The last year was packed with many interesting events and trade fairs in the interior area. We have reported on trade fairs such as the Imm Cologne, the Maison & Objet in Paris, Light+Building – where we presented our first lighting series “Kahala” and Tendence in Frankfurt. In 2017 we’re looking foward to the next appointments in our calendar. This article is updated continuously throughout the year to link our latest research to the respective trade fairs.
