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.

 

For this special exhibition, blickfang has selected four renowned personalities from the design scene who then choose young talents involved in furniture design. We are looking forward to: Scholten & Baijings, our Curators of the Year, Hansjerg Maier-Aichen, professor at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, Poul Madsen and the jury of the design report award. 

We are already curious to see the innovative and inspiring products which they will select.

With the carpenting skills he refined at a Portuguese boat manufacturer, Raphael builds bicycle frames out of 36 layers of wood. If you still don’t quite trust this idea, come and have a look – or maybe even a ride – on blickfang Basel 24 | 25 | 26 April.

 

36 layers

 

In the first moment, it seems like a weird idea to manufacture a bicycle frame out of wood. But on the second thought, it’s pretty clever: wood can take more strain than metal; flaws can be fixed; and state-of-the-art UV lacquers can protect it from the weather. That’s what Raphael Much figured out when founding his start up company lj bicycles.

There’s probably one thing that might be more exciting than a beautiful décolleté – and that’s a woman’s back. That is, if it’s shown off with a deep neckline and maybe accessorized with an elie bra. While gemstones sparkle along your spine, high quality cups will keep your front comfortably fitted.
