29 March 2024

Interzum Guangzhou is the most influential trade fair for the furniture production, woodworking machinery and interior decor industry in Asia. Held in conjunction with China International Furniture Fair, the exhibition covers the entire industry vertical. With a view to current developments in the materials sector, the trade fair places a special focus on sustainable and circular innovations.

Biocircular materials for furniture and design

The most far-reaching developments can currently be observed, particularly in the biological cycle. Regardless of whether it is panel materials made from residues from the agricultural industry, foams for upholstered furniture made from seagrass or biocircular leather substitutes based on hemp, the range of material innovations suggests that the green transformation is in full swing.

At the invitation of the organizers of Interzum Guangzhou from Koelnmesse in Beijing, Hon.-Prof. Dr. Sascha Peters will present material innovations to promote circular business models in the furniture industry and its suppliers.
