Ambiente brings gifts to life Young designers at Ambiente


Europe’s largest retail trade event, Ambiente, will take place from February 12 – 16 in Frankfurt, where over 4,018 companies will be presented to buyers from all over the world. For 2016 the partner company of Ambiente will be Italy, a globally renowned hotbed of luxurious, classic design. In the 'Giving' product group, visitors will find everything that is


currently or will be available as a gift. Reflecting the market’s growing segment of fashion, jewellery and watches, Ambiente has opened up a new segment specifically for 'Accessories & Jewellery' where fashion and handmade jewellery, leather goods, bags, belts and other fashion accessories, beauty-care items, wellness products and beauty accessories will all be exhibited together. 'Time Square' and 'Traveller’s Point' will continue to feature in Hall


9.2 completing the product range. Visitors can look forward to seeing international exhibitors including


Biba, Collection Claudia Schmiesing, Concept Art, with its Sweet Deluxe brand, Culture Mix, Dazzl Design, Heide Heinzendorff, Lizas, Roberto Leonardi and Ruppenthal. Featuring gifts for children and toddlers, Hall 11.1 is another new


focal point at the fair where visitors will see practical yet pretty gift articles for the younger generation. See Carletto with its Ty brand products, Donkey Products, Jellycat, Rex International and Tyrrell Katz. Put simply, Ambiente grows in the areas that the market is developing and is where ideas for the coming season are born. Exhibitors in all three major product areas at Ambiente – Dining,


Giving and Living – have trends available that both cater for children's tastes and help to encourage good behaviour. Participating in the show are suppliers specialising in children's products, such as Coppenrath Verlag publishing house (Spiegelburg), Haba and Sheepworld, and including companies such as Essenza Home and WMF, which carries children's collections as well as lines for adults. Continuing for 2016, visitors will see innovations, and new items in


the exhibitor halls; Pipe & Cigar Show, Gifts Unlimited, Passage Gifts, Smoking Accessories and Young & Trendy.


10 Giftware Review & Home Interiors January / February 2016


For the 16th year at Ambiente, young designers will receive a career boost from Messe Frankfurt, as part of the 'Talents' package. Each one of the young designers selected will receive, free of charge,


their own exhibition stand, including infrastructure and services, and will thus be able to present themselves and their work to thousands of international visitors and to establish new contacts. A total of 31 young talents in all, from 13 countries, will be exhibiting at


Ambiente from February 12-16 2016. Eighteen of them are, this year, to be found in the 'Loft' section in Hall 11.0, and 13 of the 'Talents' are located in the 'Dining' section in Hall 4.0. Nicolette Naumann, Vice President Ambiente/Tendence, looks towards


the next generation, saying: "Our 'Talents' have established themselves as a source of inspiration for both industry and retail trade alike. In contrast to established manufacturers, young designers work outside a lot of the constraints and enjoy a genuine freedom to try out new terrain. A result of curiosity and stubbornness, new questions and answers emerge that offer important stimuli for the sector everywhere." There are many young representatives for the 2016 'Talents' from Italy,


the partner country at Ambiente, including Domenico Santoro and Francesca Puddu with their Studio Pastina (Italian for 'small cake') – are presenting bowls and vases in ceramic and concrete. Other ‘Talents’ include Turkish designer Tamer Nakisci, while French-


born Araine Prin, who now lives in London, has mixed metal shavings, a by- product of key-making, with plaster and resin for her experimental 'Rust' collection. Products by Entrelaçadas from Portugal will also bring something new and exciting to the mix, while Berlin-based duo Krupka-Stieghan will present some fascinating concepts for the first time at Ambiente.
