Häfele at Holz-Handwerk 2014: a full house every day
Trendsetter for digital furniture planning and storage space
Häfele experienced a rush of visitors at Holz-Handwerk 2014. Innovative ideas about cabinets and storage space and the new interface to the biggest suppliers of CAD joiner software were the highlights.
Practitioners work with the Häfele plug-in consistently in their usual cabinet maker software, but have access to the entire range of Häfele fittings at the same time. Digital furniture planning therefore comes full circle, from cabinet planning to production of the furniture components in the CNC processing centre. The plug-in is first integrated into the latest imos release. Other large joiner software providers will follow.
Storage space concepts presented on 30 running metres of cabinet provided impetus to think ahead with regard to additional business, and attracted a full house on every day of the trade fair. The trade fair booth therefore became a meeting point for joiners/cabinet makers and interior designers, and a market place for innovative ideas.
For the Häfele trade fair team, once again there were not only many new innovations but also individual items of information, tips and tricks for processing, new marketing materials for cabinet makers/joiners and many inspirational ideas for furniture with additional functionality and comfort.
Additional Häfele topics were:
- High quality furniture solutions custom-built by cabinet makers, a multi-functional L-shaped kitchen and a dining room table that houses a surprisingly functional interior, e.g.:
- Convenience and functionality thanks to electricity integrated into furniture, the Loox LED lighting system, electric lift columns and sliding doors and Dialock access control system.
- The new Free flap fitting family from Häfele's own production.
- The convenient Matrix runner combined with the Moovit drawer system.
