Tecno opens its doors in korea
Tecno has inaugurated a new location in Seoul, in the Gangnam district, which is considered to be one of the chicest neighbourhoods in the capital, boasting the showrooms of the most prestigious international luxury brands and the headquarters of the country's main companies.
Tecno is boosting its presence in the Far East, pursuing its strategy of broaching international markets which has led to the opening of new offices in major international capitals, such as London, Madrid, Paris, New York, Dubai and Tokyo since 2013.
The new location spans 2 storeys and an overall surface area of 400 square metres, with huge windows overlooking Nonhyunro, the famous design street: the opening was achieved in partnership with Hanssem, a listed leading group in turnkey projects for the residential sector, which together with Tecno can now handle large and medium-sized projects in the office and top-level contract industry.
The premises, which feature the W80 partition wall system, exhibit an extensive selection of collections which share the distinctive design that characterises Tecno's entire product range: from Osvaldo Borsani's iconic products, P32, P40 and D70, to more recent products such as the Clavis table and workstation range or the Vela seats, which won the Compasso d'Oro award in 2016. A must-see product is Nomos, designed by Foster + Partners, which this year celebrates its thirtieth anniversary and remains one of Tecno's best-selling products, and is presented in both the table version and the office system.
Tecno thus confirms its role as a key player on the international scene, providing the community of Korean architects with its wealth of know-how on manufacturing, design and technological innovation: a team of professionals will be able to liaise with major clients and architects studios, to offer solutions for the workplace, communal areas and the home. The venue will therefore become a meeting place where architects, developers and contractors can develop bespoke solutions, drawing upon Tecno's experience and expertise in a wide array of fields.
