Products Showcased at Interzum 2017
Experience “Micro Living” And “Smart Home” First Hand
Häfele thinks ahead and stays true to its motto “More life per square metre”. At Interzum 2017, Hall 7.1, Booth C040, the company will bring the entire furniture technology experience to life and present new products, innovative and smart ideas for the digital networking of furniture and rooms focused on the mega trends “Micro Living” and the “Smart Home”.
The international trends “Micro Living”, comfortable living in small spaces, and “Smart Home”, networking of furniture with their surroundings, intelligent control and adaptation to different living situations and daily routines of residents, challenge the furniture industry to develop appropriate answers. Häfele understands furniture, consistently expands its assortment as a system partner and always has its customers in view. During interzum, the company will show new ways to the future. Visitors will experience live and in person how intelligent furniture with advanced functions will shape and alter spaces.
Häfele’s interzum booth will summarize the challenges of our times in the three major theme areas: Micro Living, Smart furniture meets smart home and Furniture technology – A holistic view
- Furniture system for Micro Living
The densification of housing and the on-going migration into urban centres is what brings living itself into motion. Separating walls disappear, living spaces merge. What has long been a reality in the kitchen will soon be found in all other areas. When living spaces flow into each other and furniture defines the living space, the importance of the furnishings grows: the fittings define the furniture.
The Häfele concept idea for flexible living and working in small spaces uses the example of a student and a business apartment to illustrate the direction for the future. Both apartments consist of industrial, modular grid furniture - an innovative idea that will give the industry new impetus.
- Häfele Connect connects furniture and rooms
Häfele Connect is the new system that is key to smart, networked furniture and rooms. The internationally successful Loox LED lighting system for light and sound in furniture is the starting point. Thanks to its plug & play system and universal connectivity, furniture of all kinds can easily be electrified, even for future applications.
Intelligent software opens the way into the furniture by means of an app and will eventually facilitate complete room management. Opening, illuminating, and configuring: Häfele will demonstrate to the industry and craftsmen what is already possible today, using real examples.
- Furniture technology – A holistic view – Many novelties
Furniture technology is becoming the driving innovation force for the new living environment. It gives the furniture the necessary space-saving flexibility for daily use, creates the prerequisites for comfortable living and working in small units. Against this backdrop, only a comprehensive and holistic view of furniture brings usable and future-proof solutions for industry and craftsmen.
As an international market leader, Häfele knows the world of hardware technology, the furniture industry and furniture itself better than most others. The company has comprehensive experience and deep know how in all areas - from furniture design to interior fittings, opening and closing functions as well as the electrification of furniture.
Häfele applies this expertise to the development of new products and inspiring ideas with a holistic view of furniture, tailored to the entire process chain of the service provision and especially to the needs of the furniture industry. “Thinking ahead, for our customers in the furniture industry and for users of such smart furniture in a new era, that is our credo,” says CEO Sibylle Thierer.
