What brands and products are being specified? Which segments are thriving? Which are suffering? How has COVID impacted product development and sales in architecture and interior design?
These are questions that everyone in the industry is invested in. Product Intelligence, from Design Analytics and Designer Pages Pro, has answers to these questions and more.
Not only will you find specification reports for 2020 in 45 categories of furniture, flooring, architectural finishes, and textiles, but also extensive editorial focused on how A/D has been affected by and responded to the challenges of the pandemic:
- Which product categories performed well in 2020 and which did not
- How manufacturers reacted to the sudden demand for work-at-home furnishings
- Whether soft or solid flooring is better suited for virus protection
- Why mid-sized companies showed a trend toward rising specs
- Why cable and data infrastructure is a fundamental component of safe return
- The rise (and leveling of off) space dividers, desk screens, and mobile partitions
- Interviews with industry insiders from 3form, KI Furniture, Humanscale, OFS, Armstrong Flooring, and Interface
- Why in-person collaboration matters
- A look at the first phase of return-to-work
We wouldn’t necessarily call it our “COVID issue,” but the pandemic affected so many aspects of the industry that this focus was inevitable.
Ultimately, we discern a lot of difficulties and a lot of hope. The challenges of the past year have created huge opportunities—this is a theme throughout the issue.
