At Maars the International Dealer Meeting 2022 took place on 19th and 20th of September. It was an honor to welcome at least 45 world wide Maars dealer partners. And with lots of interaction, feedback and useful input we took important actions towards our shared mission… Maars as the provider of flexible wall solutions in the world.

  • During the IDM 2022 we have witnessed again the strength of connection. All worldwide dealers had the opportunity to not only reconnect with Maars again but also reconnect with many experienced dealer partners from all over the world.

A key theme for this IDM was modularity. It was beneficial for lots of dealers to learn more about the importance of modularity and the contribution of Maars products to sustainability.
Besides this important key theme: We visited project sites, got inspired by a key note speaker and of course the dealers had the chance to be the first to witness new developments and product introductions.

We really appreciate the contribution, that is the only reason why we could make the IDM such a success.

The Digital Experience Design team at Gensler partnered with the premium environment product manufacturer Maars Living Walls to integrate Transparent OLED into the next level of living and working space. This was accomplished through the M923. Digital  – a modular partition system that allows physical spaces to come to life with visual information that supports almost any task imaginable.

Lobby Welcome Experience

Gensler demonstrated the power of this technology by creating an unforgettable hospitality moment at the exhibit entrance. Utilizing augmented reality, viewers witnessed vivid petals animate outward from a physical vase on a counter, and float into a calendar display. It becomes quickly apparent that Transparent OLED is not just another display – but that it is a window into an entire new world of possibilities.

“I see Transparent OLED having endless possibilities. Seeing it applied to many different applications while we’re here [at OIF] really makes me believe we can integrate it within all our wall systems.” – Richard Camacho, Maars Living Wall

Flex Space

Further into the exhibit, the flex space showcased an even greater range of possibilities for this new category of display. Utilizing Transparent OLED Technology, users can access information or peer through it, which allows the same space to become a conference room or a yoga retreat with the simple push of a button. This design allows occupants to seamlessly transition from a holographic conference call into an emotionally recharging meditation. Never before have rejuvenation and productivity been so closely aligned.

“Our environment can shift rapidly with the Transparent OLED. Having digital display technology embedded in your environment enables the end user to rapidly change that environment, to meet the needs of the people who are using that space. They can go from making it a place for a hybrid meeting to some place for meditation, relaxation, health, wellness, to a social event where you’re supporting community and culture within your environment.” – Michael Schneider, Gensler

In the past year the monumental Shell headquarter in The Hague, The Netherlands have been fully renovated. A building with still an old exterior but fully sustainable and brand new from the inside! For this extensive renovation we have delivered and installed our glass partition walls. With these walls known for their flexibility we ensure a sustainable and future proof interior design.

Shells Dutch headquarter is a 25.000 square meter building which is a national monument dated from 1917. The building has been used as an office for over a century. During the renovation this magnificent old building has been made future proof.

Maars delivered its Panorama and Horizon wall systems. Both walls are certified with Cradle to Cradle Silver. The glass walls are combined with Flush Glass Deur which creates a seamless connection with the walls.

Panorama is a double glazed wall system known for its high flexibility without having to compromise on acoustic performances. Horizon is a single glazed wall system, the main feature of Horizon is its minimalistic design. Both glass walls are on one or both sides installed using Polar White glass, this creates a really unique design.

Maars products are specified by the highest quality. We always put our greatest effort in constant improvements. In addition to quality, Environmental Assurance is an equally important topic for us. When producing highly sustainable products, sustainable production processes are just as important.

  • To guarantee Maars quality and environmental assurance, our processes are certified conform the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.

Every three years our organization needs to be recertified by an independent certified party. These audits recently took place in 2021. We are happy to announce that we have successfully completed the audits.
The ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates are extended for another three years. Reach out to our product specialists for more information about our certificates. 

Life Time Work is Life Time’s branch of co-working facilities. Their new Corp 2 headquarters office was designed to align the aesthetics with the Life Time Work spaces. Maars walls are integrated in all Life Time Work locations as a continuous design element.

Our dealer partner Intereum delivered the Maars walls for Life Time Work’s Headquarter “Corp 2”. For this project Horizon glazed walls with Carré are installed, together with the frameless glass sliding doors which complements to the aesthetics of the Horizon – Carré walls.

For the conference rooms, monitors and video conference hardware were integrated. For that we used String2 walls with back painted glass surrounding the monitor.
