A place to live, a place to work

A place to live, a place to work

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.

How does that actually work?

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 the Creation phase. A number of services are offered to you including:

2) Workshop office innovation
