International design exhibition for interior, fashion and jewellery
 

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.

 

Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings established their eponymous studio Scholten & Baijings in 2000, and are now widely regarded as of one of the most exciting, innovative and dynamic design duos in Europe. Renowned for their sensitive and subtle yet functional products, their striking and often unexpected use of colour and their exquisitely crafted objects, they have applied their distinctive style to everything from ceramics and silverware to textiles and even a concept car.
