The Pantone Institute relies on simplicity and elegance in colors, the furniture seeks a balance between functionality and its own style in the new year
Classic blue 19-4052. This is the code of the modern color for 2020, according to the color legislator - the Pantone Institute. He replaces the living coral that ruled in 2019. For more than 20 years, Pantone's Color of the Year has influenced many industries, most notably furniture fashion and industrial design.
Classic Blue 19-4052 according to Pantone experts is inspiring calm, confidence and desire for connectivity. This lasting shade of blue emphasizes our desire for a reliable and stable foundation on which to build, crossing the threshold of a new era. This lasting shade of blue is elegant in its simplicity. It brings the calm of the evening sky, a feeling of peace, offers refuge. Classic Blue redirects our thoughts and helps concentration.
STROIKO EXPO is the only Bulgarian exhibition for architecture, construction and furniture, where exhibitors and visitors check the clock for new trends in furniture.
In furniture, 2020 tries to reconcile the minimalist functional design and the individual understanding of coziness and comfort.
2020 encourages eclecticism, the search for unusual combinations of different styles and eras. Every detail in the home can carry the spirit of a different era and have its own character and history. The symmetry is in a delicate balance with abundance. Measured and tasteful, every old armchair, loaded with memories and experiences, can find a place next to our "smart" fireplace, which we put on our phone on the way home. The handmade wooden chest of drawers can beautifully complement the kitchen island with high-tech antibacterial coating, for example. Grandma's lace can soften sofas with nano-textiles.
And in 2020, the Scandinavian style, based on minimalism and functionality, remains dominant. However, its concept is personalized, complemented by warm shades, smooth transitions and careful zoning. The classic open space gives way to light partitions, creating a cozy home interior. Combinations of modern with old are encouraged.
The ideas for creating a bridge between high technologies and the classic postulates in the furniture made the team of STROIKO EXPO to dedicate this year's spring edition to HIGH TECHNOLOGICAL HOME. The ambition is to find the important questions through the exhibitors and the accompanying program: How do innovations practically help for harmonious interaction between people, their homes and cities? How do new technologies create a secure environment and a safe home? How to achieve a "passive home" and how to manage a "smart home"? How can established quality and new businesses in architecture, construction and furnishing interact?
In the era of global digitalization, people cannot escape the tendencies for multifunctionality, smart management and saving of natural resources when choosing new furniture, but they can "warm" it with handmade accents.
STROIKO EXPO will be held from 25 to 29 March 2020 at the National Palace of Culture. The 53rd exhibition brings together all the innovations for harmonious development between people, their homes and the environment in which they live, presenting a full cycle of sustainable interaction with green technologies and innovations.
STROIKO EXPO will also include leading real estate brokers with market analysis and review of trends. A rich accompanying program is envisaged, which in discussion with leading architects, builders and designers will present a VISION FOR THE HIGH-TECH HOME.
