Spanish brands offer their new visions for work at the ORGATEC 2018

Long gone are the days when ORGATEC was simply an exhibition of desks, chairs, filing cabinets and the like. Its focus is now on the new culture of work, work processes and forward-looking office concepts.

With the digital transformation, companies are more involved than ever in creating spaces in the office that can easily be reconfigured for different tasks and evolving teams. This means that work doesn’t necessarily need to be chained to a defined space and time.

The excellent performances of Spanish furniture in the German market, which is also a hub for other Central Europe markets, have encouraged a rising number of Spanish brands to increase their participation in the main business platforms of the area: IMM Cologne, Orgatec and Light + Building in Frankfurt. Main aim of their strategy is to establish new business collaborations with local professionals of the interior design and contract industry and consolidate their position in the market.
