Den internationale designmesse for møbler, mode og smykker
 

The unique charm of blickfang always was based on the chance to meet the creators behind the various products and to be able to buy everything directly at the boothes. Design orientated consumers, designers and tradesmen can come together to sample the newest and most innovative trends. Bringing all these groups together at the «point of sale» is an important factor in the blickfang concept. The interaction is also important for the designers who get the unique possibility to sell their products directly eliminating the middle man and to get a first hand look at how their products are accepted on the open market. Blickfang has established itself as an annual event over the past twenty years in Zurich, Stuttgart, Basel, Hamburg and Vienna and will this year celebrate its premiere in Hamburg from the 12th until the 14th of October at the Deichtorhallen and in the Scandinavian hotspot Copenhagen from the 9th until the 11th of November at the Øksnehallen.

 

blickfang - your design shopping event

 

Today's consumer is discriminating and critical. He wants to be entertained and inspired in many senses. In a world of global brands and uniformed offers, he is looking for something individual, something very unique: however, objects that speak for his personal lifestyle. This is exactly what the blickfang Company wanted to realize when first organizing the design trade show in Stuttgart, Germany. The idea was to present new and exciting products from many facets of lifestyle such as fashion, jewellery, accessories and interior design all together in one inspiring and curated environment.

 

 

How do you experience the blickfang, Sebastian Wrong?

 

The world-renowned industrial designer Sebastian Wrong is the blickfang curator of the year - but what does that actually mean? How does he experience the blickfang design shopping events? And which memories does he link to the blickfang design workshop in Boisbuchet this summer? Well, we asked him! By the way, you get the chance to meet him, too: He is going to attend our very first blickfang design shopping event in Munich! Sebastian will spend the entire Friday  with us, so just walk up to him.

 

Rebecca Nielsen fra det danske smykkebrand RebeccaRebecca: ”Vi elsker blickfang. Stemningen var helt perfekt. Vi har solgt supermeget og nydt hver en dag på blickfang.”

Stine Ladefoget fra modebrandet af samme navn: ”Jeg har været på mange messer i Øksnehallen, men jeg kan helt klart bedst lide blickfang. Jeg har ikke alene kunnet sælge direkte, men er også nået ud til mange nye folk, der ikke kendte til brandet før.”

 

blickfang lokkede 7.000 besøgende til Øksnehallen!

 

Den internationale design- og shoppingmesse blickfang i København tog i den forløbne weekend (15.-17. november) mod hele 7.000 gæster. 110 designere inden for områderne møbler, mode og smykker præsenterede og solgte for anden gang deres aktuelle kollektioner og produkter. Jennifer Reaves, adm. dir. for blickfang siger: ”Jeg er meget begejstret over blickfangs succes i år. De fyldte gange, de utallige samtaler, som udstillerne har haft med messegæster, og de mange glade ansigter, der strålede mig imøde under messen, fylder mig med stor glæde og stolthed. København har på blot to år etableret sig som fast location for blickfang.”

 

Ionie Chamilaki and Titia Dane aka IOIA received the MINI Design Award for their colorful jewelry made of coated foam. “We were impressed by the originality of your idea”, as Rasmus Storm says, “and would like to encourage you to keep on working with it. You can truly compare your design ideas with jewelry designers working for big fashion labels.”
Maria Bruun received the MINI design award for her bended mirror collection made of high polished metal. Torsten Dam summarized: “It’s amazing how the mirror, flowing around corners, can change an entire room. It’s not only design, but almost a piece of art. On the same time, the mirror reinterprets ancient Danish handicrafts by using bended metal instead of glass. The materials is a reminder of the last century. But the style is absolutely modern.”

And the MINI Design Award winners are ...

 

It’s never easy for our MINI Design Award jury to select the best of the best among our exhibitors. It was especially difficult for Mette Hay, Frederik Lentz Andersen, Rasmus Storm and Torsten Dam yesterday. They had a long discussion who they should give the design awards to: The ones presenting a wholesome, perfect collection, or the ones who are tackling something entirely new? But finally they agreed upon two winners. And gave the MINI Design Award to IOIA and bruun design!
