Harmonising individual requirements with “shop window” effect

Concept

Lista Office LO has given the offices at its own Arnegg site a complete makeover. Just as they would for any customer project, the specialist office outfitters came up with a design optimised to the needs of the people using the space. However, the refurbished premises also serve as a large showroom where visitors and customers can see the transformed space in action.


The concept

Before the refurbishments, the Arnegg site was home to IT and Order handling. After the office refit, the CFO, HR, Controlling and Accounting departments also moved in. Lista Office LO treated the project like any customer project, reimagining the office space in line with user needs. However, here on its own premises it went one step further, creating a showcase of functional variety in the furnishings, designs and colour schemes. The result highlights the wealth of possibilities available from Lista Office LO and its trading partners. The newly refurbished Arnegg offices now represent a showroom for the company. “The delicate balancing act between spaces where people can work, and this showroom functionality, was the biggest challenge for this project,” says Markus Basler, responsible for Project Development & Innovation at Lista Office LO.

Each team has its own clearly delineated zone with quiet oases created using room-in-room elements. There are also three meeting rooms designed for four to ten people. Mobile furniture transforms the large assembly room into a project work zone – and a space that is simultaneously perfect for customer presentations. The coffee area boasts a friendly colour scheme and a variety of seating options that make the space inviting for breaks, relaxing, discussions or work. This welcoming space, along with the newly open-plan offices, fosters casual encounters. Markus Basler is delighted by the results: “I value the personal contact with the different departments – I can ask questions or raise issues directly”. Circular windows in the coffee area offer a direct view into the assembly workshop where Lista Office LO is busy manufacturing new office furniture for its customers.

“We used as many custom solutions as possible when selecting the tabletops and colour schemes for the counter furniture,” says Markus Basler. “I believe it’s part of our added value at Lista Office LO that we offer such a wide range of design options and can put together a highly individual scheme like this.” Visitors and customers can take a tour through the offices and judge the results for themselves. For Lista Office LO’s own staff, the new working environment is a living test environment. Their feedback helps improve how Lista Office LO advises its customers.
