HUB Interior Festival – Experiencing Live New Perspectives and Trends

Interprint Establishes a Hub for the Design Community

The 'HUB' Interprint Interior Festival will celebrate its premiere in Essen in a few weeks from now. With 'HUB', Interprint is establishing a unique hub for the Design Community. A festival that illustrates the endless possibilities of the interior design worlds and offers new perspectives and much opportunity for exchanging information over two days. "We are currently in the crucial phase of its implementation," said Salvatore Figliuzzi, Interprint's Marketing & Design Director. "Great partners, a cool line-up and, above all, mega topics that support our décors await the festival visitors."


There will be much to discover on two storeys in Essen on 14 and 15 November: From the latest décors, colours and trends, material worlds and décor insights to live activities in the Makers Area. The interior trends in the surface segment can be experienced on many different materials: decorative paper, finish foil or thermoplastic film, furniture edge banding or in the form of Embossed-in-Register (EIR) textures. Interprint will showcase them in co-operation with the festival's partner companies, Tech­no­cell, Flai, Hornschuch, Hueck, MKT, Rehau and Sesa.


Top speakers await the festival guests with inspiring topics on the main stage. Salvatore Figliuzzi: "It was important to us to invite a range of speakers who cover the diversity of the interior design industry. They include not only trend scouts of the furniture industry and renowned design studios but also colour design experts and interior bloggers. They all have different perspectives and examine different facets of interior design. And it goes without saying that the Interprint design team will also be on stage as speakers."


So much creativity input obviously requires a suitable location. The cube-shaped Sanaa building on the site of the Zeche Zollverein colliery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provides a deliberate architectural counterpoint to the industrial building ensemble in the neighbourhood. The Federation of German Architects (Bund Deutscher Archi­tekten - BDA) awarded its Architecture Prize in the Best Urban Planning Symbolism category to this building in 2010. From Interprint's point of view, it is a location that could not be more suitable for the Interior Festival. 


Interprint expects well over 250 companies on the two days so there will be plenty of networking opportunities. And that is exactly the central idea behind the festival: Salvatore Figliuzzi: "Our motivation is to bring together people who have an influence on interior design. However, not just as an audience but also as team players, unconventional thinkers and networkers. Completely in line with the motto: Everybody gives, everybody takes, everybody benefits."
