Trends: a survey of interzum 2015 exhibitors


12


Resource conservation, sustainable raw materials, innovative surface design - these are just a few of the trends that were announced in this sector for 2015. Here we focus on the Top 3 Trends showcased at the latest interzum event.


A leading international trade fair like interzum presents visitors with the newest trends in the furniture industry and interior design. While preparing for the fair, exhibitors considered questions like what trends do they see for the future? Which products will deliver on those trends? And which new products and services will they actually present at the fair? To find out more, Koelnmesse asked the interzum exhibitors some questions ahead of the show.


The following three main trends emerged from the survey of exhibitors in the Materials & Nature segment: naturalness, coupled with real woods or a solid-wood look, personality and authenticity as well as the trend towards an extremely high-gloss finish or an ultra-matt look. Future-focused factors like sustainability, plain colours and earthy tones were also mentioned.


These trends also had an impact on the Materials & Nature event area in Hall 6 during the show because of the three central ideas behind the Piazza’s slogan, ‘Passion on Demand’. This reflects the increasing demand for sustainable products in furniture design and interior construction which convey emotion and the trend towards the more individual in development of new products and concepts.
