In cooperation with the show organisers, we created the Trend Hub; a themed lounge area on the show floor where visitors could be inspired by information, images and interactive features all influenced by future design trends for the world of interiors and architecture.
The Trend Hub was a place in which to be enthralled by unusual material & texture samples from around the world and themed to also educate in future interior design trends. The Trend Hub was a space for visitors to adopt and ‘own’, taking advantage not only of the trend information but also of the opportunity to have somewhere to sit, chat, meet and work for a while.
The 2016 Trend Hub theme was ‘a day in the life ….’ concept showcasing a home lounge, an office workplace and a ‘social hub’ represented in the form of a coffee shop. Furniture by Boss Design and Flooring by Interface.
As we realise the potential consequences of having shared so much about ourselves this trend answers our desire to ‘take back control’ as designers explore ‘revealing’ and ‘concealing’. This space was designed to enable visitors to have a quiet moment inside a bustling exhibition. Cocooned furniture by Boss Design, Accessories by Worlds Away and cushions supplied by Casador.
A bright, fun, colourful design trend driven by the Millennial generation and taking the workplace by storm. This area investigates how to bring an element of ‘Play’ into offices and work spaces. The table tennis proved a very popular feature as well as the spinning tube chair by Boss Design.
A true Mega-Trend exploring our desire to connect with nature, natural materials and people; and whenever possible, to do all 3 at the same time. This space allowed visitors to readdress the importance of an extreme naturalness where nature inspires innovative design processes.
Our soft snug area was supplied by Tunisian Made Foutas and lifestyle essentials by Bains de mer.
Alex Turco was our trend hub sponsor; the decorative Art Panels are custom made to meet clients requirements in terms of size, color, and finish. Conceived to lavishly style interiors and to rejuvenate the concept of living well, the Canvas Art Panels are a valuable accent to tastefully created atmospheres. The Aluminum Art Panels are spectacular, one of a kind statements fashioned for either indoor or outdoor use.
