Cron Executive Chair
Furniture can become a brand identity, especially if it is related to the company's philosophy and its graphic identity. This was the case for the CAPEXUS project that, with Actiu furniture, has been enhancing the Siemens technology group in the Czech Republic for years.
Always attending to the company's organizational needs, CAPEXUS has equipped different Siemens work environments in recent times using Actiu furniture. A project and pieces of furniture that have managed to provide a warm and stimulating aesthetic capable of inspiring the creativity and talent of team members.
And it has been achieved using product such as Cron chairs and Longo tables for the operational positions and the meeting rooms, as well as Wing chairs and Tabula tables for the eating areas and social spaces.
In the case of the most recent collaboration, in the Siemens offices in Pilsen in the west of the Bohemian region, the interior refurbishment project and its commitment to glass and light has allowed to give prominence to spectacular views, in an environment in which the customized colours of furniture and carpets stand out against the light shades of walls and ceilings.
These offices house 83 operational positions spread over two floors connected by a sinuous wooden staircase. The Cron chairs were manufactured according to the chromatic specifications of this project, which equipped its meeting rooms, in addition, with Longo tables. Capexus has similarly rearranged the reception area and the laboratories where Siemens’ engineers work.
The company's corporate colours on the furniture are combined in the space with chromatic interplay based on the vinyl on the walls.
In line with Siemens brightness, colour and freshness requirements, dynamic and playful spaces have been formed for relaxing and socializing. Areas that are used as a meeting point when eating, and where Wing chairs and Tabula tables have been chosen and, even, a few ping pong tables, which provide its team with a break from day-to-day work with moments of fun.
Previously, Actiu also collaborated in the refurbishment of the Siemens 1,000 square metre office in the West City B2 building in Prague, converted into a unique, bright, modern, spacious and unusual environment with different spaces to work, to encourage relaxation and to host informal meetings.
With a change in the tone of the furniture - from basic colours to bright and saturated green, blue and yellow tones - the facilities breathe freshness and youth, two key features to attract the talent of the younger generations working in this multinational technology company.
This Development Centre required, according to Siemens requirements, qualities that motivate its users, mainly engineers, and their ability to bring their technological innovations to life, based on a multifunctional work environment.
Cron chairs and Longo tables were, once again, the solution chosen for the meeting rooms. This comprehensive program also extends its versatility to the reception room of these offices, which it adds design and comfort to.
These offices also have a differentiated space with different areas for the coffee break and lunch time, under the name of Ingenuity Coffee, which promotes relaxation and the exchange of ideas based on an interior design that aims to stimulate the creativity of users.
Wing chairs and Tabula tables were also chosen as a common denominator, both visual and functional, due to their technical and aesthetic qualities and for the comfort that it brings to the common use areas of these offices, which also allow organizing large meetings and even hosting celebratory events.
The result is a multidisciplinary space which allows combining concentrated and creative work that adjusts to the diverse needs of this company, favouring both operability and social interaction between team members.
