Heimtextil : Home textiles F/W 2009-10
today Aug 27, 2009
Anne Marie Commandeur of the stijlinstituut amsterdam developed the concept for the Trend Book and the creation of the installation in the Trend Forum at Heimtextil , which is a major international trade fair for home textiles and contract business. Under the umbrella of "Expect The Unexpected," trends ranging from Enchanted to Time Traveler provide a preview of home textile trends that reconsider established concepts for today's market.
Only the finest treasures of the past are kept and covered in patina or shiny new coatings, embellished or embroidered, to set the stage for our reclaimed cultural heritage. Cherishing decorative art from deco to nouveau and embracing intricate detailing for the ultimate luxury.
The all-seeing eye tells of fortune and fame found in chaos and eccentricity. In a world where all cultures collide and yesterday spills into tomorrow, the vagabond, bohemian and free spirit rule. Eco and ethnic folks break all the rules and create a rainbow of new ethics and traditions.
Continuously intrigued by the sharp edges and seductive shimmer of metals and stones, extra dimensions are added to all new shapes around. In every angle, facet and curve, sculptural aspects rely on architectural influences. Playing a mathematical game with optical illusions builds a solid, but surreal construction.
The mystical aspects of nature are re-explored for acts of mimicry in man-made animal skin, hair, fur and feathers. Organic surfaces like moss-covering and tree bark inspire to create natural textures with eroded, weathered and frozen qualities. Combined with vintage and recycled fabrics in hybrids of nature, craft and technology.
A fantasy world of plastic, bubble and pop comes to life through a fascinating and playful concoction of art, science and technology, going far beyond the range of normal human imagination. A comic chaos where all the rules are cast aside and bad taste no longer exists.
High technologies for featherweight padding, layering and folding create an illusion of mass and bulk. Play a game of hide and seek behind delicately woven drapes and move around freely in layer upon layer of breezy mille-feuilles and soft, structured folds for a natural human beauty. A sculptured volume.
