While searching for new office space, the managers of Switzerland's leading digital creative agency came across an industrial hall that had formerly been used as an automotive workshop. The planning process for the new one-storey office environment focussed on creating inspirational surroundings for some 40 employees by combining individual workstations with many other options: from communication clusters and privacy niches to conventional or informal meeting settings, from outdoor work spots to conversation areas in the coffee corner. The large, open interior is structured by 'islands' consisting of of black work tables and further divided by a curtain system. The curtains simultaneously serve as projection screens for digital content. Because the owners saw their own future-oriented ideas reflected in concepts by Vitra, they decided to furnish all of the spaces with products from the Vitra portfolio. The result is an office environment with a contrasting mix of exposed architectural elements and high-quality furnishings.
