Our philosophy

We believe that people thrive in an optimum working environment. This can be achieved by working by means of a phased method, which guides you in the process from gaining inspiration to final completion. The working process is foremost in creating functional and pleasant working surroundings. Every furnishing project goes through a process. The best way to manage this process is to apply a standardized phased approach. Even if it regards just a small project.



The developments that have effect on the working process are ranged in four categories. Sociological developments show, for instance, an increase of part-time work and a search for a balanced working and private life. The growing use of internet and wireless communication results in technological developments. Organizational developments show a broader acceptance of organizational constructions such as working in project teams. And the increase in costs for a single workstation is an example of economical developments. 


Creating movement

Current working processes change and new working methods originate. The world around us is moving constantly. It is important to keep your employees in motion to keep them up to date with the latest developments. We will support you in this processif needed, to create an ideal working environment where people can work more effectively, more efficiently and with more meaning. The furnishing philosophy Life at Work can be applied in all sorts of different office ventures and also works well for health care facilities and educational institutions.

2) Workshop office innovation

We decide which furnishing concept suits the activities best. A conventional office layout or a working environment that can be used in various ways. And to carry this through on a particular floor or department or even in your entire building.

3) Interior advice and design

The final step is to offer you a detailed proposal for your workstations. Gispen offers a wide variety of workstations that will do justice to all of your employees and will bring forward new dynamics.

This is a continuing process. After a certain amount of time we will assess whether your furnishing is still in line with your working methods, and make alterations if necessary.

We will guide you through the phase of development to let you make the right choices. The moment the phase of realisation commences is when the physical work starts.
