There is a growing desire for something individual or custom-made, especially in the interior sphere, too, and this will, in my opinion, emerge even more in the future. Thus, the subject of ‘customisation’ is spot on for Heimtextil 2018.

Tamara Pallasch, Pallasch interior design

Customization is growing in significance at the interface between manufacturers and changing consumer expectations. New technical developments promote personal expression and participation in the design of individualised goods and products.
