In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product.

Interzum 2019: the future starts here

interzum, the world's leading trade fair for supplies, components and semi-finished products for the furniture industry to be held in Cologne from 21 to 24 May 2019, will once again be the occasion to present and to capture the functional and aesthetic innovations of the industry of furniture and interior design. Over 1,800 exhibitors from around 60 countries will present their products, attracting the attention of tens of thousands of visitors, specialized operators, architects and designers, key players, trendsetters and decision makers.


New materials and innovative design

interzum covers the entire range of the world market: from hardware to lighting, from technological surfaces to wood and natural materials, from padding materials to machines for the production of upholstery and mattresses. Present as usual all the leading companies in the sector, but next to these, also many highly innovative small and medium-sized companies.The list of exhibitors is already available on the website www.interzum.com


Solutions for living in small spaces

Interzum is not only a major trade fair event, but also wants to present itself as the place where the themes that will be more and more widespread in the future are focused and which are anticipated here in their solutions. One of these is certainly the tendency linked to the “Tiny Spaces“ or the small living spaces, more and more frequent in cities all over the world. How to make these small rooms comfortable, optimizing all the spaces, is certainly one of the challenges for furniture manufacturers and for the interior design industry.With the new “Tiny Spaces“ showcase, interzum wants to tackle this very topical problem and for this it has involved six major companies in the sector, Atim, Blum, Hettich, Hommel, Häfele and Pessotto who will present their proposals to solve the needs of living in tight spaces.


Cologne: not only fair

Cologne is a beautiful city easily accessible from any country in the world that offers interesting opportunities for art and culture, trade and conviviality where it is pleasant to spend evenings after a busy day at the fair.
