Projekt: Work OUT, Växjö, Sweden
Partner: Norrportens Fastighetsbolag
Architect: Gestalt Arkitektur, arkitekt Christian Kahlefeldt
In collaboration with Norrporten, Gestalt Arkitektur and architect Christian Kahlefeld, Nola helped shape the outdoor office ‘Work OUT’ project. The project was initiated by Norrporten, who invited Nola to select outdoor furniture that would enhance the environment today while enabling it to remain stylish over time. Norrporten are a property company located in the southern Swedish city of Växjö, where the project was held. Work OUT was located in a new business park development situated on a former military base. The surrounding area is tranquil and green, creating a uniquely relaxing environment for conferences, meetings and other business activities.
Work OUT took an ergonomic approach to office work. The project included seating options that enabled office workers to sit, stand or recline as they worked individually or participated in meetings. Energy produced by solar panels and an efficient outdoor WiFi network boosted the functionality of the office environment.
The conference room was equipped with furniture from Nola’s Parco series, designed by Broberg & Ridderstråle, including a meeting table, high chairs and ergonomically-designed standing tables crafted from Sioo-treated oak. Another outdoor room was furnished with benches, swivel armchairs and tables from Nola’s Korg furniture group. The lounge area featured furniture designed by Thomas Bernstrand, such as Kajen Hammock rocking chairs in bright yellow and a Four Seasons sun parasol. The seating was complemented by a Sun table designed by Monika Förster. Just as some of the Kajen furniture was customised to suit the space, a special edition version of Torbjörn Andersson’s Origami bench was created for the project.
