Young designers to exhibit at Ambiente

32 newcomers from Argentina, Germany, Finland, India, Japan, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Taiwan, Hungary and the US, will show innovative design approaches for contemporary living environments.

Julia Uherek, vice president consumer goods fairs, commented: “Design makes an important contribution to solving the great challenges of our time. Intelligent and at the same time emotional design with a sense of purpose and a message – long-lasting and recyclable – is more important than ever.

“With our Talents programme, selected designers have the chance to present their individual approaches on a prominent platform in the direct competitive environment, to send messages and to network internationally.”

Back to nature is the overarching theme of this year’s Talents in Hall 12.1. 10 participants will present 2023 tableware and accessories trends, which, through new and rediscovered materials, as well as familiar elements in new contexts, broaden the view for the undiscovered.

Biophilia – Migration of Matter, is a collaboration of two artists, Cindy Valdez and Nicholas Perillo. The collection features 3D-printed artefacts taking inspiration from living organisms with the message ‘Times are changing and it is time to give our biodiversity the importance it deserves’.

Designer and glassblower Saara Korppi from Finland will be exhibiting handmade unique glass pieces including 30s Cognac and wine glasses as well as the Wildwild Twist Bowl are made from recycled glass using old glassblowing techniques.

Pei-An Lin, Taiwanese designer will exhibit the Reef project using the beauty of natural objects to make decorative design objects.

The Talents promotional programmes allows students and graduates to demonstrate their skills every year and network with manufacturers, dealers and the international design scene. Messe Frankfurt provides them with support with practical aspects and PR support, as well as a complementary trade fair appearance.
