    Visionary concepts for a new work culture 

    Orgatec is the world’s leading trade fair for Office and Facility and attracts over 55.000 visitors every two years. This year, the fair focuses on ‘Visionary concepts for a new work culture’.  

    "A natural fit for Prooff," shares Leo Schouten director of the company: “At Prooff, we develop innovative products for people in the public domain and the progressive office. Collaborating closely with designers, (interior)architects, scientists, and strategists, we devise solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of employees all over the world.” 

    Shining a new light 

    The modular and multifunctional furniture concepts of Prooff champion health and wellbeing, encourage collaboration and enhance efficiency in the workspace. At Orgatec, DoepelStrijkers envisioned that idea in a 200 square metres stand. 

    Eline Strijkers: “The furniture of the Prooff collection focuses on stimulating different forms of activity. Research has shown that spaces where change can be experienced, stress is reduced and productivity is promoted. The visitors of Orgatec are invited through the stand by the means of light, resulting in reflection and movement. Just like nature, the stand is moving and adapting to the visitors of Orgatec.” 

    “People are the ones that bring our furniture concepts to life. We look forward to continue the conversation at Orgatec” - Leo Schouten, director of Prooff
