Highlights of Design District 2024

Design District, the annual trade fair for interior design, has come to an end. From Wednesday, May 29th to Friday, May 31st, the iconic Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam was transformed into the ultimate hotspot for professionals in the interior design industry. The event attracted a total of 7,184 visitors. Pyrasied was present to discover the latest trends and innovations in interior and design. In this blog, we share the highlights of Design District 2024.

Vibrant colours

Colour has a direct impact on our mood and energy levels. Choosing vibrant colours and bold patterns brings your interior to life and creates a positive, energetic atmosphere. This was evident at the fair, where many brands stood out with fresh and vivid colours. Retro colours like neon pink and bright yellow were particularly eye-catching. Where just a few years ago, bright colours were sparingly used, now there is a trend towards using a lot of colour throughout the entire interior—from floors and walls to furniture and accessories.

Round shapes

Designers experimented with various patterns and playful shapes, giving each object a unique character. Round and organic forms were among the highlights of Design District 2024 and were prominently featured in various designs, including lamps, ottomans, and even in the form of round wall-mounted music speakers.

Material combinations

Design District 2024 once again emphasized sustainable, recycled materials as the basis for furniture, fabrics, wall panels, and acoustic solutions. The standout feature was the combination of different materials. Natural materials such as wood, wool, and felt were frequently combined with synthetic materials like acrylic and recycled plastic, creating a sense of warmth and authenticity.

Acoustic solutions

Sound-absorbing panels and partition walls were showcased at various stands during Design District. Innovations extended beyond wall panels; sound-absorbing elements integrated into items such as lamps contributed to a calm and serene environment. A standout was Cascando’s booth, where beautiful workspaces efficiently combined functionality with colourful, stylish materials.

Various designers incorporated Pyrasied materials into their creations at Design District. Below are some notable examples:

Tonone – Green Cast fluor

The new Tonone Bridge lamp is made from Green Cast, 100% recycled acrylic. The colours create a fluorescent effect, while the edges of the orange, white, or yellow acrylic give a neon light effect.
