Notable Shapes trend

International consumer goods trade fair Ambiente has announced that the Trend Bureau will deliver a presentation on the 2017 trends.

Taking place during the Ambiente show from 10-14 February 2017, trend consultants will discuss four categories including ‘delicate structures’, ‘honest materials’, ‘jumbled patterns’ and ‘notable shapes’, with the notion of ‘sustainably inspiring’ becoming a leitmotif for the 2017 Ambiente trends.

In creating the four scenarios, the trend experts will have selected products from the collections of almost 4,400 Ambiente exhibitors, bringing the trends of the future to life with actual examples.

Annetta Palmisano from the bora.herke.palmisano Trend Bureau, said: “The four styles bring together the key features that will inspire the new season in 2017. On the one hand, importance is given to shapes and textures that are inspired by nature and are reflected in a relatively discreet approach to design; on the other hand, there is a focus on a degree of care and a certain credibility in the way materials are handled, with a view to creating good quality, genuinely authentic products.”

The four trend scenarios will be presented in the special display in Galleria 1 throughout Ambiente and in exclusive lectures for the wholesale and retail trade at 12pm and 3:00pm in the ‘Symmetrie’ room in Hall 8.1.

This year saw 4,400 exhibitors showcase their new products and innovations for the coming season to 137,000 trade visitors from almost 150 countries, with 2017 expected to be just as successful.
