What are your client’s priorities at the moment?
“Value for money” and “environmentally sustainable products” is what our client’s are requesting. This is the focus of our design and manufacturing policy.
What is good design to you?
In our opinion, good design is a combination of Form and Function. Form being aesthetics that stand the test of time, and Function being products that meet our client’s needs. These products must also be manufactured from materials that offer environmental sustainability.
What does the future hold?
Even after 22 years in the industry, Head Office Group is still looking forward and continuing to design and manufacture innovative furniture systems for the Australian market. Our latest system, ’Vie’, is another example of this innovative approach to design and function.
