As we can see more and more engaging are the topics related to the digitization of products and processes, the best use of resources, sustainability and everything that could be useful in small houses.
Square “Digitalization: Focus on Consumer Trends!“
“Digitization is one of the key issues of our time,“ says Maik Fischer, director of interzum. “So it is obvious that we are paying particular attention to this trend. In this square, we are trying to provide a combination of interesting ideas and valid concrete examples “.
Digitization can be an opportunity to make improvements. Consumers have become increasingly informed, thanks to the internet, and increasingly demanding. Sustainability, personalization, comfort, quality and convenience are just some of the big areas where digital solutions can help companies meet these needs. Piazza Digitalization was designed in collaboration with the DC digitalconnection studio specializing in digital transformation. For Tanja Brandão it was particularly important to focus on the different types of digitization.
“The exhibitors of the Piazza - explained Tanja Brandão - present their digital solutions, which correspond to the trends of international consumers.In addition to physical products, there are also new business models and solutions that use digital tools to improve design, production or sales process “.
There are three areas in which Piazza Digitalization is developed: the first focuses on the issues of conscious and sustainable life; the second focuses on the need for individualization of living spaces and personalization of furnishings. Finally, the third one analyzes the digitalization applied to the technologies inserted inside the house, useful for saving energy, improving safety and simplifying life.
