Entering our space
Our visitors' first experience of the headquarters is an inviting upholstery of seats by the fireplace, the soft blue curtains of a neighbouring room, and a stunning view into the garden. On the ground floor, curtains, rugs, and upholstery pick up green tones from the surrounding landscape. On the first floor, blue accents, echoing the sky, predominate. Wooden vitrines exhibit inspirational materials relating to the company's latest projects, and curtains act as soft doorways to the adjacent meeting rooms.
Art and Design
Kvadrat is deeply rooted in Scandinavian design. Our headquarters space honours this historic relationship by using some iconic elements throughout the premises, such as lavish Dinesen oak floors or furniture by Nanna Ditzel, Verner Panton, and Hvidt & Mølgaard among others.
Moreover, visitors will experience a physical testimony of our longstanding commitment and passion for contemporary art. Artworks from the corporate collections are disseminated in and around our spaces, alongside site-specific commissions by outstanding international and Danish artists – including works by Christo & Jean Claude, Asger Jorn, Shilpa Gupta and Anri Sala.
Always the social heart of the site, the communal space of the existing canteen was extended into a new library area. The space features a long table that can be curtained off for dining or meetings, soft seating areas, and quiet workspaces that look out onto the landscape through floor to ceiling windows.
The two storeys of the south wing of the headquarters house feature an open plan studio for design development and associated departments. Besides a product library and curtained video conference rooms, the south wing offers meeting rooms with dramatic windows directly onto the warehouse, creating a visual link between the design team and the finished product.
Above all, SevilPeach made textile the hero of the site. High curtains are used as flexible boundaries for meeting rooms, as temporary dividers or to soften large open spaces. Loose families of colours and textures delineate five zones within the site – Welcome, Management, Product, Social Space and Studio – all linked by a street-like corridor running through the building. A unifying family of light fittings by Viabizzuno is used throughout.
