Heimtextil brings together exhibitors and customers from various target groups. Three themed specialist programmes provide orientation and information. The exhibitor catalogue for special interest programmes list exhibitors that offer products for contract business, small product volumes and sustainable products.
Architects, interior architects, hospitality experts and interior designers come to Frankfurt to see the worlds’ biggest selection of contract textiles. There, around 500 of the 3,000 Heimtextil exhibitors from all over the world present their product portfolios. Under the title ‘Interior.Architecture.Hospitality’, Heimtextil concentrates the spectrum of products and information for this area of application. With the Contract Guide, you have a complete overview of all exhibitors offering contract textiles and furnishing solutions.
The overall design concept of the ‘Interior.Architecture.Hospitality’ expo in Hall 4.2 draws its inspiration from ‘Furoshiki’, a Japanese tradition in which a square cloth is used for wrapping or carrying items. ‘Furoshiki’ is an ancient tradition that makes use of simple cloths. The basis for the many different knotting and folding techniques is a square piece of cloth measuring 70 x 70 to 100 x 100 cm.
Traditional examples show the spectrum of uses to which these cloths can be put, e.g., as decorative gift wrapping, a practical shoulder bag, protection for a valuable item or simply a way of transporting something, whereby the square piece of cloth remains unchanged – reusable in every way and sustainable.
A must-see in Hall 4.2 for interior architects, hospitality experts and designers. The latest design and functional solutions for textile contract furnishing are presented in an exclusive exhibition format especially for the contract sector. A new feature of particular interest for the hotel industry is the expansion of the product portfolio for the bedding sector.
