Ambiente 2014

ON343 - MAY/2014

Ambiente 2014, the international benchmark fair for all products relating to the table, kitchen, homeware, gift and decoration articles as well as proposals for the home and decoration accessories, was held in Frankfurt from 7 to 11 February. The encounter has attracted more than 4700 exhibitors from more than 80 countries and 144,000 specialised buyers from 140 different nationalities, bringing visitors the new trends in colour, shapes, materials and prints through four very different stage settings: Whimsical, Exquisite, Return to Origins and Functionality.

Japan was the guest country at this edition, where it has presented to the world the less-well-known face of the country of the rising sun through a varied programme that combined traditional crafts with modern design in many cases influenced by pop culture. The organisation has announced that the United States will be the guest country at the next edition.

In support of novice designers, the Talents fostering programme has offered more than 18 young designers, design students and graduates from 11 different countries the opportunity to present their proposals and ideas for products, characterised by a mixture of creative spontaneity and conceptual cohesion approached from an artistic perspective.

In addition, prizes have been awarded to the most innovative products for the kitchen and home, on this occasion clearly committed to mobility with products for storage and food transport, plus others that offer simple yet smart benefits outside the home, from magnetised bicycle lights to automatic self-inflating laptop bags.
