Trend Trail by Mix

Various Halls

trend trail by mix

For the first time at Tent, Global Color Research™ will create the Trend Trail by Mix. As colour trend forecasters, the consultancy are specialists in analysis; in particular how hues evolve through years and are informed by consumer trends. One of the key hues for 2014 is green, which features in both their colour trend publications Mix magazine and Mix Trends colour forecasting book.

The Trail will snake through the halls of the show and consist of 4 different walls where each will be dedicated to a different design sector. A daily talks series will accompany these features, highlighting the trend movements which affect the colour green. Read more >
