The perfect interior design demands time, focus & expertise

The perfect interior design demands time, focus & expertise

Phase of development

The decision to adopt a new interior design is not an easy one to make, many different factors are in play. Facility requirements, occupational health and safety standards and your working process affect your final decision. We will guide you in making these choices in the creation phase. A number of services are offered to you including working process scan, workshop office innovation and of course an interior advice and design.

Our philosophy: Life At Work


We believe that people thrive in an optimum working environment. Whether this is their working-, educational-, healthcare- or living environment, this notion applies to all. We create those optimum environments by following a phased working method, guiding you in the process from gaining inspiration to final completion. Your working process, means of learning or caring and living requirements are fundamental to achieving the final result: a pleasant and functional environment. Read the full story here. 

Evidence based inrichten

Hoe je woont, leeft, werkt… Omgevingen hebben effect op mensen. Daar zijn door de jaren heen allerlei onderzoeken naar gedaan. Minder ziekteverzuim op kantoor? Gelukkigere werknemers? Kies voor ‘evidence based’ inrichten. Daarbij maak je gebruik van feiten die op onderzoek zijn gebaseerd. Carola van de Bilt, interieurarchitect, vertelt er meer over.


De omgevingspsychologie is een interessante tak van sport – ook voor Gispen en onze eigen interieurarchitecten en -ontwerpers. Wat betekent het precies? En hoe passen wij inzichten uit de omgevingspsychologie toe binnen onze projecten? Het interview met interieurarchitect Nelleke Lagerwerf leest u hier.

The industrial designer’s thoughts

For many years now there’s nothing I have enjoyed more than to design or industrial production. Designing is in fact a form of consulting, but done visually. I design my products together with the client; that is the secret behind a successful industrial & functional product. Perfectly in line with the client’s wishes.

Interior advice and design

We are here to provide you with the necessary advice on interior design and create well thought-out designs. Considering all of your ergonomic, visual, facility and budgetary expectations. You will be presented with a detailed proposal, including all specifications and quotes. We always start with an initial sketch plan. The preliminary design follows at a later stage, before the final design is completed. During every stage of the design process, you will be presented with images, drawings, sample materials and specifications. This method will allow you and your colleagues to get an idea of what your future interior design will look like.


U staat voor de uitdaging om een of meer ruimtes of zelfs een compleet pand opnieuw in te richten. Vaak is er al een harde datum bekend waarop alles gebruiksklaar moet zijn. Graag binnen de tijd en binnen budget en kwaliteitsverwachtingen. Wilt u kunnen vertrouwen op een goede oplevering en heeft u behoefte aan ondersteuning? Iemand die uw inrichtingstraject van begin tot eind plant en coördineert – van de verbouwing van de ruimte(s) tot en met de inhuizing van meubilair, inclusief zaken als lichtkwaliteit en kabelmanagement? Dan staan onze projectmanagers voor u klaar. Meer lezen over Projectmanagement.

Projectinrichting & kleurentrends

Wat zijn dé kleuren van dit moment? Zijn er trends, en hoe gaan we daar eigenlijk mee om binnen de projectinrichting? Vragen waarop onze interieurarchitect Carola van de Bilt het antwoord heeft. Een kleurrijk kijkje achter de schermen met Carola.

The graphic designer’s thoughts

I spend time discussing interior design with external clients and with colleagues in-house. Few words often suffice to understand each other. During the phase of development, a design literally takes form in my hands. However, nothing can match the moment of presenting a proposal to a client.

Working process scan & office innovation

The working process scan is a good starting point for a new interior design. The scan will provide insight into your organisation and working processes. We will analyse all factors which are of significance to your work, both internal and external.


The workshop office innovation creates a support base for innovation. You can ask your employees to come up with ideas for the new interior design by means of interactive meetings. We will discuss working methods, desired changes and the necessary steps to achieve these goals. The workshop’s goal is to come to a shared understanding of the role of the new accommodation, as well as the effect it has on the organisation.

Workshop office innovation

The world around us is constantly changing, working processes and new ways of working are formed. Gispen arranges special workshops fororganisations that opt for The New Way of Working. These workshops are tailored to your organisation because we are convinced of the fact that every organisation and its implementation of The New Way of Working is unique. If desired, we will guide your organisation through the entire process. Mapping out your current working processes and considering the possibilities, advantages and possible disadvantages of The New Way of Working. 

How will it affect your organisation, employees and management? And what about your interior furnishing and your other facilities, which must be up to the task of supporting The New Way of Working. The essence of The New Way of Working is working time- and place independently. In practice, however, it is much more than that. The philosophy ‘Life at Work’ is what determines Gispen’s working method, a comprehensive vision of interior design aimed at creating the best possible, future-proof office furnishing and organisation. Gispen’s workshops aim to be a supporting factor in a sometimes radical process of change.


Gispen has held workshops at RDW Groningen, the Belastingdienst (Dutch tax authorities), Catharina hospital, Deventer hospital, Dutch Public Prosecution Service, Dutch Chamber of Commerce, Getronics and the municipality of Amsterdam.

The interior designer’s thoughts

A number of years ago I began to specialise in Change Management. I have learned that much can be gained in this field of expertise. Some employees struggle with change. We strive to help them settle again, ensuring they also share the renewed vision.
