Interior.Architecture.Hospitality with textile innovations and ‘Room Scenarios’ at the Heimtextil Summer Special

13 Jun 2022

Heimtextil is holding its highly acclaimed Interior.Architecture.Hospitality programme at the Summer Special. Distinguished by top speakers, this knowledge and networking platform is aimed specifically at contract-furnishing experts.

Planned are lectures and guided tours to be curated and accompanied thematically by Heimtextil partners, AITDialog, bdia and World-Architects. ‘Hospitality Trends meet Sustainability’ is the motto of the Heimtextil ‘Sleep & More’ conference. Another must see are the Heimtextil Trends 22/23, a plea for new ways of thinking under the motto ‘Next Horizons’. Thus, the Heimtextil Summer Special from 21 to 24 June 2022 is set to be an unmissable date for all professionals in the fields of architecture, interior architecture, hospitality and design.

Room Scenarios: the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LECTURES 2022

‘Room Scenarios’ is the watchword of the 2022 Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LECTURES, in which the curators of AITDialog consider the question of how rooms and their usage must change to meet current and future challenges. The topics to be discussed include concepts such as mixed use and hybrid partial usage of areas, long life cycles for buildings, alternative forms of accommodation and office landscapes. Naturally, particular attention will be paid to the role played by textiles in furnishing such future-oriented concepts. As superordinate motifs, account will be taken of approaches to sustainability, zero waste, cradle-to-cradle and longevity in each of the topics. The keynote address entitled ‘textiles in progress’ will be given by Jana Vonofakos of VRAI Interior Architecture.

The Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LECTURES will be held in Saal Europa (Hall 4.0, Foyer) of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre and begin at 15.00 hrs on 22 June 2022. Members of the chambers of architects and urban planners will receive qualification credits for taking part.

Hospitality Trends meet Sustainability

What will tomorrow’s sustainable hotel room look like? At the Heimtextil Summer Special, the Heimtextil ‘Sleep & More’ conference will discuss how the green future of the hotel bed could and should appear under the motto ‘Hospitality Trends meet Sustainability’. In Hall 3.0, experts will spotlight hospitality trends regarding sustainability and thus provide valuable orientation for decision makers from the hotel business. In keynote lectures and discussions, hospitality and sustainability experts, such as bed expert Jens Rosenbaum, will bundle the collective knowledge of the sector and generate new inspiration and exciting impulses for the audience.

Powerful synergies: Heimtextil Summer Special, Techtextil and Texprocess

For the first and only time this June, the Heimtextil Summer Special is being held concurrently with the Techtextil and Texprocess trade fairs. After a two-year, pandemic-related pause, this trio of events offers an important and highly efficient overview of global trends, products and innovations. Likely to be of particular interest to Heimtextil visitors are the synergistic effects generated by Techtextil, which presents not only textile innovations with functionalities relevant for use in public rooms, care facilities and the foodservice sector but also developments in the context of a sustainable recycling economy. Over 1,300 exhibitors from 53 countries are taking part in the Techtextil and Texprocess trade fairs. Messe Frankfurt expects to welcome more than 950 companies from 49 countries as exhibitors at the Heimtextil Summer Special.

The Heimtextil Summer Special takes place from 21 to 24 June 2022.
