Premiere at ORGATEC: In Cologne, Swedish manufacturer GĂ€rsnĂ€s presents itself on the German market for the first time. Pieces of furniture by the tradition-steeped manufacture are to be found in almost every public building in Sweden and in many renowned offices. Three questions to the two chief executive officers, Anna and Dag Klockby, about timeless Scandinavian design and the significance of quality in todayâs product world.
The âDreischeibenhausâ in DĂŒsseldorf is considered an international icon of modern architecture. The award-winning modernisation by HPP Architects made the office building fit for the future. We asked Joachim H. Faust, managing partner of HPP, three questions concerning the moderate treatment of existing building structures.
From 25 to 29 October, Vitra presents âWorkâ at the ORGATEC trade fair in Cologne â a dedicated hall exploring the role that work plays in our lives and culture and examining how we furnish the dynamic spaces that enable it. In partnership with other renowned brands, âWorkâ showcases all the elements that will impact the workspaces of today and tomorrow.
Today, hotels are not only places to sleep but places of work. New concepts for business hotels try to meet the requirements resulting from this change: with forward-looking offers and services as well as exceptional design.
Business travellers spend a large part of their time in hotels â and have special demands on hotel equipment and services. Although stylish interiors are important for business hotels, opportunities for working and professional exchange are even more relevant.
The fact that physical activities at the workplace increase performance levels is no new insight. However, offers such as cycling or playing football in the office are rather unusual. Recent projects combine sports and play with day-to-day office routines.
Communicative, young and colourful: these are the main characteristics of latest projects focussing on fun and creativity in daily work routines. With playful designs and exceptional interiors, these working environments provide for a special office experience â while simultaneously increasing the motivation of the staff. Â
