ORGATEC trade fair champions optimal design

Modern Working Worlds was the theme of ORGATEC, the leading international trade fair which took place 21-25 October 2014 in Cologne. Responding to the growing demand for flexible forms of work and optimal working environments, leading manufacturers presented their product innovations in furnishing, flooring, acoustics, lighting and media technology.


At the Trendforum, experts discussed the modern office environment, including trends and best-practice scenarios, with subjects including Demographic Change in the Office, and Gamification. On ‘Gamification Day’ companies including Rabobank and Centigrade demonstrated how employee commitment can be improved by introducing playful elements. Having started in the US, this trend is now influencing corporations and businesses in Europe – banks, insurance companies and traditional engineering companies, the automotive industry and electrical engineering firms. We’ve also been inspired by these hot topics and will be discussing the latest trends with our clients, in creating design solutions.
