As a major focal point in the lives of an incredibly large number of people, the office is already constantly in their thoughts, but in the months before and after Orgatec, interest in all aspects of this work environment reaches even greater heights – and brands and producer companies experience an excited buzz as special attention is paid to every new idea.

Fear not. The Architonic Guide ORGATEC 2014 (PDF download) will ensure that you stay on top of everything going on at the Cologne fair as well as in the city, including who’s showing at Design Post and what’s happening at our members’ city locations.

Even-numbered years are ORGATEC years. On 21 October, Cologne will once again become the centre of everything related to the office and contract furnishing.

 

In six halls, more than 600 German and international exhibitors will be presenting their new products for the modern office. The fact that the fair takes place biennially heightens the expectations of visitors, who can catch up on the latest developments not just at the stands of the manufacturers but also at a number of forums and roundtable discussions.

 

As always, Architonic’s ORGATEC Guide will help you find your way around. And the Architonic stand A70–B71 in Hall 9 is the ideal meeting place at the heart of the fair. On the first evening of ORGATEC, the Architonic team looks forward to welcoming you to its traditional Architonic Disco at King Georg club – and while you’re waiting for your taxi, our ORGATEC blog will keep you up to date with the latest news from the fair.

This year’s Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium, will be taking place for the 24th time. From 17 to 26 October, more than 250 selected international brands with memorably designed stands will be presenting their products in the halls of Kortrijk Xpo, where they will be joined by about 100 newcomers. However, Interieur is more than just a trade fair. This painstakingly curated and always top-class design event, not satisfied with occupying just the Xpo site, will also enliven the city’s Buda Island.

 

British architect and publicist Joseph Grima will be responsible for the ambitious cultural programme. Five installations with SQM (Square Metre) labelling will spread across the Biennale locations, illustrating his slogan that “The Home Does Not Exist”. With excellent timing, Lars Müller Publishers has simultaneously brought out a publication in several volumes entitled “SQM: The Quantified Home”.

 

Marina Bautier, winner of the “Designer of the Year 2014″ award, will be presenting her work for the MA brand in Hall 3, where all prizewinners from 2006 onwards will be showing their latest designs for individual companies.

 

Architonic, too, will be present on the Xpo site with three striking totems, and we will be distributing not only our highly coveted bags but also invitations to the Architonic Disco.

Our first ever Cersaie 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

With the opening of Cersaie 2014 in Bologna on 22 September, the city will once more become – for a period of five days – the world’s main focal point for ceramic tiling, as well as for bathroom design and furnishing. Visitors are guided to the fair by the striking ‘trade fair towers’ designed by Kenzo Tange, which have been part of Bologna’s skyline since 1967.

 

For many years now, architects and designers have been giving Cersaie its individual flair, and not simply with creative stand designs. The exhibition is enriched by a wide range of special events that convey the atmosphere surrounding the fair’s high-quality products to almost every corner of the city. One very special location is the historic architectural complex of Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini, where the 2014 Bologna Water Design showcase event will offer not only an Architonic Totem, but also numerous surprises and exhibits on the theme of water.

 

Our feature article on ceramics in interiors – along with the Architonic Guide, which has been produced for Cersaie for the very first time – will help you to find your way around the Cersaie exhibition and discover the most interesting new developments within the industry. We look forward to welcoming you at our stand in Centro Servizi, No. 9, in front of Halls 25/26.

This year our Guide London 2014 (PDF download) will help you discover more possibilities with the minimum of effort.

In September the subject of design will once more dominate public life in a number of major European cities – including the British capital, as the London Design Festival comes to town. The Thameside city is already home to some of the world’s leading designers and architects, which will naturally have a positive impact on the festival.

 

From 17 to 21 September leading protagonists in the field of design will be actively participating in the festival, benefitting not only the exhibitors but also attending professionals, visitors and consumers. Newcomers will feel equally at home in London, as will the craftsmanship-oriented specialists at Decorex International, which this year will take place in a new and impressive venue in Syon Park.

 

In all its facets – even well beyond the mainstream – the London Design Festival spreads right across the city, establishing local focal points (Tent London & Super Brands London) and individual centres (designjunction). Visitors with an instinct for exploring the design world will find the ideal opportunity for this in the twentieth 100% Design show. What began as a rather unpretentious exhibition in a tent in the Kings Road in 1995 has since developed into a widely respected centre for top British and international design.

Created to meet the needs of architects, interior designers and discerning clients, September 2014’s M&O | projets | at the entrance to Hall 7, with its more than with over 3,200 m² of stands, is an absolute must

MAISON&OBJET Paris occupies a unique place among Europe’s major trade fairs in that it takes place twice a year, in January and now in September. However, a closer look at this late-summer fireworks display of thematically related exhibitions, events and activities indicates that ʻtrade fairʼ is not really an adequate term to describe it.

 

From 5 to 9 September an exhibition area measuring a quarter of a million square metres will be bustling with life at the Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte. In addition to the established trade fair focal points in Halls 1 to 6, Halls 7 and 8 will – under the ʻLuxury & Designʼ label – feature scènes d’intérieur, M&O | projets | and now! design à vivre.

 

The fact that the Paris Design Week is intelligently timed to coincide with the fair means that at the beginning of September the French capital will become a single superlative design experience offering countless opportunities to get to know the very latest trends and visions, and not only an exciting creative scene, but also its main protagonists.

For almost 10,000 years – whenever natural stone has been unavailable – man has resorted to using brick wherever the aim was to create buildings that would be enduring, monumental and symbolic in character.

 

It is therefore appropriate that we should dedicate a newsletter to this ‘material’, especially as contemporary architecture seems to have rediscovered its enthusiasm for brick. Our leading article itself demonstrates that brick – in all its variations in size, colour and surface finish, as well as in the nature of the craftsmanship with which it is worked – has established a firm place for itself in modern architecture, in each case revealing its superiority over a wide range of younger materials.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our August Newsletter:

 

Agenda September-October 2014
Piling Them High: Why Architects Are Rediscovering the Humble Brick
More articles from Architonic’s ‘News & Trends’
Inspiring Search Results N° 32: Parasols

Chongqing is one of China’s hottest, most humid cities in summer, but at Palm Island breezes blowing over the water and its buildings’ reflective facades help to reduce temperatures

This newsletter is devoted entirely to the element of water. Various urban projects are currently making use of its diverse aesthetic and psychological effects. Water surfaces sometimes serve as a mirror, in which the reflected buildings seem to float; at other times, they act as a link between nature and the built environment, or as a public attraction, but whatever use is made of water, it is always eye­­catching.

 

Here’s what you’ll find in our July Newsletter:

 

Creating an Urban Splash: Innovative Water Features in Cities
Heading into Virtual Worlds: Audio-visual Technologies
Inspiring Search Results N° 31: Bath taps for mounting onto bathtubs
Inspiring Spaces N° 23: Landscape design
