The TOP EXPO competition of the FOR HABITAT, FOR GARDEN, FOR FURNITURE Trade Fairs, of the DESIGN SHAKER Selective Exhibition of Interior Design and of the LIGHT IN ARCHITECTURE Specialised Exhibition already knows its winners. There were many possibilities for choice at the trade fair, which means that the work of the Jury members was not easy. Important features for the Jury included not only the appearance but also functionality and focus on customers.
The unambiguously dominating exposition among the FOR HABITAT Trade Fair exhibitors was the one of DOPOS Přelouč s.r.o., a supplier of shading technology, which fascinated through its detailed design and excellent presentation of the exhibits. The best stand at the FOR FURNITURE Trade Fair was presented by CFH Group, a.s., which manufactures medical mattresses. The Jury appreciated the high-quality layout of the exposition with an emphasis on details. PIESOK-SK s.r.o. addressed visitors with an inspiring solution of the exposition presented at the trade fair for gardens and garden technology. The organisers of the FOR GARDEN Trade Fair decided to grant a Honourable Mention also to the irrigation company Profigrass s.r.o. for an interesting solution of promotion of exhibits. The minimal design of the furniture manufacturing company “JELÍNEK - výroba nábytku s.r.o.” was appreciated by the Jury at the Selective Exhibition of Interior Design known as DESIGN SHAKER. An absolutely unique architectonic design of the entire exposition was demonstrated by PROLICHT CZECH s.r.o. at the Specialised Exhibition LIGHT IN ARCHITECTURE.
Exercising and therapeutic mattress
While sleeping, your body regenerates and rests. On the market it is currently possible to find also the mattresses which are able, in fact, to exercise for you, more exactly said they ensure stretching for you. “In cooperation with medical schools we together try to develop products which help and cure,” said František Hlaváč, Managing Director of the Magniflex Company, to Novinky, adding that the Magnistretch mattress is able to support, during the sleeping process, the treatment of e.g. prolapsed disc, pinched nerve in the spinal area or setting of the spine. The mattress with the world-wide patent is simply able to ensure all these functions. “People feel immediate relief. The essential fact is that the upper layer of the mattress will embrace you. From the waist up and from the waist down it will start to stretch through the operation of the load, in a non-invasive way. According to the tests carried out, a person using this mattress can stretch by 1.5 cm for eight hours,” states Hlaváč, adding that eight hours of sleeping on the mattress corresponds approximately to thirty minutes of exercising focused on the stretching of the spine. The product is available at two heights and in the medium-rigid and medium-soft variants. The product costs about 23 to 25 thousand crowns.

Same as previous years it is now taken under the wings of interior designer Iva Bastlová and publications on this accompanying program will be part of the specialized Interiors magazine. A novelty is the change in location. The exposition will still be located in the entrance hall 2, but not in one of the side parts, now visitors would pass it directly. New auditorium grew at the original place and there would be held a lecture on the topic of interior trends: POETIC, HARMONY, CULTURAL and SMART.
