Dhaka: Steelcase, world’s largest office furniture manufacturer and innovative workspace solutions provider, announced their entry in Bangladesh on March 14th opening new showroom in Dhaka with demonstration of a range of latest product innovations by them.
Developed in partnership with Work Space Technology, the new showroom at Ventura Triveni will further strengthen the presence of Steelcase in the Asia-Pacific region. After the launch of the Sri Lanka dealership in 2018, Steelcase has marked its entry into its second country in South-East Asia.
In a fast paced economy like Bangladesh, Steelcase’s user centric architecture, furniture and technology solutions will help the companies present in different sectors create workplaces that enable a meaningful people experience, while effectively optimising the use of space.
Though the domestic furniture market is growing at a rapid pace, the quality, especially in workplace management, lacks this kind of in depth knowledge and research.
The showroom opens doors to local and international businesses in Bangladesh, and will provide them with comprehensive workplace research, latest trends and an in-depth knowledge quotient from around the globe. The company is at the forefront of research, not only about the way people actually work but also how workplaces will look and feel like in the future.
Praveen Rawal, Managing Director, India and South-East Asia, Steelcase, said, “In an interconnected business world that is undergoing constant change, with the ability for individuals and teams to work anywhere, anytime, around the world, the ways people work and the workplaces are rapidly evolving. So, they need to support them to be their most productive and successful. We are happy to work with WST, who have a valuable experience in designing workplaces in Bangladesh and will provide the optimum workplace solutions to our customers.”
Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury, Managing Partner, Work Space Technology, said, “We are delighted to partner with Steelcase, a world leader in the design and manufacture of furniture for commercial workplaces. Our joint synergies will contribute to new designs and enhance productivity in Bangladeshi workplaces. WST is already deeply engaged in designing commercial interiors, and I believe this partnership will add immense value to workplaces in the country. Employee engagement and wellbeing are issues of growing importance for companies, and we look forward to offering our expert solutions to address the emerging needs.”
