Expositions of spring trade fairs are fascinating - the organisers selected the best ones


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.

Life extending bed

In order to ensure a nice fragrance in the bedroom, you can, for example, light a scented candle there. Furniture manufacturers thought out still a better variant, which provides not only a nice fragrance but at the same time it cures as well. “The bed made of alpine stone pine, which grows in the Alps at a height above 1600 metres, is interesting also thanks to the fact that it features a high content of pinosylvin, which is the substance released gradually from the wood. And thanks to this substance you can sleep better. Your sleeping is deeper, and it is even possible to reduce the heart rate by up to eight thousand units per night, which means that if you sleep in this bed you can live longer,” says David Srněnský, Business Representative of Jelínek, with enthusiasm, stating that in Europe this bed is not new, but in Bohemia it has been sold for two years only. Czechs are said to get accustomed to such things rather slowly. In its basic design it is possible to buy the bed at a price of CZK 30,000, while in full equipment you will buy it for CZK 70,000.

Dog beds and cots

Only few people are aware of the fact that even pet dogs can have the same problems as their masters during the sleeping time. With regard to the fact that Czechs are fond of their dogs, also the mattress manufacturers had to respond to customers’ requirements. “We were asked to produce the same mattress also for the dog which had problems with joints or setting of the spine. For this reason we have four types of beds and cots of various sizes with an Italian memory foam,” says Hlaváč.

Moss wall

If you like to include natural elements in your homes, you can complete your bedroom also with a moss wall. It raises a pleasant, calming impression and creates an atmosphere of a forest and rest. In no case is the wall an imitation, it is formed of real forest moss. “Although we have been manufacturing the walls for five years, it is not a usual article yet and it is still perceived as an innovation. The real future of this element will only come. It is really organic moss which was grown in special places and which was harvested by the companies with certification for moss harvesting. Then the moss is preserved, which means that it does not require any moisture, watering or daylight anymore,” says Jakub Hoďánek from the Flower Company adding that the product does not require almost any maintenance. Sometimes it is good to remove dust from the moss, by using the vacuum cleaner or fan. The only attribute which it loses in the course of time is colour. A pleasant characteristic, unlike the moss brought home from the forest, is the fact that no insects come out from the product preserved this way in the owner’s home. With regard to the fact that the company has been operating for five years, its owners know that moss can last for five years. The prices start at three thousand per square metre but you can get even to fifteen thousand crowns for mound moss. It depends on the type which you choose.

CHANGE OF COMPANY HEADQUARTER




Exposition of interior trends already traditional, but newly


The traditional parade of interesting materials, colors and solitaires arrayed in four directions will be held for the fourth time already. 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.

 

This style is full of pastel colours and subtle tones. Elements are traditional and modern at the same time. The interiors of this style is harmonious, gentle but also timeless. It cares about your soul and a it is a place for relaxation. The main inspiration is the art of all forms.

 

This is an absolutely calm interior, where main roles are played by natural materials like real wood, stone or wool. That is a reflection on ecology, recycling and up-recycling and also about the home itself, what is now not only a place for meeting with family, but it becomes a place for work (home office) as well. Colours are muted, earthy, main duo plays green and blue.

 

It is not just retro, it is also a combination of cultures, old and new. It's just our home. Nature, fun, life! Such are interiors in this style that you play for nothing. The materials are diverse as well as motifs and patterns. The colours are bright, distinctive tones are complement with soft neutrals.

 

Easy to clean, multi-functional, playful! Such are modern interiors, accomplished with high-level technology. The base of the interior is fresh and vivid, up to neutral, and it is complemented by bold colours such as red or green. Gloss and mat create a combination, as well as the 3D effects on a smooth surface with plastic tops.
