It is an innovative space that serves to consolidate our presence in the international market

In the very heart of Paris, only a 10 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, is the new Forma 5 Showroom. It is an innovative space that serves to consolidate our presence in the international market and has been designed to be a new meeting point for professionals within the office interior industry.
Baptised as “Le Patio” due to its social character being associated with an outdoor space but inside, this is the new signature look of Forma 5. The “patios” are a characteristic of Andalusia, an attempt to evoke the culture from our land and transfer its essence internationally; providing a complete experience at every visit.
In this showroom you can view the latest product launches such as the Drone meeting table, the Allure armchairs, the Skala height adjustable table or a large representation of the Let’s Family. All finished using the new trend in warm, inspiring and homely colours.

This new meeting point, located in an attractive Parisian environment, will draw many visitors, not only from the capital, but also from different parts of the country.

Boardrooms seek to convey the values, philosophy and direction of the company.

The meeting rooms have now become “the nerve centre” of any company. In addition to the sharing of ideas, teamwork, departmental and interdepartmental meetings and decision-making, boardrooms seek to convey the values, philosophy and direction of the company. The image projected through the furniture makes an impression on who visits it, and Drone gets it at first glance.

 

The Drone meeting table programme was designed to professionally equip these rooms with an offer that goes beyond a meeting table. There is a wide range to choose from,with the possibility of using add-on tables, plus the integration of modern electrification in its work surface thanks to a studied system of cable management and accessories such as power modules and modesty panels.

The task version of Drone presents a surface in melamine board, whereas the executive version offers natural wood for the table tops. The legs, made of steel and aluminum, help to generate a structure with a light appearance but with remarkable resistance and durability.

Drone has been designed by Gabriel Teixidó together with the collaboration of the R + D Department at Forma 5.The aim was to get optimal solutions for these rooms where “the life of the company” is managed, and obtaining a program that, in addition to being integrated at the aesthetic level, provides practical solutions for work meetings.

One of the most significant architectural buildings ever undertaken in Andalusia

Over 600 workstations, with accessories, installed in just over one month into one of the most significant architectural buildings ever undertaken in Andalusia. Each room presenting a challenge to integrate the furniture into meeting rooms, training rooms, courts as well as task and executive positions; always with an eye to be sympathetic to the subtle colour pallet. This was the remit for Forma 5.

The City of Justice in Cordoba has been a challenge to Forma 5 that could only be solved in one way: by seeking and obtaining the trust of the customer and the team of architects involved in the project. Set against one of the most demanding programmes :- F25,Sentis,Travel,Plural and other ranges provided solutions to all the functions required by the people performing all the key judicial functions in Cordoba. The building has been awarded the highest energy efficiency ratings. This was aided by integrating furniture developed from a single source that ultimately contributed to the overall architectural affect.

A project of this magnitude requires careful study. The justice rooms required a special finish to the furniture that provided contrast to, but didn’t clash with, the rest of the elements.

The City of Justice in Cordoba, opened its doors back in September 2017,but the relocation of its headquarters will not be completed until the beginning of 2018. All the key aspects are now operational and the Forma 5 portfolio has been adapted, customized, supplied and serviced to ensure the final result will exceed the client’s expectations.

They have been 2 years of research in a totally innovative concept on the market, bet on a sure thing that it will suppose a revolution for the user.

But so much effort cannot depend only on a good product, so it has also developed powerful Marketing and Communication campaign to announce and try the amazing 3.60.

The most important actions to emphasize the 3.60 Task Chair are:

Microsite with the information of the chair will lodge. This microsite has an innovative, technical and attractive design.
• Video: the commercial video that catches the attention of the spectator and transmits the emotions of the product; another video that highlights the innovative and technical character of the chair, underline the process of product development; and a third that explains in a didactic way, the 3.60 ajustments.
• A catalogue with images that the product highlights and that summarizes the benefits of the new dynamic balancing system of 3.60.
• Technical features.
• The Tecnalia quality mark certificate.
• Biomechanic and ergonomic analysis of the task chair.
• 2.0 Communication.

These actions pretend to present 3.60 in an attractive way and to raise a strong interest in this Task Chair. But, undoubtedly, the best marketing tool will be … to test the chair. The conviction will be absolute.

Umana compares the chair with the benefits that it produces to be sitting on a pilates ball

Forma 5 has been collaborating for some years with Biomechanic research as the IBV (Biomechanic Institute of Valencia) or Umana, specialists in Biomechanic and Occupational Health. As consequence, many of the programs of their portfolio are certified after having passed successfully the tests and their pertinent proofs.

A few months ago, Forma 5 sent the 3.60 Task Chair to the Umana company, which has been responsible to test and elaborate a report that has resulted a highly satisfactory grade.

In this way, Umana compares the chair with the benefits that it produces to be sitting on a pilates ball, because when the ball swings, the body is in a constant tension and looking for the balance. In case of 3.60, thanks to the mechanism that allows it to swing head on and laterally, in this case with a synchro movement, the task chair produces the same effect. In addition, it is combined with a better support thanks to the backrest, the armrests and the lumbar adjustment.

For this reason, with the continued use in the office, it produces benefits for the body such as the improvement of the physical condition, the contact comfort, the posture of the body, the comfort in the back and even it prevent sweating.

Other certificate programs are Eben or Sentis.
