The main focus of the 540 square-meter Oticon office design, located on the 5th floor of the Warsaw-based Q22 office building, was creating a pleasant and functional arrangement with the particular attention paid to employees’ needs and comfort.
The Oticon company is a part of a Demant group, offering the hearing improving solutions. Due to the specific nature of the office’s business, the main motive is sound – we can find here proper interior acoustic solutions as well as a graphical symbols and accents with direct reference to the company’s motive.
The space was designed in the modern Scandinavian style – with an emphasis on simplicity, minimalism and well thought-out functionality. Interiors are the combination of whites, soft felt, natural wood, vivid greens and colors referring to the natural values of the northern countries. Deliberate materials combinations create a light and spacious office, positively influencing the well-being and efficiency of the 47 employees.
The key aspect was to adapt the space to the needs of particular departments, hence implementing optimal spacial solutions with consideration of ergonomics and large storage space – which was very important for the investor. It turned out that the best solution was the open space arrangement. From the spacious reception with prevailing wood on both the ceiling, walls and the reception desk, we come to the working space, where we can find workstations that ensure maximal comfort and efficiency. Due to their acoustics, the conference rooms are the perfect meeting spaces, whereas the harmonious colours in the kitchen take us to the peaceful and quiet shores of Iceland.
The elegance and simplicity of the interiors are enhanced by the use of both high quality lighting and the furniture, properly selected by their visual, ergonomic and quality features.
