03-05-2017 in Press Release

Trendease will be partnering with MoOD again in 2017 adding to the growing design ecosystem; this year we bring innovation and technology to the forefront with MoOD Innovation and MoOD Tech.  After tripling the size of the Launch Pad in 2016 we aim to bring the same level of inspiration and new talent to the bis sheds and plan to kick off a fundraiser on Kickstarter to help finance nominees with strong projects and financial need.

There is a strong focus on material, technique, and process.  MoOD Innovation will contain the long-standing Innovation Platform with a selection of first-time exhibitors who produce novel materials for interior application.  For MoOD Tech we have a number of state-of-the-art exhibitors working with cutting-edge technologies such as conductive embroidery and yarns (suppliers to help to manufacture heated sofas, LED curtains, or floor covering assisted well-being).  MoOD Tech will also house digital printers, software, and service providers.  We are honored to have Big Impact, the digital print avant-gardist and expert in textiles and wallcoverings, after innovating through field trials and operating the first machine commercially worldwide, the company will initiate the exclusive launch of Haptic 2.5D Textural Printing at MoOD.

Visitors have a chance to attend specialist talks in the seminar theater.  The speaker lineup already includes David Scott’s “Where’s Your Head At?  How BeYonder’s Hat & Soul brand emerged in response to the mostly unseen waste fabric mountains our industry is creating (and needs to deal with)”, Melanie Hoerr’s “Technical Embroidery: A Versatile Opportunity for Textiles”, Sven Boehmer who will speak about the world of smart textiles, and more will be added to the roster.  On September 8th ZSK will host a complimentary workshop on conductive embroidery at its stand. Additionally there will be interactive displays and fresh feature areas, including a pop-up shop.
