“Office interiors now feature more collaborative work spaces with more desk-based systems, with particular attention being paid to seating comfort and ergonomic criteria, and more attention to environmental safety.” – Manohar Gopal, MD, Featherlite Office Systems, Bengaluru, exhibitor at Index
Index Fairs have been the best platform for office furniture products, including modular workstations and furniture for institutional and commercial use. It is also a trusted platform for major international brands to launch their range of products in the Indian market.
The office furniture trade show sees participation from all major brands in this category, including Featherlite, Ventura, Godrej & Boyce, Divine Chairs, Abc Seating Solutions, etc.
India’s office market witnessed an all-time high with an annual absorption of over 43 million square feet in 2016, registering a growth of 9 per cent on a year-on-year basis. Thus, the market for office products has also increased. Commercial Interiors are the next best opportunity after residences for players in the furniture industry, and therefore, this office furniture show – Index Fairs – is the place to be.
Manohar Gopal sees the impact of home offices and compact and small workstations, collaborative working and desk-based systems and the rising importance of environmental and ergonomic factors in the design of the product, being the big changes in the market situation.
