Orgatec is the leading international trade fair for modern work environments. As modern offices promote the interaction of working environment, work processes and work culture, this year’s theme “Creativity Works” takes a holistic view of how design can contribute to fostering creativity and productivity.
Orgatec will take place in Cologne, Germany from 25 to 29 October 2016, and will feature more than 650 exhibitors presenting the most innovative and inspiring concepts and solutions for office design and furniture. Eight KE-ZU brands will be showcasing their latest collections of office and so we have compiled this special guide to Orgatec 2016 to help you navigate the fairs highlights:
