From 26 to 29 January Homi opens the doors of the 2023 edition, at Fieramilano. An exhibition space-time in which living trends meet industry news

Homi 2023 returns to Fieramilano to tell the new scenarios of living and trends involving domestic spaces. A container that tells the evolution of the home, understood as a place of good living, even in the face of new daily habits.

Made in Italy, sustainability and creativity are the three pillars on which the fair is based, with a particular emphasis, this year, reserved for dynamic craftsmanship, reinterpreted by young talents in a contemporary key.

Furnishing accessories, textiles, accessories, decorations, tableware, essences and fragrances are the protagonists of Homi, which however in 2023 is enriched with some entertainment and educational novelties at the same time.

Homi 2023: the 'suspended' news

The presence at the fair of two 'suspended' installations, A Vista D'uomo and Skyline, represents the first novelty of this year.

In addition to promising to be engaging from a visual point of view, the two creations will also act as a display vehicle for objects and decorative proposals, highlighted but always integrating into the itinerary of the exhibition.

“These are two imposing spaces, suspended three meters above the ground and with a height ranging from 8 to 15 meters and a weight of 3.4 tons - explains Adolfo Carrara, author of the concept for Homi - created thinking about the transversal coexistence of different worlds - industry, craftsmanship, technology, design and decoration - and following the common thread of Homi that combines Made in Italy, sustainability and creativity.

They also represent a call for sustainability.

Both installations were in fact created using recovered and recycled materials supplied by Italian textile companies and more precisely: Alois Compagnia Creativa, Basi Innovation, Best Tie, Fiet's, Gesta sas, Manifattura Filtes, Martinelli Ginetto Group , Rivolta Carmignani, Tessitura Randi, Top Terry.

“Over 200,000 meters of selvedges and textile ribbons were used which, thanks to the manual intervention of Italian craftsmen, upholsterers and fitters, gave shape to these imposing shapes which also represent the centrality of Milan, paying homage a city in continuous progress” concludes Carrara.

What to see in Homi 2023

As mentioned, the sphere of craftsmanship represents an important leitmotif for the event this year: from the exhibitors, to the scheduled talks and workshops, the product as well as the artisanal approach represent a hot topic.

Even more if green, therefore reasoned with a view to sustainability. As confirmation, the appointment with the KiLife Sustainable Award is renewed for the second year, in collaboration with the Kiki Lab, created to reward not only Italian but also international companies that are more sensitive to the environmental impact of their projects.

Homi 2023: who will be there

But also room diffusers and scented candles with Euthalia Fragrances, which recently presented 'Duomo Milano', the fragrance homage to one of the most famous Gothic cathedrals in the world and to a city synonymous with history and culture.

How the way of living at home has changed, says Doxa

On the occasion of the 2023 edition of Homi, Doxa confirms that the data show a significant increase in people who wish to have an extra room (36%), where they can work without being disturbed (or disturbed) by other family members, or find space to train and keep fit.

Meals are eaten more frequently at home (+33% at lunch, +36% at dinner) and are shared, more than before, with friends and relatives.

Even leisure time such as watching films and series (+42%) is decidedly more homely.

Finally, in support of the event, and while waiting for the new edition to get underway, the HomiCommunity platform represents an official channel for contact, exchange and updates between sector professionals.

A virtual place (online, of course) where national and international operators and buyers can get a preview of products, news and stories of the companies that will be present at the fair.
