    Trend Forecast 2013: Customization

    To meet a continued demand for customization, manufacturers must provide a system that allows designers to work within a product offering to create a mix and match of colors and patterns that will be exactly what they want for each project.


    "There is a continued desire for designers to be able to customize and truly make the space unique for their clients," says Barbara Haaksma, vice president of design and marketing, Milliken. "They want each space they create to be set apart from others, providing an environment where users can interact according to the needs and culture of each individual client."


    However, she adds, "It has to be easy, make sense and not require a lot of time or effort." Hence the goal behind Milliken's Remix 2.0 collection.


    Anne Marie Commandeur, designer and managing director, Stijlinstituuts Amsterdam is also seeing many custom projects, which she attributes to people being more daring, more surprising and more outspoken. "3D manufacturing will help to establish fully personalized projects in the near future. Small unique initiatives set the tone, but big chains follow with adding contemporary flavor to their interior concepts," Commandeur says.


    Joey Kragelund, AIA, Associate Vice President, HGA Architects and Engineers believes there will be increased use of technology, manufacturing, and construction innovation to customize of modularization and pre-fabrication. "Interior and exterior design components [will] be selected and tailored to fit the context of the surrounding community, unique site or existing building conditions, and the sustainability goals of a project."
