Neutral shades and natural materials alternate with accents of green – chromatic (chrome) and vegetable - in the new Milanese headquarters of the French-Dutch group AIR France - KLM.
Created by Progetto Design & Build based on the design concept of Progetto CMR, the new space welcomes visitors in a reception area with a particular structure made of wooden slats that wants to recall an idea of lightness and freedom connected to the concept of flight.
The office spaces are distributed in a bright and comfortable open space where operating islands alternate with meeting rooms and closed offices consisting of full-height glass walls.
Office renovation between comfort &biofilic design
The workspace, characterized by the warm tones of beige, white and green, is punctually interspersed with a series of plant elements hanging from the ceiling or arranged between workstations.
This gives the office an intimate and comfortable atmosphere while the wood elements warm the environment, contrasting with the purity of white and green tones to favor a greater sense of well-being and perception.
Great design attention was also paid to the creation of the break area: a cozy multi-functional space for meeting and leisure, is inserted with extreme continuity in the office space thanks to the large glass walls and the reuse of the same materials.
Environmental psychology for KLM Office Design
The concrete design solutions take inspiration from environmental psychology studies and are able to positively influence the ways of working.
From the very beginning there was the willing to create a successful workplace by understanding the needs and behavior of the people using the space.
An important goal has been reached, which went beyond the creation of a
comfortable, beautiful and safe work space, but also capable of positively influencing individual and team work.
