In the world of colours: Profim
The Orgatec Fair is an event with a long tradition dating back over 50 years. It brings together connoisseurs of good design from all over the world. Especially for this occasion we had an exhibition stand designed by Tomek Rygalik, which stood out from other stands on the map of the fair thanks to its vivid saturated colours and uniform-arrangements of new products.
The secrets of colours
Our motto for this year's fair was #findyourcolour. The stand was divided into five uniform-colour zones: red, blue, yellow, black and violet. Blue is a colour to calm us down and give a sense of security and of comfort. It is thus indispensable in commercial spaces. Those who prefer bolder solutions are bound to be inspired by the red zone. Red is the most energetic colour, leaving no one indifferent. Profim's range of products includes violet, an intriguing colour, predicted to be the colour of the year by the experts from Pantone. Warmth, comfort and a homely atmosphere are, in turn, created by the yellow equipment on the stand. The whole design is complemented by refined deep black furniture, to ensure that the stand feels both chic and smart.
Inspiring new products
Orgatec 2018 saw not only a new stand design but also new products, which surprised everyone with their form and functionalities. The premiere collections included Chic Lounge, AccisPro, ElliePro, TrilloPro and the Nine hanger.
The innovative AccisPro armchair was designed especially for anyone with a sedentary lifestyle who needs more advanced adjustments. The armchair features a special mechanism, where the backrest and seating adjust themselves to our involuntary body movements. The credit for its light construction and aesthetic lines should go to the designers of the ITO Design studio.
Christophe Pillet, a French designer known for his minimalistic and elegant designs, has for the third time designed soft seating collections especially for us. The Chic and Chic Air collections are followed by the Lounge line, which attracts the attention of clients with its sophisticated shape, a perfect match for different styles of spaces. An additional advantage of the line is its thin cross-section and light form, which guarantees maximum comfort.
The ElliePro collection of chairs, in turn, perfectly fills the gap between classic chairs for the office and home, creating a casual atmosphere. Its streamlined flower-like shape, height adjustment mechanism and precise finishing make ElliePro suitable for various types of spaces: typical offices, conference rooms, modern coworking spaces and hotel rooms.
The iconic Seven hanger designed by Tomek Rygalik now has a successor: Nine – two steps ahead, which perfectly matches the style of modern spaces and allows for personalisation. This simple, yet eye-catching hanger corresponds to the design philosophy of Studio Rygalik. It is available both in metal and in wood, in a wide range of colours.
Ergonomics in first place
Apart from the premiere collections, our stand presented classic office products by Profim. One of them was the Violle armchair - an exceptionally smart and cleverly designed premium product. It has been designed for the most demanding of design connoisseurs.
The stall also allowed us to present the family of Chic and Chic Air soft seating. Chic Air compact chairs and benches are unconventional, delicate and perfect for meeting venues. A slightly lower armchair in the same style showcases the exceptionally light design. Chic chairs and armchairs have been designed to meet the needs of casual meetings, creating a relaxing atmosphere in public spaces. Everyone who enjoys office innovations is always intrigued by the Mickey armchair, which follows the Activity Based Workplace concept. Mickey allows us to work both sitting and standing, with height adjustable desks. Thanks to its wide and easy height adjustment range, this chair takes the burden off our spine and offers real comfort.
Meetings, awards and atmosphere on the stand
On the second day of the Orgatec Fair, we received very pleasing news. The organiser of the Koelmesse Fair nominated us for the Frame Awards, for the best use of colour. We find this recognition really valuable, as we were distinguished from among 700 exhibitors. In addition, Archiproducts, one of the most popular and recognised websites for architects, awarded us with the title of Design Selection.
The Fair was held from 23 to 27 October. It was an excellent opportunity to meet our business partners and establish new business relationships. The uniform colour design of our stand attracted the attention of the participants and was warmly received.
Thank you for visiting our stand.
