       The first quarter 2023 confirmed a slowdown of orders for Italian woodworking and furniture technology. The quarterly survey by the Studies Office of Acimall (the association of Italian woodworking technology manufacturers) shows a negative trend for the fourth quarter in a row. This information must be evaluated accurately, especially considering the exceptional growth that characterized the second part of 2020 and the whole year 2021, recording a trend that has been unprecedented in the past decades. The slowdown that started in the second quarter of 2021 can be considered “physiological”, but the negative trend in the January-March 2023 period causes some worries.        In the first quarter of this year, orders recorded a 25.7 percent reduction compared to the same period of the previous year, due to decreasing demand from international markets (down by 20.6 percent) and the significant shrinkage of the domestic market (minus 38.9 percent).        It should also be noticed that the period of comparison, January-March 2022, was still an expansion phase, with significant growth rates in Italy and abroad, supported by public subsidies in many countries that, on one hand, really helped many industries overcome the consequences of the global sanitary emergency, but on the other, altered the normal evolution of the market.        The reduction of orders is reflected onto the months of ensured production, dropping from an average of 6.1 months in October-December 2022 to 5.2 months in January-March 2023.        The inflation trend – which in 2022 was in line with the economy in general – seems to be braking in the first months of 2023: the increase of sales prices for Italian wood and furniture technology was limited to 0.6 percent. Source:ACIMALL        The opinions collected by the quality survey for the quarter under scrutiny reveal that the interviewed companies expect substantial stability of production (71 percent), while 24 percent indicates a growing trend and 5 percent a decrease. Employment is increasing according to 14 percent of the sample, stationary for 81 percent, decreasing for 5 percent. Available stocks are stable for 62 percent of the interviewees, while the remaining 38 percent is equally divided between those who indicate an increase (19 percent) and a reduction (19 percent).        The forecast survey gives an overview of the scenarios that might emerge in the short term: 38 percent of the sample expect a substantial stability of orders from the foreign markets; such orders will decrease according to 38 percent and further increase according to 24 percent. Looking at the Italian market, 57 percent of the interviewees predict substantial stability, 19 percent increasing orders and 24 percent decreasing orders. Source:ACIMALL

Linear systems from igus as space-saving solution in award-winning furniture design

  • 2023-02-03

drylin linear guides ensure a clean pull-out in the multifunctional cube SQR        Living, working and cooking in confined spaces is currently part of everyday life for many people worldwide. This is why more and more practical furniture such as the multifunctional cube SQR is in demand. A square solution that combines kitchen, workplace and dining table. To create plenty of storage space, the inventor relied on the lubrication-free and long-lasting drylin linear guides from igus.        At the end of 2016, Daniel Pracht lived in a small flat with no kitchen. The then budding master carpenter developed a practical quadratic solution: the SQR. A multifunctional cube with an extendable induction area, with which one or more persons can not only cook, but also stay, work and live in a compact space. Perfectly suited, especially at times when a home office is more than ever, the order of the day. To create a lot of storage space, the inventor was looking for a pull-out solution. Normal roller guides took up too much installation space and did not meet the requirements for a simple and elegant design. Daniel Pracht found what he was looking for in the drylin linear systems from igus: "The guides convinced me right from the start, both in terms of design and smooth operation."   Industry and furniture technology = functionality and design        When choosing the drylin WSQ linear system, one decisive criterion was not only the functionality - the wear-resistant and long-lasting opening and closing of the drawers - but also the processing of the rails. "The combination of the aluminium of the rail and the oak of the cube complements one another, which was very important to me. Just like the square shape of the guide", explains Pracht. Each of the five drawers contains two guides. Liners made of the high-performance iglidur J200 polymer ensure smooth operation. It is lubrication-free and maintenance-free, thanks to the use of solid lubricants. A great advantage in potential contact with food. Furthermore, dirt and dust cannot adhere to the bearings. The guides and bearings are easy to clean with household chemicals. An all-round hygienic solution.   Quadratic and compact design convinces professional juries        The concept convinced not only the inventor himself, but also a wide audience. Daniel Pracht won the Design Prize at the exhibition of masterpieces at his school. After that everything went very fast. Due to the increasing attention of his furniture, he registered a utility model protection, secured the brand name "SQR" and founded BODI e.K. as the registered merchant of a new distribution channel for his special piece of furniture. Pracht took part in the Red Dot Design Award in 2018 and won the award. In 2019 he was nominated for the German Design Award.   Source:igus Taiwan
