Interior Lifestyle Tokyo to celebrate its 25th edition

Interior Lifestyle Tokyo has started preparing for its 25th edition, to be held from 10–12th June 2015 at Tokyo Big Sight. This fair not only exhibits high-end products and attracts key design experts from around the world, but also addresses trends and new lifestyle ideas. Together with its sister fair IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is based on two of Messe Frankfurt’s largest annual fairs in Frankfurt, Germany: Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles, held every January; and Ambiente, the world’s largest consumer goods fair, held every February. Through Messe Frankfurt’s global network, the fair has been successfully supporting those who are seeking to enter the international market.

In 2014, the fair welcomed record-breaking participation of 819 exhibitors (domestic 607, overseas 212) from 27 countries and regions, and showcased a variety of quality lifestyle products. Also, a record of 27,543 visitors (domestic 26,961, overseas 582) from 33 countries and regions attended, proving that the fair has established itself as a useful platform for buyers and sellers involved in the worldwide consumer goods industry.

In order to further enhance the fair’s brand, the 2015 edition of Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is planning trend-setting highlights and events to create new business opportunities. Visitors will find a wide range of inspiring products on display at the popular Atrium, including Japanese artisanal skills with a modern touch in the Japan Style section, the latest designs in the Movement area, as well as work from up-and-coming young designers in the Talents and Next zones, and innovative dining items in the Kitchen Life area. Furthermore, for products that are as stylish as they are functional, visitors can count on finding what they need in areas such as Home, Accent and Everyday. Fresh designs from emerging countries will be at the Global section, while the most popular Scandinavian brands can be found at the Nordic Lifestyle area.

The Atrium will also highlight one of the most anticipated showcases at Interior Lifestyle Tokyo, Curation store, which will present themed exhibits. This year’s theme supports the development of stores designed on the aesthetic, cultural and intellectual perspectives of ‘curators’ who sell merchandise in attractive museum shops.
