Homi opens tomorrow

Homi, the Italian Lifestyles Show, which opens its doors tomorrow in Milan and runs through 30, will focus on the table

Homi, the Lifestyles Show from Fiera Milano will return from January 27-30, 2017 with a spotlight on new trends that characterise objects for the home and accessories.

At Homi 2017, the ideas and inspirations from these new style gurus will come to life with themed installations and spaces, workshops and demonstrations, with the greatest focus placed on the table, an area where originality, beauty and rules come harmoniously together to create ever more interesting compositions.

Social Table: Set a place for trends
Looking to the Web for advice in how to best interpret that desire for elegance, even at the table, is an ever more popular trend. For this reason, Homi, along with the Casastile publication, has asked some of the most important online trendsetters to bring their interpretation of the table to the show.

During the first day of the show, various bloggers will represent their own style in different ways, preparing tables that will be set using a combination of objects, accessories and fabrics that they find on display from exhibitors.

Then bloggers and other experts will be featured during workshops focused on retail, meetings that aim to offer an exchange of ideas as something educational. Many ideas and techniques (small and large) are to be presented for making a store visit an unforgettable experience.

Homi food: Food & Design
To create space for the most successful blends of fine culinary products and exceptional quality packaging, Homi Food will dedicate space to original, glamorous food and, especially, to the packaging. Packaging can turn a product into an icon of style, a story of tradition, and aesthetic intuition.

The section will feature a selection of firms – known for high quality in the food industry – that specialise in perfectly matching packaging and product design, so food can become an innovative gift idea.

La Casa Laboratoria: where new stylish ideas are right at home
“The ordinary becomes extraordinary” with the new La casa Laboratorio project from Csaba della Zorza, the famous Italian food writer and TV presenter.

The idea is the result of Homi’s view of the new scenarios in the tableware and kitchen industries. The initiative will come to life with Csaba’s original culinary tales, inspired by a simple, elegant and understated lifestyle.

With the motto “transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary,” Csaba represents how to be hospitable with style and contemporary savoir vivre, offering beauty, which becomes accessible on the table, and luxury, which, in the kitchen, is transformed into a democratic concept via simple acts of love.

Furthermore, visitors will find plenty going on in the magical atmosphere of the everyday with daily tastings prepared by Csaba personally.

This new event at Homi allows visitors to not only come into contact with innovations from exhibitors, but to taste good food as well.

Alice TV: Style and conviviality live from Homi
All of the ingredients for an excellent dish full of taste and aesthetics: articles and accessories for the kitchen and the table from big companies, the most interesting TV channel dedicated to food and wine and the most important trade show for companies from the home industry.

After the success seen at Homi in September 2016, Alice TV will once again be at the show with its own area, which will serve as the location for the Alice Homi Special programme, broadcasting live from Homi’s pavilions.

Personalities and chefs from Alice TV will offer cooking demonstrations, welcome guests and tell stories, in order to highlight the new refined dimensions of the kitchen and the table, featuring companies that offer excellent tools that bring together functionality and style.

Homi will return from January 27-30, 2017, at Fiera Milano.
