Trend Forum Function & Components: Rethink Furniture – Less, but Better

“Rethink Furniture – Less, but Better” is the title of an interzum 2025 special event jointly conceived with the trade fair’s partner byform Produktdesign.

Trend Forum Function & Components

In an age in which volume-driven and fully automated production processes dominate the market, interzum will consciously provide a counterpoint with the Trend Forum Function & Components.

Embracing the principle “less, but better”, it follows the call from designer Dieter Rams and promotes responsible planning, development and production. Rethinking is an essential part of this: Established product processes must change.

Five themed areas showcasing a smart “less”

Divided into various areas and accompanied by real-world applications, the special event presents the topics that are decisive to creating a functioning circular economy. It covers every aspect, from digital applications harnessing developments in AI to sharing concepts all the way through to analyses of new technologies. The entire special event focuses on potential changes in the sphere of products.

It is organised into five themed areas, each illustrated with innovative exhibits:

  1. Rethink Furniture in Digital Systems
  2. Rethink Furniture with Circular Design
  3. Rethink Furniture in Use and Reuse
  4. Rethink Furniture with New Technology
  5. Rethink Furniture with Tradition & Technology

Be inspired by new ideas at interzum 2025: Discover solutions for sustainable and innovative furniture design following the principle “less, but better”.
