MOODBOARD

Current trend is moving towards soft, fabric, patterns with minimum wood and metals, mostly with matte finish; which is clear from the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Earthy colors are mainly used; not that popped up in the environment.
Research on office spaces reflects the importance of acoustic materials.

install; even a single worker can fix

it without much help.
