Future Office - special exhibition with a focus on health

The special show "Future Office" in Hall 3.0 highlighted the subject of health this year. Explore all the highlights around the healthy office.

How does the ‘Bad Office’ become the ‘Healthy Office’?

special show “Future Office” at Paperworld

In the middle of the “Future Office” visitors found the "Bad Office", where it is loud, crowded, hectic and uncomfortable. From here, they started a course through the "Healthy Office", which gave them positive counter impulses. The six areas of office space, furnishing, nutrition, working methods, employees and tasks contribute to a healthy office atmosphere, which could be explored one after the other on the special exhibition area.

It was possible to explore individual stations with acoustic experiences and lighting scenarios, to test a seating parcourt, to give information on the quality of meals and biorhythms, as well as a café.

The design concept of the special show was in the hands of the architectural office Matter, with the internationally recognized architect André Schmidt from Berlin.

The future office consists of a large exhibition area with a walk-through path where visitors can find out about healthy aspects of work.
