Period office with a modern twist
In the historic heart of Malmö, a venture capital firm transforms a turn-of-the-century apartment into a workspace that artfully balances professionalism with warmth. Overcoming acoustic challenges with textiles, this 150-square-metre space blends functionality with elegance, creating a dynamic area that mirrors the company’s ethos.
To remedy the room’s acoustic issues, we worked with a lot of textiles – curtains, upholstered furniture and accessories. We also solved the company’s desire to have both workspaces and social areas in the same area by creating rooms within the room through clever placement of furnishings, including a large sofa from Gubi together with armchairs and tables from Menu.
To create additional functionality, we used acoustic sofas from Muuto. The large conference room has a muted and luxurious tone and is crowned by a ceiling lamp from Gubi. We furnished the space with a lot of textile furniture from Menu and Gubi, and in front of the high windows, we hung curtains from Astrid.
The workspaces consist of desks from SA furniture and work chairs from Vitra. The storage solutions come from Montana, and these were also used as sideboards and continuous storage, as well as hall furniture.
