New Recruit: Lewis Hood

ORGATEC’s Bi-annual event was subject to over 50,000 traders worldwide who wanted to know whats new in the ever-changing world of interior design.

It was clear that the theme of this year’s show was collaborative working. A large portion of the stands showcasing the idea of flexible environments in a workplace. With hot-desking becoming more and more common in a workplace, the idea of flexibility is being recognised throughout the industry.

Being completely new to the furniture industry it offered a refreshing outlook to how projects can and should look. Having held previous office-based roles it was nice to see a stark difference from the boring desking / storage I am used too.


Most prominently, i noticed a wide use of standing screens being worked in with breakout areas, thin profile furniture legs and black powder coated finishes.
