This year saw Aritco participating in a number of events and exhibitions around the world. Providing the chance for people to not only see our lifts but experience them in action is always a gratifying experience. And we relish the opportunity to discuss important topics such as sustainability with other leaders and stakeholders across industries. This was especially true this year in China, where many in-person events were back for the first time since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Stockholm Design Week
Scandinavian design drives the aesthetics of all our lifts, so we love reconnecting with our roots in this always-inspiring weeklong exhibition that takes place in spaces around the Swedish capital. This year, Aritco hosted a panel discussion on futureproofing the built environment, expanding on the findings of our research paper The 100-Year Home.
We were honored to participate in the inaugural edition of Design Shenzhen, an extension of Design Shanghai, showcasing international brands in one of China’s key economic centers. The theme for this first edition was Regenerative Design – Design for Wellbeing: Humanity, Sustainability, Technology, exploring both human and environmental wellbeing, and we were excited to take part in the exchange of ideas that took place during the event.
This was Aritco’s second time participating in the experiential exhibition Casa Decor in Madrid, Spain, which brings together art, architecture and design. For the first time, Aritco hosted its own space in the exhibition, which took place in an iconic building in the heart of Madrid’s Golden Mile. The Zaguán de Aritco (Aritco Hall) showcased our Aritco HomeLift, featuring the Geometric DesignWall, in a stunning entryway created in partnership with interior design firm AS Interiorista.
This year was particularly exciting in the APEC market with the first Design Shanghai exhibition since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year also marked the event’s 10th edition, a fitting moment for Aritco to debut the Aritco HomeLift Compact in Asia for the first time since it launched late last year. Aritco also hosted two panel discussions with leading Chinese architects, designers and builders to discuss how to future-proof buildings with a focus on sustainability.
Sustainable Design Summit China
We rounded off the year with the Sustainable Design Summit China in Beijing. With a focus on innovation and collaboration, this event examined the present and future of the industry through the lens of sustainability. Aritco exhibited at the summit again this year. However, we were also proud to participate in the panel “Towards a Greener Future” to discuss advanced concepts around building sustainable buildings and creating sustainable businesses.
