ORGATEC, which takes place in Cologne from 25th to 29th October 2016, is taking up the challenge of showcasing new solutions, unusual ideas and innovative products, for the changing office workplace.
The international trade fair is looking past the days when just desks, filing systems and other similar solutions were presented and is now looking to embrace work culture, work processes and work environments. As a result, ORGATEC is creating a 260-square metre, specially dedicated area, where, this year, design solutions will be presented on the subject of the kitchen and outside areas.
Under the banner ‘Design meets movement’, two outdoor solutions for working in the open air await visitors with the aim to merge design with ergonomic functionality. Supporting this venture will be manufacturer of linear actuator systems, Linak, that develop applications in the hospital and care sector, the furniture industry and in the industrial sector.
Nina Ramberg Mortensen, Corporate Marketing Coordinator at Linak A/S in Denmark and responsible for this special event at ORGATEC 2016 said, “It’s not about us showing Linak products here, it’s exclusively about design ideas.”
The 2016 edition of ORGATEC also aims to think beyond conventional solutions and be inspired by new ideas.
Nina added, “I’m sure that quite a few visitors will be really surprised at the objects on show at the ‛Design meets movement’ stand. The interplay between ergonomically adjustable furniture and modern design, viewed in the context of the shift to the outdoors.”
