Orgatec Trade Fair 2016
Thursday, October 27, 2016
Last week I spent 4 days visiting Orgatec in Cologne, I have done this for the past 20 years.
This gives me the opportunity to see first hand the latest trends in Office Interior products and designs, my clients benefit enormously when I come back as I am brimming with new ideas.
This is probably the biggest show of its kind internationally and is held every two years, with colleagues and friends from all over the world meeting up and sharing ideas on future trends - and a few German beers of course!
This year the overriding theme seemed to be the importance of providing Acoustic Solutions within the ever changing working environment, it's become such an issue that there was even one whole hall solely dedicated to it!
With more people working in smaller office space the noise levels go up and this often results in frustration and therefore productivity suffers.
Most manufacturers now seem to offer some kind of acoustic products, with many options available.
From desk based screens, to mobile booths, enclosed "pods" for meetings and acoustic curtains hanging from the ceiling. There are even wall mounted and floor standing features as well as sound absorbing artwork for the walls.
The possibilities are endless to help reduce unwanted sound, a solution for everyone.
Please feel free to call Jabula Interior Projects if you have any questions or need to discuss any of the above, it would be a pleasure to help improve your office acoustics.
