At FIORA we have packed our bags again. This time, to travel to the French capital, where we will be staying until 20 November. But don’t think that we are going on holiday. Not at all. We are going to be showing our latest product developments at one of the most important fairs in the hospitality and catering sector: the biennal ‘Equip Hotel’ de París.
As many of you know, our furniture and our shower trays are present at all the most important events in the international arena. In 2014 we have already attended various professional fairs, most notably ‘Cersaie’ (Italy), ‘Expo Cihac’ (Mexico) and ‘Artibat’ (France). At all of these, our stand provides home to the latest product developments from our company, which this year arrive just in time to bring design and colour to autumn. The Silex Rustica and Vulcano Electric collections will be centre stage again at the ‘Equip Hotel’ fair in Paris.
The FIORA display area, which will be part of a comprehensive international exhibition of furniture for buildings in the hospitality and catering sector and hotel chains, will be located in Hall 7-2/Stand N70. Come along and find out first hand about our latest product launches. See you there!
For Fiora its research, development and innovation department is the cornerstone on which the company is based. Quality and design are the brand’s two maxims that come together and are expressed in the collections of furniture and shower trays. The investment in R&D+i responds to a firm commitment to this aspect, through which at Fiora we have created and patented designs that are singular in the world to make life simpler for our customers.
Innovation in materials and the commitment to ongoing investigation mark the difference. Our R&D+i department is in constant development, integrating their new products into the Fiora collections.
The R&D+i and Design departments may appear to be separate, but at Fiora they go hand in hand. A technological advance that does not fit in with the design of our collections is wasted effort, so both departments always work together. This is how Fiora has been able to launch such complete collections onto the market, where every part entails all of this prior work.
Clear examples of these technological advances are ‘Nanobathtechnology’ and our Silex Extra flat shower trays. Below we highlight some of our key research projects.
– The Silex shower trays and especially, the extra flat model.
– The application of nanotechnology to make Fiora products antibacterial and fungicidal, technology registered under the name Nanobathtechnology.
– Elax, the first shower tray that can be adapted to any space, that is flexible and can be manipulated thanks to the smart material from which it is made.
Without significant investment in R&D+i none of this progress or registration of new patents would be possible. We are proud of the mark that a good research department makes on the final result of our products.
