ASA Selection at Tendence 2011
WGSN-homebuildlife reports live from gift and accessories fair Tendence in Frankfurt, Germany. Here are the top three trends to emerge from the annual event so far:

Wood and biological materials: the focus on sustainable materials, bio-plastics and wood is becoming stronger and stronger. Non-biological plastics are mixed with bamboo or corn, but some products are made using 100% biodegradable materials.

Bicolour: ceramics, porcelain, melamine and glass products are presented in various two-tone styles.

Back to nature: inspirations from nature play an important role in both form and material.
