Help fund the future of design!


Since 2004 the Trendease Team has been attending the trade show MoOD (Meet only Original Designs, formally known as Decosit) in Brussels, Belgium. We have been a media partner for a decade and 2017 marks the third year that we are curating the Launch Pad area, dedicated subsidized space within the trade show founded by Trendease in collaboration with the organizer. To qualify for the Launch Pad candidates must be new to the industry (5 years or less) and demonstrate a mastery of their talent as well as potential to succeed within the marketplace. This is a juried showcase and those selected represent the most promising talent from around the globe.
 

Launch Pad participants receive a 2x3 meter fully-equipped stand to exhibit their talent; additionally they are supported by a communication strategy through Trendease International including introduction to the press and daily tours of design professionals brought by their stands.  

While the space is heavily subsidized, there is still a cost associated with exhibiting and there are a number of highly qualified candidates in need of financial aid. It is the hope of the Trendease Team that through this Kickstarter campaign we can help fund four Launch Pad spaces in addition to the 20 that are already confirmed for 2017. If we exceed our goal we will continue to fund as many qualified creatives in need of support as possible. 

Over the course of the first two editions we have unveiled 32 Launch Padders to the industry. Help us bring inspiring talent to market and kick start some more careers. Who knows, you could be funding the next big thing! 

If you are not familiar with MoOD, MoOD is over 35 years old (formerly known as Decosit) and focuses on home fashion and the original producers of upholstery, window, and wall coverings. Together with the surface design event Indigo, the fair gathers about 300 exhibitors from 30+ countries. MoOD was visited by companies from 100+ countries; professional visitors from Europe, and overseas (Asia, North America, Central/South America, Africa). Visitors include converters/editors, producers, wholesalers, architects, interior designers, contract operators, department stores & agents.
