Record attendance at the Osmo Stand in Munich

Not only did the BAU 2015 break records with around 251,200 visitors from the 19th to the 24th January 2015, but also Osmo Holz und Color GmbH & Co. KG: lively crowds visited the bright, open stand from the wood specialist around the clock. “We had expected many visitors, but with each day our high expectations were once again exceeded,” summarised Thorsten Mehlin, Sales Director at Osmo, the response enthusiastically.

Wood in shape, colour and structure on two levels

The possibilities of surface processing and the facets of the fashionable colour grey form the focus of this year’s fair stand from Osmo. What two years ago began with “Inside-Out” boards is now continued in the areas garden, timber cladding, interior wood and edge-glue panels:  structured wood surfaces, which on flooring, walls and ceilings both inside and outside set modern accents through their special look. In Munich visitors could see the variety and feeling of possible structures for themselves, for example in the screen Bella Vista Nature with the surfaces “ axed”, “hand-planed” and “structured” or as part of modernisation classic profiled wood wall panels in the interior. In terms of colour, the currently stylish grey tones dominated the fair stand: whether as “greying finishes” in Natural Oil Woodstain and Natural Oil Woodstain Effect or the new pressure impregnated Pine in the colour tone grey – from flooring to screens and further to cladding, the trend is clear. In 2015 colour comes into play with the four new bright colour tones for Osmo Wood Wax Finish. Our product range for the professional user also lures with innovations such as the Hardener for Oil Stain and the colour tone Anthracite Grey for Polyx® Professional Color Oil, which were presented together with other wood finishes in the new sales shelving system for the specialised retail trade. Not least, live demonstrations attracted many users. From all corners of the fair stand, conversations in English could be heard. “The growing internationality suites us nicely,” according to Mehlin. “The export plays a large role for Osmo and the BAU always offers many possibilities to make new contacts. During the course of the week, our partners from all over the world were present.” This year’s fair was a sweeping success for Osmo. The dates for the BAU 2017 are already marked on the calendar.
