Offices become co-working spaces, hotels become a second home: at Ambiente, contract outfitters will find a wide range of solutions for new requirements, smart furnishing concepts and high-quality design for public spaces via the special interest contract business. From customising and the individualisation of series products to high quality for large order quantities: Specialised exhibitors present their answers to the growing demand.
Special contract and hospitality highlights will be presented by the exhibitors in the Interiors & Decoration (Hall 3.0) and Interior Design (Hall 3.1) segments of Living, as well as in the Office Design & Solutions (Hall 3.1) segment of Working. In the attractive interior design environment, visitors will have the opportunity to discover the synergies between Living and Working. The fusion of home and office can be experienced here. Hey-Sign, Qeeboo Milano and XLBoom will be among the exhibitors. They will be presenting their innovations, which upgrade offices, corporate offices, co-working spaces, restaurants and hotels and give them their own distinctive touch.
Qeeboo Milano S.r.l. (Hall 3.1 D36) stands out with particularly eye-catching interior design home accessories and lighting. With a touch of pop, the creations are intended to emphasise the style of each individual, bring originality to the surroundings and provide surprises, according to the manufacturer. Designer Stefano Giovannoni, for example, has created a coat stand that is reminiscent of the columnar saguaro plant from the Sonoran Desert. Available in various colours, it is made from recyclable polyethylene and has a powder-coated metal base. The colourful Queboo Rabbitt chair also attracts attention in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors.
The Antwerp-based company XLBoom (Hall 3.1 D92) also offers high-quality designs. For founders Ann De Cock and Geert-Jan Van Cauwelaert, a passion for craftsmanship takes centre stage. Their product range includes stylish bar sets and accessories, wine and champagne coolers for the hospitality and HoReCa sector.
Hey-Sign (Hall 3.1 D02) will be presenting room dividers, ceiling objects and seating furniture for the contract business at the upcoming Ambiente in the new Office Design & Solutions segment introduced in 2023 - with a special focus on the innovative "Welle" series. The series consists of room dividers, wall and ceiling elements and is characterised by its flexibility and adaptability. The use of natural wool felt not only contributes to the aesthetics, but also offers acoustic benefits.
"With the new trade fair concept, in which working environments and the contract business are also integrated, we see Ambiente as an excellent opportunity to provide customers and partners who are present in both the home & lifestyle sector and the commercial contract furnishing sector with comprehensive information about our entire range. We are looking forward to presenting our latest innovations in person at the trade fair and having exciting conversations about the wide range of possible applications for our products," says Katharina Günther, Managing Director of Hey-Sign.
In addition to Hey-Sign, exhibitors at Office Design Solutions include Country Living, Koenig + Neurath and Vario Büroeinrichtung as well as new companies such as Bungarten, Cornilleau SAS, Evavaara Design, Kühnle'waiko Büromöbel, Mute-Labs, Mauser Einrichtungssysteme, Wd3 and Woodtec. "This doubles the range compared to last year and makes it even more interesting for contract suppliers from all over the world," emphasises Yvonne Engelmann, Director Ambiente Living, Giving and Working. Visitors can look forward to sustainable office furniture, flexible furnishing concepts, high-quality designs and new concepts for interiors, home offices and (co-)working spaces, meetings and conferences. In the Future of Work special area, trade buyers will also experience a curated selection of modern workspaces that meet the need for more flexibility and mobility - curated by the architectural firm MTTR Architekten + Stadtplaner from Berlin. "Future of Work is not about individual product innovations, but rather about curated individual solutions that together inspire new concepts and form a unique overall world. In this way, we specifically promote new collaborations and partnerships and encourage networking," adds Engelmann.
