The idea of home became central to our design approach for Samsen Domus. Built-in and open bookshelves provide ample space for personal items and magazines and ensure the room is cosy and intimate whether its occupants are busy thinking or relaxing. The Domus has the feeling of a classic apartment — complete with a combined library and living room, a kitchen, and a large workspace where two big tables were custom-made to offer a welcome alternative to the individual desks you normally find in corporate settings. An enlivened colour palette including an accent of poppy orange is designed to support people’s ability to stay alert and focused. Under construction. Under construction. Under construction.
We have once again collaborated with Stockholm-based consultancy Samsen. For their second location, the brief was to create a modern space for effective working in the post-pandemic world. Honouring Samsen’s commitment to designing work around what matters to their employees, we helped them establish an environment that would lure people back to the workplace to focus, share ideas and connect with colleagues. Even those who spend many hours a day sitting in front of a computer should enjoy a positive experience.
The Domus is inspired by the idea of home and offers a combined library and living room, a kitchen, and a large workspace where two big tables were custom-made to offer a welcome alternative to standard desks. In this thoughtful interior, the functionality of a typical office is fused with the relaxed and homely feel of an old-fashioned apartment.
