At the trade fair for modern work environments the surface specialists of Continental made the new upholstery material laif® VyP Nappa breathe thus amazing the trade fair visitors.

“New visions of work” was the motto of Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. The motto of the Continental trade fair exhibit was “Reimagining seating comfort”. The new upholstery material, laif® VyP Nappa, is the absolute product highlight in the area of surface design for modern seating furniture in offices. The trade fair visitors were able to experience the breathability of the new material first-hand at the stand: the laif® VyP demonstrator showed the principle behind its function. In addition, a comfortable chair invited guests to sit on it, feel it, and conduct professional discussions. Thus, the trade fair visitors were not only able to assess the breathability of the German Design Award Winner 2019, but also its visual and tactile qualities. They came to a positive conclusion: The revolutionary upholstery material, laif VyP® Nappa, creates a new dimension of comfort for seating furniture in the entire office area and makes even extended sitting in offices a pleasure.
