Ritter Sport

Waldenbuch, Germany

This long-established German company distributes its chocolate-based products in 100 countries. For the purpose of improving communications and simultaneously optimising the use of floor space at the corporate headquarters, single and group offices are to be replaced by an open-plan work landscape. The decision was made to test a new layout in a delineated area within the framework of a pilot project. As each department has different requirements, Vitra involved the employees in planning workshops to evaluate the range of needs and then developed a concept for the pilot office, which was selected by the company for implementation. An especially striking feature is the choice of Pacific Chairs in many different colours, referencing the similarly colourful spectrum of the firm's product portfolio. The pilot design is being used by a department of about 30 employees, and an analysis shall determine whether this concept will be rolled out over the entire office space.
