Snapshot of trends Page 2 This year, too, interzum is again providing the industry with an overview of the global trends: • The lightweight construction board is coming. Joining and fastening systems are ready for the market, thus leading to the expectation of a significant increase in the use of lightweight honeycomb sandwich board and furniture produced from this. Lightweight furniture is sturdy, resource-conserving and easy to transport. Added to this, it is totally in fashion with its chunky appearance. • More and more materials are suitable for printing on. Be it wood-based panels, mineral-based panels or glass surfaces, the specialists have succeeded in developing printing techniques that can are also suitable for very small production runs. The trend towards individualisation in our society increases the need for variety. Thus, you can expect to see individual cupboard surfaces sporting a favourite motif or wall panelling bearing a company logo. • On a more general note, particular attention is being paid in all supplier sectors of the furniture industry to resource conservation and sustainability. The target group interested in ecology is growing. The arrival of the energy-saving LED lamp in the interior design and furniture industry is entirely in keeping with this. • The interzum exhibitors are presenting their visions for the furniture of tomorrow and beyond. Electric motors constitute an important element in this regard. Be this in the form of a motor used for opening drawers or a motor used in adjustable upholstered furniture, all developments promise enhanced convenience and comfort for end customers.
