Textile innovations to be revealed at Heimtextil

What are the key challenges in contract design, and what do future-proof textile solutions look like? International trade fair for home and contract textiles, Heimtextil, promises to provide answers to these questions, when it returns to Messe Frankfurt from 9-12th January 2024 with its Interior.Architecture.Hospitality programme.

The format will now be even more extensive and international. In addition to numerous high-profile Talks & Tours, the Library is set to be a key tool for experts from the fields of architecture, interior design and hospitality.

In 2024, the curated Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Library will present innovative functional textiles from selected exhibitors, with a focus on flame-retardant, sound-absorbing, lightfast, antimicrobial, dirt-repellent and scrub-resistant properties.

"As the challenges in architecture increase, so do the demands on textile solutions. This makes it all the more important to me that the innovations from Heimtextil exhibitors continue to inspire me”, says Jasmin Grego, one of the members of the feature's jury. 

Heimtextil's director, Bettina Bär, adds: "We are observing two strong trends that are leading to an increased need for information and networking in the contract sector: On the one hand, the requirements for the design of hotels, public buildings, care facilities, restaurants or offices are increasing in terms of sustainability and legal requirements are also playing an increasing role in the selection of suitable textiles. On the other hand, modern textiles are becoming more and more efficient and are therefore also taking on new key functions such as sound insulation, fire protection and hygiene. Both developments are reflected in our Interior.Architecture.Hospitality programme."

A total of over 2600 global exhibitors will present their innovations at Heimtextil, including numerous companies with special products for contract business, which can be found easily via the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Finder.

Together with renowned partners, Heimtextil will also presents high-quality lectures and themed tours on all four days of the fair, including Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More, where sleep experts will share insights and best practices.
