The Launch Pad now in its third year running, curated by Jennifer Castoldi and her team Trendease International, is an area in MoOD you do not want to miss! Featuring talent from all corners of the globe, these startup businesses and designers have been in the industry for five years or less and MoOD is their platform to shine. Discover what you have never before seen.
The Launch Pad is the place where you can find new talent for your team, fresh approaches to production, new materials, freelancers for special projects or one-off commissions, print innovations, novel concepts ripe for developing into production, and even new suppliers you didn’t know you were looking for—no trip to MoOD & Indigo Brussels is complete without a visit to the Launch Pad.
Also in 2017 the MoOD Innovation Sample Bank will be presenting high tech materials as well as materials used in an innovative way. All of which can find their use in upholstery, window and wall covering. The accent is on textiles but other materials are taken into account as well.
MoOD Innovation Platform is not so much about being the most aesthetic, or about putting the most trendy product on display: it’s about what is most innovative in terms of technique, performance, use of new materials, intelligent materials and so on.
