles, too. Designtextiles.com, the portal that we’ve developed with seven high-end brands (currently all from the German-speaking countries), shows you the space-shaping and functional advantages of textiles in architecture, as well as their variety in terms of design. What’s more, Architonic has curated the exhibition ‘Textiled Spaces – Photography by Deidi von Schaewen’, which runs from 4 to 7 May at Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and non-wovens.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our April Newsletter:

Wonderwall, a house in Thailand by architects SO, is designed to be as open-plan as possible and to meld together indoor and outdoor spaces

The trend towards breaking down the walls surrounding bathrooms and opening up this space – not just to other areas of the home, but to the outside world as well – was not only observable at ISH, but is also confirmed by a series of projects. Our feature article ‘Wild and wet: the new bathrooms getting in touch with nature’ provides more details.

We mark the forthcoming edition of ISH Frankfurt – which runs from 10 to 14 March – with a lead article that surveys the best of recent spa and wellness destinations internationally – ‘In Rude Health: New Wellness Projects’.

 

In the course of its 50-year history, ISH has continuously enlarged its focus, becoming a showcase for water and energy in combined applications. Apart from innovative bathroom design, the fair covers building utilities engineering as well as energy and climate technology, which enables it to bring together a host of pioneering technological solutions for buildings. One of the most exciting focal points of the fair is without a doubt the ‘smart home’, which, thanks to the latest technology, adapts itself to the lifestyle of its occupants.

 

To help you find your way through the diversity of topics and wealth of materials, products and systems at the fair, we have, as ever, compiled for you our Architonic Guide to ISH (PDF download), which will lead you to the most interesting exhibitors in a fast and targeted way.

The prominence of MAISON&OBJET in Paris is underscored by the fact that this multi-themed trade fair is held no less than twice a year. With a content focus ranging from accessories to innovative material surfaces, the fair has succeeded in positioning itself strategically as a forum for a range of industries covering the entire spectrum of interior design.

 

Accordingly, Paris is used as an information platform by a heterogeneous target group that includes not only architects and interior architects, but hotel operators, gift shop owners and, of course, interior decorators as well. However, the fair’s international prestige is based not just on the range of product groups and themes it offers, but also on its successful offspring in Singapore and Miami.

 

In Paris, Architonic will be breaking new ground in offering visitors to the fair a fascinating insight into the latest analytical data. The data is based on its long-term cooperation with all leading premium brands, which enables Architonic to present a representative picture of the latest developments on the market. What also makes the data so relevant is the high volume of traffic on Architonic. We look forward to welcoming you to the Architonic Trend Analysis at both entrances to the passageway between halls 7 and 8.

special_newsletter_imm_2015

 

imm cologne’s downward slide is now only a distant memory. For the past four years, Germany’s largest furniture fair has been taking new directions. Thanks to a lot of hard work by the fair’s organisers, it can now look to the future with as much confidence as it did before its crisis.

 

imm cologne’s current market position has of course been helped by positive developments in the German economy, but it would be unfair to attribute this return to prominence in the international trade fair rankings to economic conditions alone.

 

New and thematically varied hall layouts, a concentration of space on design-relevant products, and new themes and focal points for the exhibitions, such as Pure Village and Pure Textile, have established themselves just as successfully as the extensive presentation of up-and-coming young designers and their colleges of design with Pure Talents and Pure Startup.

 

The Cologne team managed to turn things round. Being able to bring Dick Spierenburg on board can be seen as a confident strategic move – after all, the Dutchman drew mixed reactions at the fair years before when he launched Design Post. Equally valuable was the 2011 relaunch of the platform for the kitchen industry – LivingKitchen – which proved a resounding success from the outset for all concerned. Architects, interior architects and designers will therefore find it well worth their while to visit imm cologne 2015 at the Cologne Trade Fair from January 19 to 25.

It is in the run-up to the Christmas holidays that the changes in our shopping habits become especially clear. In addition to bricks-and-mortar stores, people tend to visit online shops, which offer extended possibilities for browsing. Accordingly, eighty per cent of all purchases today begin on the Internet. E-commerce and purchases made in real shops are already perceived as elements of a single process, and in future they will be integrated even more closely. Customers benefit from the respective advantages of both shopping alternatives: they can obtain initial information online and then actually view and experience the product at a local store, from where it might be purchased online. As our leading article reveals, the offline store has not lost its significance as a result – its function has simply changed to one of supporting the profiles of specific brands and enhancing the shopping experience with event character.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our December Newsletter:

 

Shelf-life: Why Bookshop Interiors Are Turning Over a New Leaf
Flagship Enterprise: The Future of Corporate Store Architecture Emphasizes Individuality
Further Articles from Architonic’s ‘News & Trends’
