Heimtextil dedicates a space for trends (hall 3.0), which is without a doubt the highlight of the event, where they analyse the latest market developments and trends for the upcoming season. Toward Utopia will be the theme for 2019. The need for a theme such as this emerged since our current century presents many challenges and the meaning of utopia seeks to create a society that respects everyone and the environment itself all in a positive light. With this theme in mind, Heimtextil created a space where one can experience five interactive scenarios for future living concepts, including Purse Play (a more playful approach to design and life); Seek Sanctuary (a haven to get away from the stresses of modern life); Off-Grid (a space where you can go offline and take on new challenges); Escape Reality (a digital universe) and Embrace Indulgence (an idea of remodeling one’s attitude to luxury).

“This space convinces with interactive and tactile worlds of experience. Visitors are playfully inspired, involved, and motivated to get to grips with futuristic, spatial design concepts. This creates a comprehensive picture of the design of future spaces and we can get some answers to the questions of how we will interact, consume, live, and work in the future.” – Olaf Schmidt, vice president of Textiles & Textile Technologies, the company that organises Heimtextil.
