Last sunday I went to Cocoon, a home and interior fair in Brussels. I thought I would see a lot of innovative design and concepts, but I didn’t entirely saw what I expected. There were of course some original products that were interesting for me, but most of the interior products where very mainstream. I think this is due to the expected public. People who visit this fair want to buy products or want to get inspired for their own houses. Of course, not everybody likes innovative and original designs so the fair consists of well-chosen brands that need to adapt oneself to the expectations of the public (the goal of the fair is to sell products and create brand awareness). Obviously, this doesn’t make it less interesting. The fair was worth visiting and I would recommend it to everybody who wants to decorate their home. It is a good way to become inspired and to get in touch with new brands.
Here you can see some photos of the things I was interested in:
