Floor Story


January is traditionally trade fair month, with Heimtextil in Frankfurt, domotex in Hanover, imm-cologne and Maison&Objet in Paris to name but a few. They seem to follow one after another in quick succession, with some of them even overlapping. Each fair is a feast for the eyes, but with so much to see, it is often difficult to take a step back to find the inspiration that you are looking for. I tend to pick one subject and use that as my "search filter", and this year I was concentrating on structures and graphic shapes. To find and recognise them, I have to shut my mind off to the colours. The output this January was enormous, and I was lucky enough to come across a wide variety of wonderful shapes. Implementing them in my work, however, will require even more inspiration on my part…
