How do trendsetting flooring concepts come about? Simple: just take creative thinkers from five countries and renowned designer Stefan Diez as their mentor and organise a workshop in Diez's studio in Munich. Following an invitation by Deutsche Messe and Stefan Diez, a group of pioneering designers came together in July to work on DOMOTEX's new "Young Designer Trendtable" venture. Since then, the team has done a lot of research and experiments to identify new trends for the flooring industry and to provide fresh impulses.
At DOMOTEX 2017, visitors can take inspiration from the results of the international designers' work, exhibited in Hall 9. In five individually designed exhibition areas, the young talents will be showcasing their trend statements for 'future flooring', implementing their visions in the form of an installation. The Trendtable will not only be a magnet for industry visitors, but also for exhibitors looking for inspiration.
On Sunday, 15 January 2017, the Young Designer Trendtable will be the focus of DOMOTEX-Dialogues: design critic Dr. René Spitz will interview the young designers and discuss their approaches to flooring design (12:15 to 13:00 – Innovations@DOMOTEX area in Hall 6). From 13:00 to 14:30 the designers will introduce their installations in a guided tour on the subject of 'Trend Spotting', moderated by Melanie Seifert (World-Architects).
