In September 2018 spoga+gafa, the biggest garden trade fair in the world, provided a look ahead to the future of outdoor furniture and shading systems in an internationally curated trend show.
This trend show will be presented at the next imm cologne. The visitors of imm Cologne will thus also have the chance to take a look at the future of garden furniture and shading systems.
Several product islands will be located in the heart of the area. They demonstrate the trends of tomorrow. The main emphasis here lies on materials and functionality. It is about innovative product characteristics, new combinations and the theme sustainability as well as comfort and ergonomics, flexibility and multifunctionality.
