In order to have a successful product launch, it is essential to both listen closely to customers’ needs and stay current with market trends. That’s why industry conferences such as EuroCucina and the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) are so valuable. These gatherings present the perfect opportunity to view new innovations in design and speak with industry leaders, partners and customers to create the most innovative and on trend products for the North American market.
IWF Provides the Perfect Opportunity to Learn What Customers Like
The success of any product launch hinges on meeting the current and future needs of customers and staying in touch with the most design trends. Traveling to EuroCucina provided an opportunity to take a look at the very best in European design and bring fresh ideas back to the North American market. And though North American interior design trends closely follow those of Europe, the U.S. and Canadian markets clearly have their own preferences. IWF provided an opportunity to present new options in order to gain valuable feedback as to which products, finishes, and features are most attractive and desirable to potential customers.
New Products Launched for 2018
We are proud of the innovations we showcased at IWF and are excited to offer products that align with the hottest design trends of 2018 with a new shelving program. Our new shelving products focuses on modern shelving systems incorporating options with glass, aluminum, integrated profiles and various finishes.
- °e and °eCubed Shelving Systems – Aluminum is showing up more often in kitchens, due to its durability, light weight, and attractiveness. °e and °eCubed shelving systems capitalize on this trend, delivering modern aluminum structures with a variety of shelving options to create a complete system solution. (Launching Fall 2018)
- New Shelving Products – Fresh options in glass are used increasingly to feature items inside cabinets and add another dimension to lighting. To respond to these desires, Elements Designs has introduced new looks in glass shelving and aluminum frame glass shelving, as well as a satin glass insert option for our °eluma LED shelving.
- New Metallic Finishes, Backpainted Glass Colors, and Integrated Profiles – Metallic finishes and new glass colors continue to trend, along with integrated profiles, providing the sleek lines and modern look desired in contemporary kitchens. Element Designs will continue innovating in this area by introducing these new product options early next year, each reflecting individual taste preferences of the North American market based on valuable feedback obtained at IWF. We can’t wait to show you what’s in store for 2019! (In development)
- 3Form® Architectural Resin Inserts – Designers want more options and the attractive and eye-catching 3Form® architectural resin inserts in innovative styles such as the natural look of Fossil Leaf, the bold colors of Ensign, the industrial feel of strand iron, and many, many more.
