‘When we were looking for a studio, we were looking for someone with a fresh and light approach. A studio that would create a setting with a relaxed atmosphere’, explained Magdalena Borowiec from Profm.The newly opened showroom combines a maximally functional interior, which is to be a tool for work, education and the exchange of ideas, with a space where the quality and unique design of the Scandinavian brand can be seen at frst glance. The well-lit, industrial premises have become a minimalistic space that provides an optimum background for the products on display, where the leading role is played by a spectacular central installation comprising more than a hundred chairs.
The colourful mosaic was created by using about 130 chair backs from the RBM Noor series, which circulate the central part of the ground foor, hiding all the technical rooms behind their walls. This approach has become one of the building’s distinguishing features, which is also visible from outside. The remaining products were arranged using mobile wooden cubes and the open space of the showroom was separated by suspended acoustic panels.
The showroom needed to provide a multifunctional space that would meet the expectations of a large number of its users, including those who work there on a daily basis, visiting guests, or those participating in large events. That is how thecreative table area was created, which is complemented by wooden showcases, displaying a whole range of samples and materials. The next area is theliving area with a large bar made of black lacquered sheet metal. The frst foor was additionally equipped with a subdued and calm work area, which is well lit, with a separate conference room in the form of wooden cubes and places for peaceful work. Acoustic panels run through the whole interior which, combined with a large amount of greenery, create an optimal working environment.
Using only natural materials for the interior,mode:lina™ designers opted for a sustainable and eco-friendly design, which is at the core of Flokk’s philosophy.
