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)

'Bitmap' collection by Zuzunaga

‘Bitmap’ collection by Zuzunaga

Cristian Zuzunaga’s textile designs works on many levels. The London- and Barcelona-based designer’s latest collection is no exception.

 

‘Bitmap’ plays with the idea of a simultaneous micro and macro view of the world, referencing as it does the visual DNA of digital imagery examined close up and, at the same time, the urban landscape presented in cartographic form – a bit of a map. The clue is in the name of the woven products, such as ‘New York’, ‘Shanghai’, ‘Tokyo’ and, of course, ‘Barcelona’.

Three dimensional textiles by Angharad McLaren

Three dimensional textiles by Angharad McLaren

At this year’s 100%Futures the Britsh textile designer Angharad McLaren presented her recent works, a collection of artfully woven textiles suitable for blinds, screens or wall panels.

A passion for the sea and water-sports such as sailing and windsurfing visually inspire the colours, patterns and textures in Angharad’s designs. Her personal experience of sports and performance textiles has also led to an interest and exploration of hi-tech yarns and finishes such as neoprene and reflective yarns as well as organic, recycled and eco-friendly fibres. In an experimental design process she combines these with new weave structures and updates traditional patterns, sometimes combining industrial production with hand- finishing techniques to create unique innovative effects.

“As the yarns and materials I use are quite unusual, I sometimes have to experiment with a lot of different weave structures and techniques until I get the right effect. Weaving intrigues me as there are so many possibilities within a logical framework of structures and limitations- I like to push these boundaries and develop new techniques to get the effect I’m looking for, such as using a traditional technique with very modern yarns or combining hand craft techniques with industrial production.”
