The talk by trend expert Katrin de Louw filters current design, materials and social trends for the furnishings industry and provides an overview of the key drivers that are set to influence furniture design in coming years. Examining trends from the perspective of the furniture industries’ supplying sections and the materials industry, she presents a comprehensive cross section – from short-term design trends to the long-term, social and technical currents from which tomorrow’s furniture will emerge.
