ew year, new style. The latest edition of HOMI, the Lifestyle Trade Fair supported by Fiera Milano, is planned from 25th to the 28th January 2019. This is the perfect place to find the latest products in home décor such as tableware, extraordinary gift ideas, room fragrances, tiny smart objects for the study and original decorations for special occasions.
Objects, textiles, decorations, tableware, as well as superior quality handmade objects and the latest seasonal trends: HOMI illustrates the way in which contemporary life is changing, transforming the home in a manifesto of ideas, dreams and emotions, in a combination of timeless styles and tastes.
We are able to disclose that artistic artefacts (part of HOMI Creazioni) are one of the main additions this year. Centre stage is the Italian manufacturing tradition with an eye towards a more natural, organic and semi-wild dimension. Nature in fact, inspires shapes and colours and the home revisits in a modern key the raw materials of times gone by such as wood, terracotta, leather and artificial materials too. Inspired by natural fibres, they decorate plates with the shades of the sea, outlines the dolomites with sharp knives, invent extraordinary curved objects, paint lamps with natural colour palettes and suggest experimental ideas that anticipate the styles of tomorrow.
Home textiles however, are veritable canvases you add your personal taste too, whether in the kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom, whereas home fragrance suit your present mood and personality.
As always, HOMI hosts talks, events and workshops for the professionals of the field, as well as purposely built spaces such as the HOMI Hybrid Lounge that analyses the innovative materials employed in interior design. Besides, HOMI Trends showcases the three main trends for 2019: Code Create inspired by the smart return of nature, as well as Designing Emotion that introduces a more human type of technology and Empower Up, in other words gaining awareness of the main collective problems such as environmental sustainability.
As customary, HOMI hosts Festivity (from the 23rd to the 27th January 2019) that focuses on special occasions and festivities. This year too in fact, HOMI includes a diverse range of products: from collections by the most important brands in the field to innovative designs by emerging new start-ups, once again contemporary living takes centre stage.
