That's how it was at Ambiente 2018 ...
"Experience the trade fair that brings the future into the present", so they said at Ambiente in Frankfurt this year.

For Ambiente 2018 an exceptional fair booth was created again with this outstanding material wool felt by HEY-SIGN which proves the innovative power of felt for contract business and product design at its best.
Best of Ambiente 2018
Well packed in felt, this is the HEY-SIGN hot water bottle COSY (Design: Metz und Kindler) which Claudia Simone Hoff of dear-magazine counts to the Best of Ambiente 2018, a worthy successor of the SILO box which made it to the Best of in 2017.

That's how it was at imm cologne 2018 ...
Feel the pulse of the furnishing world! This was the motto of this year's imm cologne. In these pulsating times, where retreats and pleasant room acoustics get more important than ever, HEY-SIGN mainly concentrated on designing individual life and working areas acoustically effectful.
For this purpose the trade booth was held reduced in the classic colours anthracite, graphite and a light grey mixture. The colour aubergine underlined the gentle colouring and lend the booth calmless and elegance alike.
The booth concept showed once again, how skilful wool felt can get integrated in contract business. Concurrently all wool felt products in its entity care for good room acoustics. Special attention was paid to the new acoustic pinpoards, wall and suspended modules Wave as well as to the mural design Relief.
Old church Bernkastel-Wehlen
The church built anno 1668 with its many ancient elements and its very special charm, was refurbished with lots of love to detail to a holiday home in a most distinguished way. Situated only 50 metres from the bank of Mosel river, the "Old church" offers a fascinating view to the world-renowned Riesling vineyards "Wehlener Sonnenuhr/Sundial". In the church interior a special room concept was needed to take away the echo of the old wallings and to create a pleasant atmosphere.
For the project "Old Church" individual rooms were furnished with HEY-SIGN seat and bench cushions, seatings as well as with storage boxes. Especially the felt boxes fit perfectly to the interior design. All wool felt products look harmoniously and complement the overall concept. From now on the church can be rented from groups with up to 14 people at the weekends.

The new rugs Stripe and Field complement the HEY-SIGN rug series. For these designs stripes of wool felt get sewed to each other in a colour change which leads to a highly decorative effect. The visible seams highlight the manual character.

Here we are: The opening of the new building for the Association of the textile and clothing industry in Muenster is just around the corner.
Considering the spectacular design of the brick facade which imitates the drapery of cloths, the topic textile should also play a significant role in the interior architecture. The HEY-SIGN design concept inspired the responsible architect and the building owner alike.

Offices and rooms were equipped with large, decorative panels of wool felt and with the well-known HEY-SIGN room dividers Wave. The colour palette used by HEY-SIGN was model for further equipment objects.
The manufactory HEY-SIGN has always been known as partner of industry, commerce and architects. Consequenty it is special honour for us to participate in the textile design of the new building for the Association of the North-West German textile and clothing industry Ltd. in Muenster.

That`s how it was at Maison & Objet 2017 ... Discovering the world of living, eyeballing new introductions and experiencing new living spaces, this is what the fair stands for year after year. Not only in hall 7, design á vivre, but there of course too, one could experience the world of design very closely. "Mainly our acoustic and room dividing solutions as well as our tablewear and decoration were skillful set on stage. With regards to colours we focused on our homey ones using the colour shade curry as an eye-catching element."
And the concept worked. The HEY-SIGN booth was constantly highly frequented, was venue for the press, for existing customers and attraction pole for many new people interested.
