A MODULAR FURNITURE SYSTEM
TRANSFORMING NEW AND EXISTING OFFICES
The WorkLab uses a furniture system that transforms both the new and existing Roche office spaces into flexible and dynamic work environments. Agency is given to the people working in the offices, by providing them with a series of flexible modules that can be moved and adapted according to needs and preferences. The furniture catalogue is based on six forms, which can be turned into a series eighteen furniture pieces.
INTRODUCING SMART MATERIAL CHOICES
Renewable and recycled materials are prerequisites for a circular society. Choosing materials is about making responsible decisions*. Technology and creativity are enabling new ways of upcycling waste and turning it into new and strong materials. Research done around the world has shown the potential of end of life products and materials, like textile (wool, cotton), plastics, wood and cardboard. The WorkLab uses a material led process, adjusting the form and design to the building qualities of these recycled materials, of which the Roche office furniture is made.
