The world’s leading furniture trade show finished for another year on Saturday, as Cologne’s biannual Orgatec finally came to a close. From furnishings to lighting, flooring to acoustics and event technology, over 671 companies offered visitors the chance to see the latest designs from the market leaders of today.
Across the event, it was clear that agile working environments and how to meet the ever growing requirements of collaborative working, were important issues that are being addressed by the leading designers. Sustainability, workplace wellbeing, and homely designs are trends which are increasingly becoming relevant, with consumers constantly demanding more from their workplace.
An event such as Orgatec is not just an opportunity to showcase products but also to give expression to a brand's identity. The theme for Flokk this year was Belonging, highlighting the fact that we are a house of brands, and that each brand is part of the Flokk family. It's also a reflection of the inclusive nature of our designs, and the idea that by creating a variety of homely environments, we can help to encourage creativity in the workplace.
Orgatec represented a chance for our brands to showcase their very latest designs, and the answers to challenges found around the world. New designs from RH, HÅG, Giroflex and BMA were displayed, a brand new fabric along with invigorating new colours was unveiled, available across our brands. Those new ideas, together with our well-established products, attracted a lot of people to our stand. It gave us the opportunity to make new connections, and meet with our customers and friends from across the world.
It was great to see the influential architecture and design magazine Dezeen pick out Offecct's new seating system Dune as one of their favourite innovative new designs. We are also thrilled that our newest brand, Profim, was nominated for a Frame Award for their Orgatec stand, in the "Best use of colour" category.
