Continuing its spree of bringing design inspiration closer to people, Häfele launched its state-of-the-art Design Showroom in the heart of south Mumbai last Friday, 15th September. The spacious 10,000 sft showroom, located at Mahalaxmi-West, showcases globally acclaimed interior trends with innovative functionality through interactive and functional display settings; bringing every imaginable design to reality. This design showroom is Häfele‘s second internationally designed retail facility in Mumbai, and first in the southern region of the city. The showroom was inagurated by Counul General of Federal Republic of Germany, Dr Jürgen Morhard, together with Jürgen Wolf, managing director of Hafele South Asia.
Stylish hardware fittings that give the best functionality for individual application in business or residence are hard to select from a catalogue; neither can they be imagined or assumed, said Wolf. “The Häfele Design Showroom at south Mumbai has been designed to unlock the ideal design inspirations through live displays that allow you to experience the functionality of our products and solutions,” he shared. Moreover, with increasing real estate prices and diminishing living spaces, the trend for innovative and space-saving interior solutions has gained popularity among city-dwellers, Wolf added. “Häfele has closely observed this trend and put together a range of the most space-optimising solutions with a continuing promise of ‘more life per meter square’. You will experience this first-hand when you see our intelligent showroom displays that efficiently manage space and functionality without compromising on comfort or design,” he said.
Häfele’s Design Showroom Concept
“As a leading player in interior functionality Hafele beleives that design concepts and ideas can be better understood when they are experienced in live set ups. This is the ideology that backs the company’s initiative of establishing state-of-the-art design showrooms; where customers can walk in and experience world-class functionality, seamlessly rooted in latest global design trends,“ asserted Wolf. He informed that a typical layout of any of Häfele’s Design Showroom includes real-time displays of the company’s many product functionalities, including a live kitchen which is equipped with storage areas, appliances and other utilities.
Häfele has for the first time introduced a dedicated display room for Project Customers at the new showroom. The Project Room Area simulates Häfele’s 360 degree project services proposition, which promises a spectrum of solutions ably backed by technical support and advisory services offered for the entire duration of a project. For instance there is live display of door hardware catering to different door applications like fire-rated doors, glass doors, residential doors and hotel room doors. These displays are complemented with hardware products like panic exit devices, patch fittings and digital door solutions.

With the launch of this exclusive showroom Häfele has introduced eight of its latest innovations in interior solutions, catering to every application of a given interior space.
