One of Europe’s leading fair for the woodworking industry, HOLZ-HANDWERK is going to take place for the 19th time from March 21 to 24, 2018. The interest from the sector has been so positive that the seven exhibition halls were already booked six months ahead of the event.
Around 110,000 trade visitors are expected to gather at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg to learn about the latest developments and trends in woodworking and wood processing. Joiners, carpenters and specialist retailers as well as experts in furniture-making and interior fittings appreciate the top-class range of products and relevant information as well as the hands-on nature of the event.
The products on display at HOLZ-HANDWERK include woodworking machinery, power and pneumatic tools, fixing systems, hardware, construction elements and fitted systems, timber, engineered wood and software. The trade fair covers all products and technologies relevant to the everyday work of wood processing companies.
Bavarian Carpentry Association (FSH) invites visitors to “Feel the spirit of the room”
In 2018, the popular special show “DesignObjekt – ObjektDesign” organised by the Bavarian Carpentry Association will have the theme “Feel the spirit of the room – holistic design concepts”. FSH Managing Director Dr Christian Wenzler explains: “For a long time, the carpentry trade has been focused on the design of individual objects and products, but what we are now seeing is a return to holistic approaches for the design of buildings, rooms, furniture and peripheral fittings. Our special show presents special design concepts, explains fundamental design ideas that allow the spirit of the room created to shine through, and explores the opportunities open to a carpentry trade that takes a creative and holistic approach. The “spirit” of a room occurs when everything somehow fits together. The room causes an emotion, and may startle, inspire or excite the observer. Every individual has a different response, and often it is only a gut feeling that triggers an effect that cannot be explained rationally. It is even more difficult to convey how and why this reaction occurs. In fact, a lot of this can be controlled very precisely. The special show in the foyer of Mitte entrance shows how.”
