Year on year the world’s biggest consumer goods trade fair features the innovative products of over 4,450 exhibitors from around 100 countries. Among this vast range the Contract Business Programme provides an Ambiente guide to some individual moments of happiness, geared specially to the needs of furnishing contractors as well as hotels, restaurants and cafés. “The catalogue and the markings at the stands are intended as a practical tool for those who are interested, helping them to find their way straight to exhibitors who can cater for their needs. This means they’ll save valuable time both during and after the trade fair, and they will discover new partners and solutions for their projects more quickly,” says Nicolette Naumann, Vice President Ambiente.
Hey-Sign – full-scale solutions for all five senses
Such magic moments are, for instance, created for designers, including interior designers, by Hey-Sign. The studio has regularly received awards for its high-quality felt products, e.g. the Red Dot and the German Design Award. Using its own collection, the company has developed a range of highly innovative contract furnishing concepts. Both the creative work and production take place in Germany, so that the partners can communicate quickly and have short routes. One of their recent projects was the new building of the Münster Textile Association, whose offices and premises were equipped by Hey-Sign with its well-known Wave room dividers and individually designed wool felt panels. The full-scale solution for the prestigious property reached from the design, through the production of special felts to the assembly.
Lambert – five stars to feel great
The Lambert brand focuses on “rooms where people create a feel-good interior for themselves”. The German manufacturer and editor is internationally renowned for its high-quality furniture and home accessories. Its sophisticated collections are characterised by their unique character and also by the subtle impact of tradition, craftsmanship and a range of different cultures. Customers from the contract sector, including international five-star hotels and restaurants, particularly value the design approach and charisma of this brand. One of the most prestigious properties is the five-star Superior Wellness Hotel Schloss Elmau, which hosted the G7 Summit in 2015.
Boltze – unforgettable moments
Whether it’s a wedding, Christmas, the summer season or a corporate event – decorations that suit the occasion convey more than a sense of hospitality. They underline the look-and-feel of the venue, carry brand values and create those happy moments that will always be remembered. Furnishing contractors will find a professional partner for this purpose in the Boltze Group. This leading German wholesale company for high-quality, trendsetting home accessories and gift items also scores well in matters of individual advice. All ideas are developed together with the customer and are sensitively tailored to suit their specific needs. To obtain unmistakable results, the experts use not only their own highly diverse product range, but, where necessary, also their exclusive access to special imports.
