The first ever edition of IDEA – Innovation Design Expo Area Exhibition for Machinery new technologies, components and materials for the furniture industry will be held from April 12 to 15, 2016 at Bergamo Fiera.
Concurrent with the Salone del Mobile, the IDEA Design Innovation Expo Area will allow the visitors that are already in the area to see and learn more about the products and technologies that “make furniture”. Already thousands of visitors have registered, including groups coming from Brazil, China, Canada, Iran, Lithuania, Hungary.
The four day event will answer all questions regarding the future of furniture – from design to assembly. To give additional significance to the show, IKEA will organize two seminars among the several workshops planned for the visitors.
The show concept is interactive: it combines the exhibition aspect with the workshop atmosphere trough an intense collaboration among the machinery manufacturers, the material and components suppliers and the designers. All these subjects are strongly motivated from the opportunities created from the fast growing technologies developments. At IDEA one can be able to enter in the middle of the furniture chain process in order to better organize and plan for the future.
Among the big names that will participate, IKEA will speak on Friday, April 15th on the topic: More from less: light weight board materials. SCM Group will present on: Furniture on demand: close to the Customer. Centro Study Industria Leggera of Milano (CSIL) will illustrate the international market forecast for the current year and 2017.
Furniture can be “light”, with emission close to zero, following sustainable principle; it can be “easy assembled” without using glue; connecting parts can be made with 3D printers and welded with ultrasound. Factories can optimize the parts flow thanks to revolutionary software capable of organizing the working process thanks to industry 4.0. The IDEA – Innovation Design Expo Area will be a concentrate of technology with a look to the future of furniture.
