In Hall 7.1, Booth C040 Häfele will bring the entire furniture technology experience to life and present new products, innovative and smart ideas for the digital networking of furniture and rooms focused on the mega trends “Micro Living” and the “Smart Home”.
The international trends “Micro Living”, comfortable living in small spaces, and “Smart Home”, networking of furniture with their surroundings, intelligent control and adaptation to different living situations and daily routines of residents, challenge the furniture industry to develop appropriate answers. Häfele understands furniture, consistently expands its assortment as a system partner and always has his customers in view. During interzum, the company will show new ways to the future. Visitors will experience live and in person how intelligent furniture with advanced functions will shape and alter spaces; for example via Häfele Connect completely new dimensions can be explored with a smartphone app.
Häfele Connect is the new system that is key to smart, networked furniture and rooms. The internationally successful Loox LED lighting system for light and sound in furniture is the starting point. Thanks to its plug & play system and universal connectivity, furniture of all kinds can easily be electrified, even for future applications.
Intelligent software opens the way into the furniture by means of an app and will eventually facilitate complete room management. Opening, illuminating, and configuring: Häfele will demonstrate to industry and craftsmen what is already possible today, using real examples.
Häfele will once again fulfil its traditional role as an innovator in the industry with two new furniture connectors that have just received the interzum award 2017. The one-piece Ixconnect spreading bolt 8/25 won the highest distinction with the “Best of the best” designation. Another prize was awarded for the new EasyStorage connector, a universal connector for furniture pieces. It cuts the assembly time of furniture pieces from the Easy Storage range in half, compared to conventional connectors. The furniture connectors on the podium are examples of comprehensive furniture competency as well as ‘Easiness. Engineered by Häfele’, a credo that has made simplicity and easiness for customers the top priority.
