Interzum, held in odd years in Cologne, Germany, is the largest materials fair in the world, attracting architects, designers, and fabricators from around the world. Here’s a tiny glimpse at some of the exciting new ideas from the 2013 fair.

Light-Up Laminates

While there are several high-quality decor printers based in Germany, one stands out not only for its on-target trend introductions, but for its ability to continually innovate and push the boundaries of what “laminates” are – Schattdecor. One example shown at Interzum is a prototype Smartfoil (lightweight decorative surface) that glows in the dark, here in the shape of a lightbulb. www.schattdecor.us
