Furoshiki

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.
