Tendence 2017 in Frankfurt showed what is ‘in’

Materials that look natural like wood, willow, rattan and linen are combined with brass, copper, silver, gold and glass. At the same time, in the juxtaposition of opposites, matte, textured, highly polished and natural surfaces play off against one another. And we see a mix of perforation and patterns that draw their inspiration from nature, as well as used and ethno looks. The targeted use of concrete, for example, lends definite contemporary perspectives. Inspiration drawn from a variety of styles flashes between them, including Art Deco, the 1950s and Memphis. On the one hand, the colours that dominate are a powdery rosé and mint tones; on the other, we find a whole series of blues and greens. A sunshine yellow provides summery accents.


Style conscious

‘Hygge’ continues to be a major theme: in this relaxed, often restrained and soigné style, the clean lines draw attention to the quality of the material and workmanship. At the same time, large-scale leaf motifs unfold into luxuriant jungles. Buddhas, bamboo and sandy colours add a touch of the exotic. Solid barbecues and robust outdoor cooking gear make a masculine statement, as does outdoor furniture in concrete. Seating, tables and lights appear to come straight from the workshop or the factory and display coarse fittings such as rivets and brackets.
