2. The Vitra Index SystemIt is difficult for office users to formulate their requirements. Vitra has therefore developed a simple index system, which serves as a tool between employees, management and architects.3. User WorkshopVitra focuses on people, as independent studies show that motivation and efficiency peak in well outfitted spaces. In workshops moderated by Vitra, employees actively participate in the planning process: who needs what space, who communicates with whom and who needs what additional equipment.
4. Layout PlanningThe results of the workshops are implemented during the planning phase producing a layout that includes team distribution and space allocation.5. Interior DesignThe layout is planned with interior design elements that will promote the correct functioning of the future work environment. Sociological and emotional aspects are also taken into consideration in addition to division of space, furnishings and technology so that the workspace also becomes a living space.
6. Interior DesignThe choice of materials enables the elaboration of a unique concept that implements employee requirements while reflecting the client brand. This includes a rough concept for lighting and acoustics.7. Interior DesignWalls, floors, ceilings or walkways are not the only elements to be defined. Furnishings and details such as cushions, accessories and screens also make a decisive contribution to the overall appearance of the new environment. The end result should not inspire the client but the people that work there. Implementation begins upon completion of the planning phase.
