Most of us own some products that we have inherited from our previous generations. We keep them with us with care but don’t find a prospect to display or make use of them as they don’t go with today’s trends. The trend Mix Mash by Heimtextil Trends 2011/2012, brings alive the use of those traditional and old products in a new way. Mixing a lot of patterns, colors, designs and styles seems to be the newest trend today.
Products that are traditional are stylized in a fresh way with a trendy approach. This gives us a chance to create patterns, prints and fabrics with an ethnic and cultural influence from around the world. Designs with such distinct global flair are being created today to invite novelty in products and ambience where they are put to use.
Mix Mash also stands for a combination of production techniques from various countries to create products with various skills and expertise. This enables the use of the emotional strength and tradition expertise along with innovation and efficient functionality in a successful combination of high tech and craftsmanship while a product is being designed and created.
This trend defines four themes to work on the concept of High Tech with Craftsmanship and New with Old.
The theme EXPERIMENTAL talks about eccentric and unusual methods of creating a pattern. It includes a lot of expressive and creative designs and graphics that generate energy, vigor and dynamism.
The theme CULTURAL HYBRID is both decadent and rhythmical at the same time. It is an artistic blend of cultural heritage with local craftsmanship and reminiscence.
The theme TREASURE AND TRASH elucidates the high tech and low tech coming together in the multi layering of tacky trash and cherished treasure.
Below are some pictures to illustrate the MIX MASH trend.
If you are a person who constantly looks for novelty but also cherishes the old, try MIX MASH and make a statement.
