Modern & Traditional Knightsbridge has it all at Sleep + Eat 2018

 Knightsbridge, the award-winning British furniture designers and manufacturers will be exhibiting at Sleep + Eat 2018. The event, which spans from the 20-21 November 2018, is held at Olympia London, and will be showcasing the best in design for the hospitality sector.

Knightsbridge will be presenting its hospitality ranges on stand number E50. The exciting showcase will be highlighting both its traditional and contemporary designs, with a visible split differentiating between the modern and more conservative collections, showing that Knightsbridge is perfect for a wide range of hospitality environments. The more traditional side will play host to classic hotel pieces including Banquette seating and Nexus, whilst the contemporary side will be a platform for modern pieces, such as Zouk beanbags, Bebop Modular collection and Breaker stools.

The Bebop family, which was designed by David Fox, in collaboration with Knightsbridge comprises of modular seating and table systems with coordinating swivel tub chairs and coffee tables. The collection is an exploration of organically soft forms, a departure from hard-edged simplicity. The style, inspired by historic Danish design is both easy on the eye and comforting.

The Zouk range incorporates luxe beanbags which add a playful feel to hospitality environments. Practical and fun Zouk beanbags are lightweight for easy relocation and are available in a wide range of soft fabrics or faux leather.

The exciting Nexus range includes the Nexus Armchair and the Nexus two-seater settee which incorporates a stylish frame. Both products come with a choice of three wire bases: gold, satin black and chrome, and are available in a wide range of fabrics including bespoke options. The collection’s higher back and generously cushioned seat adds comfort and style to workplace and hospitality environments.

As restaurant, bar, and hotel furniture suppliers, Knightsbridge’s hospitality collection contains furniture designed to suit a wide range of styles, tastes and needs. Crafted using timber from renewable sources, its portfolio embraces a collection of beautifully designed products that are ideal for usage across a variety of environments, including lounges, waiting rooms, foyers and dining rooms.

ORGATEC 2018: More International, More Emotional, More Creative

ORGATEC 2018: more international, more emotional, more creative


Stand: BLA STATION , Halle 9

ORGATEC 2018 impressively demonstrated how leading international trade fairs position themselves successfully: it addressed relevant issues emotionally and provided a whole sector with new sources of creative inspiration. “ORGATEC has successfully transformed itself from being solely a product showcase to an issues-focused business event,” said Katharina C. Hamma, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse. “With its first-class event and congress programme, ORGATEC succeeded in firmly embedding the sociopolitical importance of modern working worlds in decision makers’ thinking,” she added. The new concept was very well received by trade visitors: with more than 63,000 trade visitors, ORGATEC 2018 achieved an increase in visitors of over 15 per cent.

Stand: OFFECCT, Halle 11.2

ORGATEC exhibitors unanimously praised the high standard of the trade visitors at the fair. Many of them emphasised that significantly more users with senior decision-making authority and representatives from the real estate industry attended the event to find out about exhibitors’ offerings. ORGATEC 2018 also achieved impressive results in terms of its international reach. On the visitor side, the number of countries represented at the event rose from 118 to 142. In total, significantly more visitors from outside Germany travelled to Cologne for the leading international trade fair for the modern working world.

Stand: DeVorm, Halle 10.2

In addition to the advancing digitalisation of the industry, the trade fair’s dominant themes also included the trend for flexible solutions that adapt quickly and easily to individual needs. Companies are not limiting their products to stand-alone solutions, but instead focusing on holistic concepts. Today’s contemporary working environments need to be flexible: from quiet surroundings where workers can focus to their use for meetings and as creative spaces. Many exhibitors showcased solutions that also had the subject of health and ergonomics in mind. Other areas covered by the product presentations included solutions for the intuitive application of technology and the importance of acoustic systems that can be used in many different ways.

DAMS Open the Doors on Factory 2








Dams Furniture have opened their new, multi-million-pound manufacturing facility at their head office site in Knowsley, Merseyside.

The new 85,000 sq. ft (7,900 sq. m) building consolidates the four sites that Dams currently operate from on Knowsley Industrial Park into one larger site which will bring all their manufacturing and assembly together on one full site alongside their head office, showroom, warehouse and distribution centre.

“Dams have been a big champion of UK manufacturing ever since my father set up the business over 50 years ago, and we’re investing back in the business so we can better support the needs of our customers.” says Chris Scott, Managing Director. “This new production facility marks the start of the next phase of our development as a business and we are really looking forward to working in the new space over the coming weeks, months and years”.

“Having all our operations on one larger site will not only boost our UK manufacturing capabilities and reduce our lead times on made-to-order products, but it will also create dozens of new jobs which will have a positive effect on the local and wider community. Not just in the short term but for years to come!”

Dams head office site uses waste wood from the wood factory to power their central heating system. Two biomass boilers heat the production facilities and warehouse space reducing Dams demand for oil and gas, whilst at the same time helping to improve waste management, with over 95% being converted.

And no brand new, state of the art UK manufacturing facility is complete without a ‘hub’ area for Dams employees to enjoy on break times with Foosball and PingPong tables, outdoor dining facilities, and the iconic red British phone box to make any personal calls!

Dams always encourage their customers to go and pay them a visit to see and experience their products first hand, and for a tour of the operations – so feel free to book an appointment with one of the Dams sales team if you’d like to go along to Dams HQ!
