Forma 5 has set its sights on conquering the British market, and more specifically of showcasing its products in London. Originally, this challenge was based on a desire to show its complete, professional range in a tough, competitive market.
The company resolved to open its own London headquarters, serving both as a showroom to display its products and communicate the professionalism and brand image of Forma 5. The challenge was met in February 2009, when the firm opened its showroom in Clerkenwell, a London area filled with shops specialising in office furniture.
Since then, the showroom has racked up a multitude of projects in collaboration with prestigious, renowned British companies. It has also become a well-known brand popular with people working in the interior design industry.
Along with the companies Actiu and Dynamobel, Forma 5 is now one of three Spanish firms which has opened its own showroom in recent years. Clerkenwell is very much London’s nerve centre of architecture and design – indeed, Clerkenwell Design Week, an event celebrating both disciplines, was held there from May 24 to 26.
Forma 5 is a large holding company specialising in furniture for offices and public spaces. It offers a complete service of supplying furniture with added value founded on good design and innovative technology. It has a presence in over 30 countries. Its offices in southern Spain measure over 60,000 sq m of useable space and boast a team of over 400 employees.
