Daimler Chrysler new Taipei headquartersFor specifiers of products or services in a commercial building.

Like or not, the office is where many people spend the majority of their waking hours. Good commercial interior design - combining such factors such as space planning and ergonomics as well as aesthetics - has a huge part to play in attracting and retaining staff. This edition focuses on office design, including Daimler Chrysler's new Taipei headquarters.

We also review the latest in apartment design and other major commercial projects.

With more than 50 editions in six countries, Trends has a strong reputation for innovation. Our business is ideas - fresh, new, practical ideas. We write about them in a clear, down-to-earth way and illustrate them with superb photography. And, as always, we present a selection of products and services from designers, manufacturers and retailers.

Happy reading.
