How to optimise working environments: Dynamic, communicative collaboration is central at Gore and the associates culture provides a good foundation for adopting new modes of office work. Back in 2019 Vitra was commissioned to team up with users to develop a future workplace in an open empty space, in order to enhance this special networking culture and its work structures and processes and implement them in new more flexible spatial concepts.
“Vitra’s Club Office: using our own spaces as a testing ground for our Research & Design team, Vitra’s Consulting & Planning team has built the first Club Office at our head office in Birsfelden, near Basel, Switzerland. People do not come to the office today for individual activities requiring concentration – they come because they have a desire to feel part of a larger whole, because they want to meet their colleagues, and because they seek new knowledge and experiences.”
As a service provider for public and private institutions, the client is an international leader in this sector with over 9000 employees. When planning a new work environment at the company headquarters, a key aim was to translate the open and informal corporate culture into office structures that promote communication.
The Hilti Group provides leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. The headquarters is being modernised step by step, with the newest office building providing a contemporary work environment for around 200 employees.
The hotel has embraced an innovative hybrid concept: guests should feel comfortable and relaxed in timelessly furnished rooms, while also able to enjoy diverse events, micro-scale fairs, pop-up interventions and exhibitions on the premises.
“The independent aid organisation Plan International has been working to secure the opportunities and rights of children worldwide for 80 years. An ambitious concept for the new office building was developed together with the architects and the Interior Design Service team at Vitra.”
Security first, the 24 hours training center in Zurich Switzerland: Every year, over 12,000 employees from various airlines complete their apprenticeships, further vocational advancement or professional training as pilots or flight attendants in the new 11,000-sqm building with offices and training facilities.
A new spirit of togetherness was to be created, with an open work environment whose overall design is a visible expression of the corporate culture. Vitra was commissioned to design a concept for this Electrostar project.
