Joy of reunion: Nordlichter and Village are back on Winter Nordstil 2021

10 Nov 2020

Back after summer break due to Corona: With the Nordlichter and the Village, other audience favorites besides the Buddelhelden are now part of the Nordstil again.

From wooden bow ties and jewelry handcrafted in Finland to face masks and clothing from a North German screen printing company: With surprising product ideas, the Nordlichter will finally anchor again in Hamburg on the Winter Nordstil from January 16 to 18, 2021. In Hall A4, 32 start-ups, young designers and small manufacturers will be giving visitors plenty of impulses for new, contemporary product ranges.

A Nordlicht from Finland this year is Hermandia Oy. The craft studio produces bow ties, jewelry and accessories from recycled, FSC-certified wood. All bow ties are delivered with a certificate stating the material used and its origin with the date of manufacture and model number.

Also coming from the north, the screen printing and graphic design company FÄDD will be exhibiting among the Nordlichter. The products of the brand from Kiel ranges from clothing with sea motifs for adults, children and babies to mouth-nose covers, jute bags and caps in Nordic design. From design on paper or on the computer to screen printing – the young North German fashion brand tries to create as much as possible in its own premises.

The Nordlichter also include the newly founded Hamburg stationery start-up Keitcards. The design of the cards is created in the Hanseatic city "from the living room". At its first appearance at Nordstil, visitors can look forward to a large selection of CO2-neutral greeting cards.

Also in Hall A4, the Buddelhelden will make connoisseurs' hearts beat faster with liquid cargo on board. True to the motto "Surprisingly different", the crew consisting of ten brands will offer visitors an inspiring selection of spirits for their supplementary assortments. Part of the Buddelhelden is this year again Nork. The Hanseatic team of the Korn brand will be bringing along their unusual but harmonious combinations of coffee-liquorice or ginger-lemon.

Return of the Village with eight participants

Also back again is the joint special presentation Village, which can be found in the Style & Design hall from this edition of Nordstil onwards. The multi-exhibitor concept focuses on customer-binding "aha" effects and illustrates the products and presentations with which retailers can inspire their customers at the point of sale. A total of eight companies will jointly present their ideas and also integrate their latest products. This year's participants are Donkey Products, Frohstoff, Gift Company, Goldenzebra, Goold old friends, ppd Paperproducts, Räder, and Sompex.

The Winter Nordstil will take place from 16 to 18 January 2021.
