About the project
Today’s office is emerging from a period of transition. The pandemic has given rise to a functional realignment of the office. What role will workspaces play in the future? And how can work processes be optimized? Siemens AG Austria is one of the companies finding answers to these questions. Since mid-2020, it has been a pioneer of transformation processes in work environments. At the WorkInn of its Siemens City branch in Vienna, it has established an innovative epicenter of productive and creative work processes. This leading-edge office design concept also rests on the customized carpet tiles of the premium supplier OBJECT CARPET.
As part of the Siemens City in Vienna, the WorkInn is the product of a collaboration between the business consultancy M.O.O.CON, the interior design firm SCHÖNSTIL and Siemens Real Estate (SRE). The concept of the co-working space revolves around the principle of activity-based working. A wide range of different work options are customized for individual preferences. The employees have been actively integrated in the process of dividing the workspaces into three zones: during a two-week phase, the work processes were successively analyzed and they made strategic decisions on how the environment can be efficiently adapted to their needs and requirements. The main “Collaborate” zone as well as the “Focus” and “Retreat” areas emerged from the resulting profiles. The “Collaborate” zone is the active core of the office concept – where the design turns in-person or virtual meetings and gatherings into an extraordinary experience.
To maximize the functional added value of the indoor spaces, the interior designer Yvonne Meindl-Cavar selected carpet styles from OBJECT CARPET. The individuality of the work zones is reflected in the floor design with carpet tiles from the FORUM FOR GREAT IDEAS collection. This singularity is expressed not only by the custom format of the floor covering but also by its appearance: The diversity of designs, color shades and styles enables a flexible coordination with different needs and requirements – for maximum creative leeway. The carpet tiles FORUM VELOURS MILEY 1003 and FORUM VELOURS JANE 0601 harmoniously complement the nature theme of the interior design.
In its work on the project, the interior design firm SCHÖNSTIL chose appealing natural elements and leaf motifs to decorate the spaces. The color scheme of the premises is created by fusing natural and bright tones, which lends a fresh touch to the overall look.
