Ambiente trends for 2013: atmosphere of well-being and natu-ralness in demand

"Welcome to the jungle". This is the title under which the consumer-goods trends for the 2013 season will be presented. The trend scouts from renowned design consultants bora.herke.palmisano, who have offices in Frankfurt and Berlin, will lead you on a safe path through this jungle of different styles.

Ambiente Trendshow 2012

For Ambiente 2013, they have distilled a variety of international influences from the worlds of product design, fashion, architecture and art into four overall trends. Within these trends, the design team will provide some concrete examples of the new colours, shapes, patterns and materials that the future holds: "There is a deep-seated desire to give expression to feelings, emotions and one’s own personality. Hence, we want to present the new season’s trends from the individual’s point of view. At the same time, however, there is a desire for well-being, for peace and quiet, which is reflected by a yearning for nature”, says Claudia Herke from design consultants bora.herke.palmisano.

The expert trend consultants at bora.herke.palmisano will be staging the four overall trends in a display in Galleria 1 and will bring the various styles tangibly to life, using several hundred products from the Ambiente exhibitors' latest collections. The four trends, "blossom field", "classic ground", "eccentric domain" and "contrasting sphere" give an overview of the key styles in the world of consumer goods.

Just how easily the contrasts between poetry and practicality can sit side by side is shown by "blossom field". Romantic floral patterns in pastel shades, playful shapes and delicate materials go hand in hand with understated modernity. This includes home textiles with graphic patterns and clear stripes, lattice structures and chrome. The colour palette ranges from intense rose-red to delicate pastel shades with black and white providing a neutral counterpoint. With "classic ground", an elegant urban lifestyle is characterised by the use of traditional, high-quality designs that, with tasteful arrangements, manage to create a tidy, comfortable ambience. Rich orange and cool blue deliberately disrupt the neutrality of greys and browns, lending a touch of retro and that certain extra something. The "eccentric domain" trend is all about extravagance, decadence and glamour: decorative shapes, unusual patterns, extraordinary surface effects and extravagant accents in pink, jade and plum. The antique and the surreal are combined with one another with amused and amusing detachment. With "contrasting sphere", there is a captivating contrast between dry, porous textures and brilliant gloss. Colours of the desert range from light sandy colours and golden ochres to dark brown. Natural materials, traditional hand-crafted work and innovative high-tech processes create an atmosphere full of tension, an effect that is both familiar and futuristic at one and the same time.

Exclusive lectures at Ambiente on current trends The impressively staged display in Galleria 1 provides an identifiable picture of the four overall trends.
