We translate the contemporary image of swarm intelligence with simultaneous concentration of competence into a spatial context.

The “swarm”, a string of festoons extending across the entire Hall 11, connects the innovation and inspiration areas with the heart of the fair: an inviting platform that is a place for exchange and dialogue.

The inspiration area is a completely new addition to the FI-Forum.

The area of is a lab-like workshop space that invites visitors to explore and question trends from outside the industry, such as VR glasses and robotics. The space also includes a digital-analogue media library. 

In combination with ready-made furniture and flexible, multifunctional table and frame systems, our design measures create an inviting workshop and convention atmosphere that simultaneously has a relaxed and high-quality appearance.
