Are you down to earth? In that case the third theme of the Formex fair will fit you perfectly.
“Down to Earth” by Jan Rundgren is just that, with this trend he looks to the landscape and nature both when it comes to the materials and colors. Traditional crafts, ecological materials and ethnic patterns. Stone, leather, paper etc are materials found within this trend.
Metals have been very popular and this trend does not seem to die down. Copper has been the main trend during the past seasons , but now gold and brass are taking over more and more.
The down to earth and back to the basics I personally think that we see more and more in other areas as well, the wood toys for kids are coming back, we buy more things secondhand, wood furniture, ecological food etc. It looks like the world perhaps is getting sick of the plastic and poisonous materials. Better for us and better for the nature.
