More Life per Square Metre
Innovation and inspiration for furniture with a future – Thinking ahead
Häfele, the international expert for hardware technology and electronic access control systems will respond to the questions about the future of the industry on its interzum exhibit in hall 7 with a comprehensive view of the furniture industry.
Many new products inspire the construction of innovative furniture with potential for the future – 1,400 square meters of innovation and inspiration. In the face of rising real estate prices around the world and constantly shrinking work and living spaces, clever solutions are being asked for. In the Häfele world, “More life per square metre” is the response to this challenge. “More life” means more comfort, convenience and functionality. Innovative hardware technology by Häfele makes this a possibility. Hardware technology that is easily integrated into a furniture builders design, production and logistics while meeting the consumers’ demands for comfortable simplicity.
The international group of companies will demonstrate its visitors from around the world how all these challenges are met by one supplier under the motto “Easiness. Engineered by Häfele” in its new exhibit in Hall 7.1. Two main areas will feature the range of innovation, the new products, the hardware specific highlights, innovation and the furniture solutions. In addition the exhibit offers large spaces dedicated to communication, discussions about the business, market trends and whatever else is on the minds of visitors attending the large industry marketplace to connect and exchange information.
The inspiration area explores the global social trend of blending work and living spaces and their clever organisation with innovative furniture solutions. Working in small areas, intelligent workspaces in general, sleeping, working, cooking and communication are the themes. The intelligent furniture settings in combination with the innovative hardware solutions on display create a healthy and productive balance of the issues. They create the life-work, or work-life balance as its often referred to in the industry and offer the consumer “More life per square metre”.
The constant observation of trends and constantly changing social demands for comfortable furniture with additional functional features is the basis for Häfele’s own comprehensive expertise in furniture matters. The exhibit will feature how the trendscouts’ insights transition into clever applications and creative solutions.
