Kontext View is addressed to designers who primarily work in a seasonal cycle. It is held twice a year. Its main focus is on design-specific topics relating to trend forecasting.
At this event, trends in textile development (including dyes, structures, “feel” and material) are presented along with new developments in the fields of applied research and technology. Colour forecasting brings visibility to new trends. The status quo is the starting point. From there, thematic proposals are formulated, which designers can integrate into their own visions. Kontext trend proposals form the basis for discourse for the coming season.
Kontext View understands the trend forecast as work in progress, not as a complete description of an imaginary future. The status quo is at the center, from which proposals are developed, which can connect designers with their own vision.

The digital trend magazine Kontext Insight is published twice a year accompanying the event Kontext View. It is a work tool for designers who want to use information of trend knowledge and innovations as inspiration for the coming seasons. The publication summarises the central theses of the Kontext View Event in text and image. The Maker Team's proposals on color trends, materiality and print design generate specific seasonal themes. Kontext Insight introduces key research topics that can be interpreted and promoted in one's own work. A color chart proposal is included.
Kontex Insight is included in the Kontext View abonemment or available separately (CHF 120.00 incl. VAT).
