A brand new flavour

For Givaudan’s office relocation, a flavour and fragrance manufacturer, the challenge was crafting a refined, luxurious space with a first-of-its-kind test kitchen. The design harmonizes light and dark woods, creating an elegant, modern office that embodies natural sophistication and a serene, earth-toned colour palette.

The brief

We were commissioned by Givaudan, a manufacturer of flavours and fragrances, as a full-line partner to take a holistic approach to office relocation. The brief included developing a comprehensive project budget for the move, including a new interior design concept in accordance with Givaudan’s brand and operations.

The challenge

The biggest challenge in this project was the design and installation of a test kitchen in the brand new building without any existing technical adaptation for such an installation. The entirety needed to be designed in accordance with the customer’s new brand and to serve as a toned-down, elegant and luxurious environment.

The results

The result of our efforts on behalf of Givaudan is an elegant and modern office where very light and dark woods are juxtaposed. The furniture from Fritz Hansen and Montana enhances the luxurious feel, offering a natural softness and a restful colour scheme.

The colour palette containing a lot of earth and natural tones, together with carpeting from Bolon and Ege, contributes to a luxurious and cosy office with an open floor plan. By employing curtains, we have created screened-off spaces and enhanced the acoustics.
