As the year 2020 draws to a close, we look back at some of the most unique and interesting workplace design projects to feature Flokk designs we have covered during the past 12 months
Designed by Interior Architect Sofia Kagg, the new workspace for the Swedish digital design agency is located in the Swedish city of Kalmar with stunning views of the Oland bridge.
With staff involved throughout the design process, the company's culture is reflected throughout, resulting in an original office design, full of colour and warmth that feels both homely and professional.
For the open office area, HÅG Capisco chairs have been specified, chosen for the flexibility they offer, and the health benefits provided by the HÅG in Balance technology that forms the basis of all of HÅG’s designs. They were also able to colour match the fabrics to their office aesthetics, choosing ‘Go Couture’ from Gabriel Fabrics.
The overall concept for the new Co-working space of Rosenholm Campus was creating light and dark spaces. The light spaces in the open atrium contrasting with the darker spaces for the main floor of each of the 10 buildings. The idea was to create a welcoming and bright atmosphere for the livelier and more collaborative shared spaces, whilst retaining a sense of intimacy and cosiness in others, including the restaurant area.
The interior architects specified RBM Noor chairs in several of the social areas, colour and material matched to the interior style. Krohnark chose RBM Noor due to the wide range of colour and material options. They wanted to keep a sense of continuity between zones, whilst allowing each area to have its own identity and personality. The flexibility of the RBM Noor, with multiple base, fabric, and material combinations meant they were able to adapt the chair to both the light and dark concepts they chose.
Originally a medieval castle, this impressive hotel estate received a radical makeover, with interior designers Reiters breathing new life into the hotel, creating a unified identity that not only spoke of the estate's heritage but also of luxury and modern comforts.
A popular location for conferences, and corporate events, the hotel features a suite of 15 individual locations, each with its own colour and identity. these distinct tones are implemented in the panelling, carpets and upholstery as well as the furniture in the rooms. RBM Noor chairs, supplied by furniture dealer Holmris, feature exclusively throughout the meeting rooms, chosen for their comfort, design and a wide variety of colour options.
Cutting edge visual effects studio Goodbye Kansas moved into their new workspace designed by Interior specialists Senab and architects Tengbom. Featuring an interior scheme every bit as exciting as the effects produced by Goodbye Kansas, it is also the only studio in Europe featuring the same motion-capture technology used to create the stunning visual effects for James Cameron’s Avatar film.
A combination of unorthodox design, strong ergonomics, comfort and durability led to the specification of Flokk chairs in almost every area, from work desks to studios and rest areas. The designs all received strong positive feedback from the employees when unveiled, and are a welcome addition to the overall aesthetic of the interior scheme.
Orkla’s new 16-storey headquarters is home to more than 900 employees and is the main base of operations for the biggest branded consumer goods company in the entire Nordic region, a state-of-the-art structure designed by NSW Architects and Interior Architects IARK.
With 2.1 chairs available in the workspace per employee, Flokk designs feature throughout, with Orkla’s physiotherapist deeply involved in the selection process to ensure employees had healthy and reliable furniture. Orkla was keen to reuse a variety of furniture from their previous office in keeping with their sustainability aims. A range of Flokk furniture, including HÅG H05, HÅG H09 and HÅG Capisco chairs were also recycled from the previous office.
Nordea’s ‘Less Waste Office’ is a benchmark in workplace sustainable design. Designed by Workplace Solutions, it comprises of 80% recycled and ecological materials and is the embodiment of the financial group’s efforts in the consistent reduction of their impact on the environment.
Flokk brand RBM provided a range of conference and cafeteria seating with the RBM Noor. Made using recycled metals and fully recyclable plastics, these chairs not only offer comfort and support but also are long-lasting and fully recyclable, with minimal chance of ending up in a landfill.
Norway’s first multi-disciplinary colour studio, Koi Colour Studio recently moved into their brand new offices in central Oslo. With colour their forte, they implemented their own design, using dusty lavender on the walls, deep red window frames and Yves Klein blue doors. This palette set the tone for furniture, lamps, and decorative objects.
Opting for HÅG Capisco chairs at their workstations, founder Dagny THurmann-Moe said "The HÅG Capisco is a chair with a very special and recognizable shape. It has become a classic and we love that they are made to last, and made to be repaired. Ergonomically, the chair allows us to work an entire day at the desk without becoming uncomfortable. The colour we chose for our office is coral. It is a great accent colour with all the warm shades of lavender, brick red, burgundy, salmon."
