evolve your environment
Question: What do you do when the rules keep changing? (2020 we’re talking to you). Answer: You evolve. It’s one thing changing behaviours like wearing face masks and social distancing but how do you evolve your physical working space? Funny you should ask…at AFI, we have just the solution.
OCTANORM®is the world’s leading construction system – used widely in the exhibition space for creating versatile brand displays and stands. And in 2020 the system comes into its own, offering space dividing solutions and structures to a range of wider industries. These modular solutions can be used to create retail pop-ups, brand activations, healthcare cabins, safe dining experiences and modular working spaces, well into 2021 and beyond.
First developed in Germany during the 1960s, the OCTANORM® system combines efficiency, flexibility and individuality all centred around a signature tension lock. Globally renowned as a first-class construction system, it can work as either freestanding or with rigs, with illumination or digital screens, fabric, glass or perspex panels – making it a popular choice across the board.
Glenn Watson, Managing Director of AFI Branding says: “As we’ve seen Victorian shopping centres reopen their doors recently, the rising vacancy rates have never been more prevalent. At AFI we’re seeing an increased demand for short term retail fit-outs that are cost effective but also on brand. I have no doubt in 2021 we’ll be seeing far more retail pop-ups as the industry gets back on its feet.”
