Katrin de Louw to design the ZOW_trend exhibition space
Social trends and technical innovations have a key impact on the way in which we live and how we furnish our homes. Current trends such as digitalisation and interconnectivity are also reflected in the design of interiors and furniture as well as the corresponding materials and surfaces. As a trend scout and proprietor of the agency Trendfilter, Katrin de Louw has set herself the task of recognising these trends. The interior designer will be styling the special exhibition space in Hall 20 at ZOW 2016, where she will be showcasing social trends which are set to have a major influence on our lives in the coming years and which will thus also have an effect on furniture design. "In addition to innovative new products, inspiring ideas and projects from institutes of higher education will also be presented", states Katrin de Louw. "By doing so, we will provide visitors from industry, design and interior design with extensive information on sustainable product development as well as significant value added in keeping with the ZOW motto 'One idea ahead'."
