Trends: a survey of interzum 2015 exhibitors


30


Customising and comfort were among the top trends in this sector at interzum in 2015 along with the concept of merging rooms and spaces together. Here we offer a brief insight into specific emerging industry trends.


While preparing for their interzum appearance, exhibitors considered what trends do trade visitors and the general public envisage for the future? Which products will deliver on those trends? And which new products and services will best represent their company at the fair? Koelnmesse asked the interzum exhibitors some questions to help predict future trends.


In the Functions & Components sector, three main trends have appeared: the merging together of various rooms, customising and the comfort factor. In addition, quality and price, the Smart Home, LED and technical optimisation are also predicted to take centre stage in 2015 and beyond.


TOP 3 TRENDS


Trend 1: Merging different rooms For Hening Pölitz, Managing Director of GERA Leuchten, lighting in interior design is becoming more and more of a formative element, particularly in view of the growing trend for merging rooms into one another. “The right lighting lends the desired structure and atmosphere to furniture and spaces in open layouts,” says Pölitz. Häfele recognises the global social trend of merging working and living environments and among the company’s product portfolio are clever organisational options with innovative furniture solutions. In this context, Suspa also considers electrical adjustment functionality to be of increasing importance – not least because of changing demographics.
