Häfele, the international leader in Interior Functionality, launch edits state-of-the-art Design Showroom in the heart of South Bombay on 15th September 2017. The spacious, 10,000 square feet showroom unites globally acclaimed interior trends with innovative functionality through interactive and functional display settings; bringing every imaginable design to reality. This showroom is Häfele‘s second internationally designed retail facility in Mumbai and the very first in the southern region of the city. Located at Mahalaxmi-West, the busiest shopping hub of Mumbai, the showroom will cater to the interior sensibilities and design expectations of the ever-updated “SoBo” lifestyles.
The Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany – Dr. Jürgen Morhard, has inaugurated the showroom together with Mr. Jürgen Wolf – Managing Director, Hafele South Asia.
At the onset of the launch, Mr. Wolf says. – Stylish Hardware Fittings that give you the best functionality for your individual application in your business or residence are hard to select from a catalogue; neither can they be imagined or assumed. The Häfele Design Showroom at South Bombay has been designed to unlock the ideal design inspirations through live displays that allow you to experience the functionality of our products and solutions. Moreover, with increasing real estate prices and diminishing living spaces, the trend for innovative and space-saving interior solutions has gained popularity among city-dwellers. Häfele has closely observed this trend and put-together a range of the most space-optimizing solutions with a continuing promise of ‚More life per meter square‘. You will experience this first-hand when you see our intelligent showroom displays that efficiently manage space and functionality without compromising on comfort or design.

Quite inherent to what they do, Häfele is a strong believer of the mantra that ‘Form follows Function’ and the trick is to combine Functionality with Aesthetics and make them work in almost unperceivable unison. This is explicitly displayed in all Häfele Design Showrooms worldwide.
