NOVELTY - Balma FLOO

Balma Floo is a project dedicated to green office. It is system of geometric metal plant stands and shelves, allowing the integration of plants into the working environment in a smart and modern fashion. As well as acting as lightweight planters, they can also serve as magnetic accessory boards, allowing various items to be hung.

Balma Floo addresses people’s natural need for interacting with nature in a workplace.
Biophilic design makes use of potted plants to create natural work and life conditions. In offices with no plants the work is less effective, whereas in offices with lots of plants the indicators are much better. It is estimated that the difference may reach even 15%.

There are 4,000 available configurations to choose from.

NEW DEVELOPMENT - get to know L2 system - a system of modular locker cabinet.

Small storage lockers, providing a variety of alternative choices. Locker cabinets are units of small compartments locked with a key or combination lock, with an optional paper slot drop. A practical solution to store personal belongings in offices, changing rooms or dining facilities. A well-thought out structure which enables limitless configurations and arrangements, but most of all, which permits an ergonomic design of even the tiniest space.


A perfect solution for open-plan offices. Ideal for large areas divided into work zones, rest areas, and dining facilities. Critical for those people who often stay outside of the office or are not ”assigned” to one and the same desk. A large diversity of cabinet front and body colours allows to individually design the space in order to satisfy the needs of every interior.

Thank you for visiting our stand at ORGATEC 2018

The visionary concepts of the new culture of work as well as the contemporary space for business together with the call for creativity have been the main themes dominating the Orgatec Fair this year. Balma once again has proved that it knows best how to fit in with these trends. Those very many visitors that came to our stand could witness that themselves. We have welcomed this year’s edition of the fair with the joint exhibition of Balma and Noti brand. Thanks to that, we were able to present the contemporary idea of the versatility of a work space in a comprehensive way.

Let's see how it was!

Revolutionary! Balma STEPPS modular shelving units!

The constructed elements allow to build wall shelving units, corner or free-standing units accessible from both sides. The stable structure is obtained thanks to metal ladders, which are connected by shelves.

The enormous diversity of the elements of Balma STEPPS permits to create a product that will satisfy various individual needs. The standard heights ranging from 1 to 7OH, 3 shelf widths as well as cabinets, boxes and sliding doors will allow to create and tailor the modules to the specific functional and aesthetic needs.

BALMA at Warsaw Home 2018

The third edition of Warsaw Home will be held on October, 4 – 7, 2018 at Katowicka 62 Street in Nadarzyn. We are looking forward to seeing you at the BALMA  stand F2.3 in Hall F.

Balma is a partner of the 11th edition of the Gdynia Design Days festival, which will be held on July 6-15, 2018.

Balma is a partner of the 11th edition of the Gdynia Design Days festival, which will be held on July 6-15, 2018.

Gdynia Design Days is an annual festival showcasing the latest trends and best practices in the field of design. Brimming with inspiring exhibitions, lectures, workshops and discussions the program is aimed at both professionals, young entrepreneurs and design enthusiasts looking for inspiration for creative activities and creative leisure time. For the 10 days in July Gdynia becomes the best summer meeting place for the design industry. GDD is also the only festival of design in Poland during which the created prototypes have a chance of being implemented. We believe that an intensive exchange of experiences and cooperation provide an opportunity to catch the wind in the sails for the following year and that the ideas born during GDD have the power to spread throughout Poland and abroad. The organizer of the festival is the Design Centre / Pomeranian Science and Technology Park Gdynia / City of Gdynia

This year's slogan is ERROR, which represents a number of meanings. How should we understand them?
In Latin, “error” means “mistake”, and as a verb it relates to journeys and wanderings. The word has been used for centuries, while today it is mostly associated with problems involving operating systems. It can also refer to clashes with rules and legal frameworks, a lack of understanding between people, unclear messages entering the public and virtual spheres.

As a result, we find ourselves in a constant state of imbalance, leading to the collapse of all the operating methods at our disposal. We are forced to seek effective, though often unconventional, solutions.

Our ever-changing reality demands we develop new skills at reading and reinterpreting codes. Too many options lead to an increase in frustration and greater margin for error. We thus arrive at a point of overload and excess – a time of error. Too many options, involving too much wealth, information and impulses from external sources, lead to polarised societies and eroded notions of freedom. Consequences include the loosening of family and social ties and a reduced sense of belonging. Emotional needs are met with virtual relationships, while the human touch is replaced with attempts to connect with machines. Being “offline” has become a luxury inaccessible to many, as it becomes ever harder for us to avoid relentlessly personalised advertising. Every day, we are offered useless innovations and tech, the sort which imposes new needs rather than meeting those already in existence.

We are faced with the challenge of having to re-evaluate our needs and re-define shared priorities. The aim is then to achieve balanced progress, ensuring a sense of safety and purpose. The responsibility for the future is in everyone's hands, but it is designers who take on the role of pioneers. This task involves identifying, analysing and trying to solve a whole host of problems. Do we know where to go next?

