„MATERIALS . SPACE . IDENTITY – As an interior designer I am constantly searching for new and surprising combinations and applications of materials. Surface structures have their own specific characteristics and make a noticeable difference in a visual and physical way. They give each space its own identity. Innovations@Domotex presents a selection of the latest technology and surfaces in the field of floor covering. Together with you and the manufactures, I will discuss the special features of the products on show and find out how they affect their look and feel as well as their application and durability. ” Lien Tran

A wealth of new products and technologies from the world of floors once again awaits architects, interior designers and designers in January 2017 at the DOMOTEX trade fair in Hannover. To make sure that you quickly find the topics relevant for design and planning in a clearly accessible way, World-Architects again offers practice-oriented “Guided Tours” of the trade fair in the scope of Innovations@DOMOTEX, which are this time complemented by «Themed Tours». However, before we start on 14 January 2017, a brief warm-up is, of course, necessary.
