We aim to provide a comfort away from home through furniture, but with the strength, quality and warranties that you wouldn’t get with a domestic furniture supplier. Inspiration can often be taken from the domestic environment, but products must still be developed so they’re fit for a commercial setting.
The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is hard to ignore, with technologies such as Siri, Echo and Alexa becoming more popular. Meeting Pods, Modular seating and Co-working tables may even have AI built in (like they currently do with power sockets and air-charge). I also believe furniture will start to look less formal and corporate with softer curves and fabrics being incorporated within workplace environments. They’ll also be a greater need for event spaces to strengthen team cohesion and morale, as well as become an attractive community to work for.