Gdynia has for some time been recognised as an innovative city, capable of expanding economic and civic horizons. The Polish seafaring trade evolved here, and it was the Gdynia Sea Terminal which saw the launch of legendary transatlantic ocean liners, carrying thousands of Poles on to their new lives abroad.

In July, during Gdynia Design Days we will present our own vision of contemporary “errors”. Collectively, we will consider whether we are ready for potential “break downs” and if we have created a “backup copy” of our most valuable data.

The exhibitions which will be part of the festival will offer up accessible information and possible future scripts, while discussions and workshops will allow us to consider what shared paths can be taken next. Our festival is an opportunity to revise current operating methods and a chance to seek new strategies. It is high time we defined the sort of lives we want, or rather how we can define our limits.



SIMPLIC conference tables nominated for DOBRY WZÓR 2018 Award

We are more than happy to say that SIMPLIC line of conference tables with wooden legs and nano-laminate table tops has received a recommendation for DOBRY WZÓR 2018 in the category of Work Space. The idea underlying SIMPLIC conference tables is the universality and flexibility of conference solutions. Thanks to the well thought-out concept of this sophisticated line, we have managed to achieve technological and aesthetic cohesion. SIMPLIC stands for simplicity – it is both the simplicity of the form and structure as well as the simplicity of the usage.

SIMPLIC conference tables with wooden, minimalist legs made of solid oak wood directly refer to nature, which should be treated as one of the best resources for inspiration for modern office design. Natural materials can positively affect our physical and mental health, and employees who are surrounded by such materials do feel much happier.

The line of  SIMPLIC conference tables with the plywood table tops and no-finger-print nano-laminate surface has been designed for demanding users. The unique material of SIMPLIC conference tables allows to create an elegant, aesthetic and modern office. With SIMPLIC tables that space will not only serve as an ideal meeting place, but it will also best represent the given company.

Announcing the winners of DOBRY WZÓR 2018 Competition is planned for autumn 2018.

BALMA at the Fourth Good Design Forum

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.

POLISH FURNITURE + MODA POLSKA (POLISH FASHION)

Going to work, attending important business meetings or participating in some other official situations – all of those require the proper dress code. Nowadays, the business code is not as strict as it used to be and it is allowed to take different steps to diversify one’s style. However, that freedom could turn out to be tricky because there is a thin line between what will be perceived as “right” or “wrong”. The new project by Moda Polska will guide you how to bring out the best in you, how to emphasise the best qualities of your body shape and, at the same time, how to “smuggle in” some elements revealing your unique style and character. The photos were taken by Sebastian Zieliński, whereas Rafał Orłowicz was responsible for the styling. The photo session took place in BALMA showroom.

Open Doors - BALMA Showroom in Wrocław

On 20 November 2015 a new system of office furniture PLUS was presented in BALMA Showroom in Wrocław. Wiktoria Lenart and Piotr Kuchciński - the designers of BALMA PLUS System took part in that event. The event also included a lecture entitled “Hybrid Workplaces – Trends in 2015”, which was delivered by Katarzyna Andrzejczyk-Briks – an art historian and a lecturer at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities and School of Form. 

City Cluster – from creation to implementation

As part of the umbrella conference called FROM CREATION TO IMPLEMENTATION, on 26 November we are going to discuss what the modern office should be like since it is no longer “a working machine” or some anonymous space full of desks and chairs. Nowadays, we expect the space to be designed in accordance with our personality traits, working style and age. We expect the space to be colourful and equipped with multifunctional furniture, whose task is to promote and support effectiveness, efficiency and performance in an entirely new way. Have you ever wondered how to make use of the inspirations coming from the areas of neuroscience, proxemics, ergonomics and psychology in order to design the space which will facilitate the work performance? Then come and listen to the lecture entitled “The Space Meant for People. The Office That Can Work Alongside with You”.

The official opening of BALMA showroom at ŁÓDŹ DESIGN FESTIVAL combined with a lecture by Katarzyna Andrzejczyk-Briks

Creating working spaces can be quite challenging to architects. We try to design the space in such a way as to make the most of every square millimetre. We also realise that the designed space needs to enhance work performance; where the space can either be a meeting place, a place where you can peacefully focus on your work or a place for the group work. The question is how to find the balance then. We wish to discuss that issue with you and other experts interested in that field during the official opening of BALMA showroom combined with a presentation entitled “The Office of the Future – How to Make It Successful and Effective” by Katarzyna Andrzejczyk-Briks.

Katarzyna Andrzejczyk-Briks is an art historian specialising in the history of interior design and trends in design. She is a lecturer in School of Form (a school of design) and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poznań and Warsaw. She is Wzornik (template) columnist in Stary Browar “B&R” magazine. She has been cooperating with IKEA, BALMA, NOTI, VOX Meble, Dekoma, and H&M Home. 

During the official opening our new System PLUS is going to be presented. The presentation will be made by the designers of that system - Wiktoria Lenart and Piotr Kuchciński.

Please note: the number of participants is limited.
