EXPO REAL is considered Europe’s biggest real estate and investment trade fair. It will open its doors in Munich on 4 October and feature over 1,700 exhibitors who represent a property’s entire lifecycle – from the planning to the construction phase to marketing and use of the building. The latest industry trends and innovations will be discussed in no less than 100 events. Wilkhahn will also be there as part of the programme organised by the Network for Architecture Exchange (NAX).
The German Design Council invited guests to a special book launch in Berlin in mid-September. This year’s edition of The Major German Brands was introduced to the Minister of Culture, Professor Monika Grütters, and a whole host of guests from the worlds of business, politics and culture. Wilkhahn is also part of the select group of companies presented by the German Design Council.

Wilkhahn’s dynamic Stand-up with new features.
Since its launch last year, the IN office chair has already won a number of major design prizes. Now it’s garnered another one which pays tribute to its ergonomic qualities in particular. The British Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) presents the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence AWARD to British products that are exceptional in boosting health and therefore productivity in the workplace. The fact that IN was able to comply with the stringent criteria of the independent institution, underlines Wilkhahn’s aim to create a global benchmark in dynamic sitting.
We can’t say for certain whether the 19 “crazy easy ways” you can be healthier in the office really all work. But the tips from The Muse, the US recruitment agency, are definitely worth a read – particularly since some of them could have stemmed from Wilkhahn’s Office for Motion concept…
Today everyone’s talking about agile companies, change management, flexible organisation and smart working. With ingenious functionality and first-class design that’s exactly what the Timetable conference table family does like no other range. And what’s more, Timetable’s ideal for new settings. Examples include multipurpose council conference areas with round table systems which can be cleared away in no time, allowing the space to be reused for other options. We’ve added further sizes and shapes to the already wide product range to make it as versatile as possible for you. And we’ve provided all the OFML data with the useful meta planning tool.

Seating that’s used around the clock in shifts places especially high demands on people and materials. Particularly in control rooms and monitoring centres, staff need to be extremely alert and totally focused at all times. This requires extremely hard-wearing office chairs that enable as diverse and frequent a range of movement as possible to prevent fatigue and to guarantee concentration. This is exactly the reason why Wilkhahn developed ON and IN models that allow users to reap the benefits to health provided by Trimension® 3D-kinematics around the clock.
