Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 23, 2022 – Home. Commercial office. Flex space. Work environments have changed a lot over the last few years – and with change, comes progress. That’s true too for the hardware, storage solutions and endless office functionality being shown at Häfele’s 2022 International Woodworking Fair (IWF) booth #C1940. As a leading supplier of office solutions and furniture hardware components, Häfele is bringing a variety of new and updated solutions which are designed to not only keep up with today’s work demands, but are designed to adjust and adapt to needs of the future as well.
“Many of us had to adopt a new way of working during the pandemic – which made homeowners and designers realize the need for solutions that are not just dependable, but also flexible,” says Mark Kamppinen, Director – Category Management for Häfele. “Functionality is at the forefront of today’s office design and that’s exactly what you’ll see on display at IWF – both hidden behind doors and cabinets as well as in plain sight.”
Whether work is being completed from a downtown office or converted bedroom, a reliable desk is crucial to getting stuff done. Back and better is the newly-updated Essential 2 Electric Adjustable Table Base from Häfele. This cost-effective system now includes a collision mitigation sensor which helps prevent interference while the table is in motion. Additional hardware updates include new control pads which are available in two styles: with simple up/down switches or with a customizable 4-setting programmable system. The hardware is available in black, silver or white and supports up to 250 lbs., including a customer-supplied desktop.
Keeping office supplies organized and at hand above the tabletop is the new TAG Hardware Symphony Office Desk Mount Organizer. This sleek, extremely versatile system offers endlessly adjustable storage with its stylish, faux leather-wrapped horizontal bars and add-on storage accessories such as hooks, paper trays, pencil holders, storage containers and more – all of which can be switched out or moved around whenever storage needs change.
Surface space is important – especially in an office where you might need room to spread out all the tasks at hand. With the Pull-Out Table Fitting with Folding Leg hardware from Häfele, you can fit an entire full-sized table in a space the size of a drawer. It’s an amazing solution for expanding real estate when needed and reclaiming space when it’s not. When open, it allows enough seating room for up to seven people and offers a load-bearing capacity of 132 lbs.
The rooms in our homes – especially the home office – are tasked with doing more these days. Adding foldaway bed hardware is one of the most efficient ways to improve the functionality and value of the design. Adding Häfele’s Vertical Wall Bed Mechanism means you get all of that plus added style, flexibility and comfort. Now available in queen, full and twin sizes – these designer- and installer-friendly wall bed kits offer some distinctive features which set the hardware apart from others such as optional comfort slats, paintable piston and hardware covers, as well as built-in adjustability to reduce the size of gaps around the panel.
Adding innovative illumination and storage mobility surrounding the wall bed display is Häfele’s all-new Illuminated Wireless Adjustable Shelf System. Designed specifically for use in frameless cabinets, this innovative system seamlessly pairs busbars integrated into the casework with recess-mounted Loox5 LED light bars installed beneath each shelf. The result is wireless shelf-based illumination, discretely located and easily repositioned – by designers, installers and owners.
Cabinet storage duties in the space are efficiently and smartly handled by some rather distinctive hardware. Häfele’s new Free Space 1.8 Push to Open lift-up fitting makes cabinet openings even sleeker – effortlessly lifting doors with a single tap. Other wall cabinets feature the Hawa Clipo G-PK for Glass with optional soft close while another is outfitted with Häfele’s space-saving Slido F-Line21 12C sliding door system.
Functional hardware solutions adding their style, movement and storage to the home office display include the Häfele Exclusive Matrix Box Slim A Drawer System, Grass Nova Pro Scala Drawer System for drawer storage as well as the Salice Silentia+ Soft Close Concealed Hinge and Grass TIOMOS Hinge for cabinets with swinging doors.
