The fair is composed of an special zone "OFFICE" which is curated by a special director, while the show’s other zones are based on product categories and themes.
People spend a lot of their time in offices. As a place to create new ideas, there has been more focus on incorporating more comfort and practical design to office spaces. At the same time, remote working, shared offices and coworking spaces are becoming more common in Japan where the idea of enhancing the workplace environment is more prevalent.
This concept will be showcased at a series of pop-up office demonstrations that will allow visitors to experience a new type of office environment and present new office trends to the market.
