For the 10th year in a row MoOD+Indigo 2018 again turned out to be the ideal place to meet for interior decoration professionals. In the urban setting of Tour & Taxis visitors and exhibitors enjoyed the necessary time and comfort to discuss business.
This 10th edition of MoOD+Indigo was celebrated with an exclusive night for exhibitors and visitors. None other than visionary artist Daan Roosegaarde gave a keynote speech that turned out to be more than inspiring. Roosegaarde combines his research of landscapes, interiors and exteriors of the future with technology and design. “Innovation always starts with imagination. Creativity is the new capital…”
The high quality level of the MoOD exhibitors was accentuated by the annual Blue Drop Award selection. Trend coach Niek De Prest explained the different trends that caught the jury’s eye: Bouclé, Sensory, Green colours, Mixed materials, Green & yellow, Shiny & effects, Outdoor and Cultural appropriation.
The Blue Drop Award winners are:
– Most Promising Collection: Algemene Two (BE)
– Best Upholstery: Velvetex (IT)
– Best Window Covering Award: G.M. Fabrics (IN)
– Best Launch Pad Award: Megan Brown (UK) (presented by Trendease International)
Niek’s trend blog was translated into a presentation called the Next Wave visualising the trends for the coming years. For this an impressive moveable construction conceived by Konligo, a Belgian start-up, was used.
The innovation platform has become an established value over the past years thanks to the inspiring collections of MaterialDistrict, Colour Hive, Material Lab, Trendease International and Linen Dream Lab.
This edition of the show can be seen as the launch pad for a new era. 2019 will see the first edition of MoOD+Indigo that will be organised from A to Z by Easyfairs. A fresh start with new means and an even stronger expertise in the field. September 2019 will be a month to look forward to. See you at Tour & Taxis on 10, 11 and 12 September.
