And Spain will be there with its new visions and inspiring ideas. Discover more…

Nowadays, the office is everywhere and not only at work. It will be with you at home, in the train, in the car and even in the open air. And with so many hours spent at work, shouldn’t workplaces improve and turn into the ideal spaces for promoting new ideas, productivity and letting creativity flow?

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.
