After its enforced break, Ambient returns for 2023 with retailers, designers and professional buyers yearning, more than ever before, for a physical live experience. As a source for inspiration, the fair maps the changes in markets with an eye on the future. It is a meeting place for buyers and retailers; an opportunity for interior designers to scout for new features for hotel, restaurant and co-working spaces; and a chance to experience high-quality design, furnishing concepts and the latest trends in person.

These explore major themes such as sustainability, new work and digital expansion of trade and future retail. For 2023, the future of work is a key focus, as work-life balance from the pandemic continues to reshape our home interiors and the resurgence of offices.

three trend worlds for future inspiration

Three trend worlds stimulate creativity, foresight into projects and new perspectives at the fair. Trend bureau bora.herke.palmisano identifies movements in the design industry, particularly focused on sustainability and material research, new aesthetic solutions, craftsmanship and digital innovations in 2023.

Three trend worlds, identified by bora.herke.palmisano, aim to stimulate creativity and foresight into projects

The first of three trend worlds, called unknown beauty_strange + gracious, reflects a familiar living environment that combines unconventional, unexpected creations. Intense, extravagant colors pair with soft, shimmering tones to give shapes and surfaces an element of abstraction. It highlights the dissolution of analogue and digital.

nature_careful + pleasant, the second trend, uses organic shapes, gentle colors and careful use of resources to create spaces with the calming power of nature. The life cycles of materials act as a source of inspiration as new products and solutions arise from waste matter. Natural tones – cool greens, neutral stone and warm clay – dresses the exhibition.

The third trend, lasting ideas_passionate + evocative, recalls classic design icons but in new reinterpretations for the modern day. Icons become fundamentally new thanks to striking shapes and strong colors, like petrol blue and warm orange. Alternative materials are also highlighted. The display showcases how these design classics are as functional as they are aesthetical.
