Nature has been an essential element in contemporary design and office design in particular should make frequent use of it. Inspirations drawn from nature have a positive effect on physical and mental health of people, and workers who are surrounded by plants and natural materials feel much happier. Therefore, Balma deciding on natural materials, has equipped its Simplic system with minimalist, easy to assemble legs made of solid oak wood.
Join us at the UK's leading independent design festival. Come and say hello to the Balma-team and see our new Reception Counter as well as many more ranges displayed our shared showroom. Only 3 minutes from Farringdon Station.

BALMA is making its debut at the Fourth Good Design Forum held on 7 December 2016 in Warsaw.
900 visitors, architects, interior decorators, designers, a large number of speakers, numerous debates, discussions and talks on design issues – all that constitutes Good Design Forum, being the very place to discuss everything and anything that concerns design. This year the Forum is going to address the intriguing question of “ Being Polish, being young, being fine – is the market ready to get to know the design of Poland?”
During many presentations and speeches we are going to tackle the following problems like the current state of the Polish design, or if Polish design projects can compete against projects prepared by foreign design offices, or how to promote the design which is indigenous to Poland, or if the Polish design can be competitive and profitable, and finally, if, and how soon, the good design will reach every household in Poland.
As part of our presence at the Forum there will be “Case Study:on Balma: Plus-Oriented Office” on 7 December 2016 from 13.00 to 13.20. The presentation will take place in Audytorium Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN (The Auditorium of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews) at ul. Anielewicza 6 in Warsaw.
