There is a broad and diverse range of new surfaces available for furniture and interior design. The upcoming interzum trade fair offers an exclusive overview for those looking for help navigating the growing number of new products. Numerous exhibitors will be presenting their latest products and innovations here. In addition, the trade fair is, once again, dedicating a special event to the topic of surfaces. The “Surfaces & Wood Design” piazza in Hall 06.1 will be highlighting how innovative surface materials broaden the range of options available to the industry. Trendsetting developments for interior architecture and furniture design are bundled in one area here.

The “Surfaces & Wood Design” piazza is curated by the interior architect and trend expert Katrin de Louw. With her agency Trendfilter® she has already been responsible for a special exhibition on the topic of surfaces at the last edition of interzum. “Our aim is to make it possible for people to experience the manufacturers’ latest developments at first hand, and to focus in particular on the most important from the great quantity of new developments,” says Katrin de Louw. To achieve this, she has further developed the area’s workshop feel: steel reinforcement mesh is used to stage the exhibits with a cool and casual look. Around large tables, visitors can experience and touch samples and prototypes, and gain a concentrated insight into the huge range of possibilities that the latest carrier materials and surfaces offer customers.

The piazza is divided into sections addressing the key words “Sustainability”, “Customized”, “Haptic”, “Lightweight”, “Digital Printing”, “Anti-Fingerprint” and “Wood & Stones”. It is not just wood and materials that are presented at the special exhibition, but also related product groups such as furniture handles or upholstery and décor fabrics. With the presentation/lecture stage now moved to Hall 04.2, the special event is now also significantly bigger compared to interzum 2017 – allowing visitors to experience even more of the great diversity of cutting-edge carrier materials and surfaces at the special exhibition and at the specialist presentations by renowned experts.
