The interior concept for the 22,800 sqm premises by Heylingers d+p is based on the seven seas of the world. Kvadrat textiles are used mainly in tones that match the marine concept, but also in some highlight colours too. Divina, Divina MD, Divina Melange and Tonus feature on lounge chairs, while assorted office furniture is upholstered with Plot and Remix – which is also used on the restaurant chairs. Basel is specified for the meeting and boardrooms.
Every floor has its own sea, which is brought to life with a unique carpet together with a specific range of colours and materials.
“Kvadrat textiles were the basis for our colour and texture scheme. The variation of structure, colour and density they provide made it possible to create an individual identity for every sea,” Lonneke Leijnse, Heyligers d+p
