‘Innovative furnishing for Innovation Centre'

FrieslandCampina

Every day FrieslandCampina provides natural dairy products to millions of people around the world. The new Innovation Centre is where all their expertise in research and development comes together. Gispen took care of the entire furnishing.

To taste, smell and feel

FrieslandCampina’s employees have various laboratories, a pilot plant (techno hall) and 7,100 m² of office space at their disposal. The new building houses the so-called Experience Centre including an innovation kitchen and a test bakery, where visitors from all around the world can visit and taste, smell and feel products in an inspiring environment. Gispen supplied all of the furniture components, designed by Fokkema Architects.

 

Ideal solutions were sought after at all levels: from working processes up to and including tabletop finishes. Extensive consultation with users has led to innovative solutions that optimally support the processes. The glass walls installed at the open office areas serve as transparent partitions between the manager’s- and consultation areas. The custom-made cabinets divide the room visually. The cabinets have been fitted with the same oak tops as the IC desks.  

 

Custom all the way

We shared expertise on working processes up to and including tabletop finishes. Extensive consultation with users has led to innovative solutions that optimally support the activities. Providing a look and feel that suits the corporate identity of FrieslandCampina was our starting point – for the laboratories as well. The ergonomic stools and chairs match the visuals on the walls in colour. They are easy to adjust in height via the gas struts.

Many different seats, plenty to choose from

The Technohal can be seen directly from the restaurant on the first floor, inspiring both employees and visitors. They are literally given a look behind the scenes of FrieslandCampina. There is a whole array of different seats to choose from, you can simply choose a spot that matches the purpose of your visit, whether a lunch or informal discussion.

 

Tailored cable management

One of the reasons why FrieslandCampina chose Gispen is because of its tailored cable management. Each standard workstation has ICT and a power outlet integrated into the tabletop. We developed a stealthy panel to cover up the cable ducts.
