New ways of working and new spaces assigned for doing so. A change of approach to the professional world, influenced primarily by technology, which comes to the fore in the office where it reshapes the dynamics. This is the direction taken by Fantoni with its innovative furniture, a preview of which was given at Orgatec.
Smart Environment is the great breakthrough, intelligent furniture that is the outcome of the collaboration between the company and eFM.
The office is turned into a dynamic reality that opens onto broader social and creative settings. It is a place to work, imagine, plan and interact. In this new concept, the function of furniture is primary: open spaces, flexible structures that match the creative and professional flexibility of the users, comfortable products that improve wellbeing at work; but, above all, integrated technological innovation in offices and furniture, the so-called Internet of Things, which improves communication and collaboration by creating new models of work. This is the outcome, through the creation of the Smart Environment, of the partnership between Fantoni and eFM (a brand founded in 2000 with the aim of bringing innovation to the property market and improving the wellbeing of people in the workplace, providing technologies for the digital transformation of properties).
The first in the product family is the plug&play intelligent desk, which incorporates movement sensors that display, via web or mobile, the state of occupation of the workplaces (booked and occupied, booked but unoccupied, occupied but not booked or free).
Smart Environments can, moreover, be integrated with the Building Management System (BMS) and Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) to allow equipment to be automatically turned on and off and to activate maintenance service producers.
Fantoni’s vision of work in the new millennium has created a series of products that put the user and their needs at the centre: from the Hub system of Matteo Ragni to the Acoustic Room, from Lift-Up tables to containers with micro-perforated doors for soundproofing.For a complete, intelligent collection that moves from the global to the local, from the one to the many.
