Kvadrat: Well-being by design

Inside the building of Danfoss’ offices in Hamburg, the Danish company Kvadrat’s interior design products contribute to a healthier and more productive work environment. Well-being is a cornerstone of the design philosophy behind both the office interior and the range of panels, blinds, and upholstery by Kvadrat.

Well-being by design

At Danfoss’s offices by the harbour in Hamburg, the company’s in-house architects and HOLMRIS B8 have created an interior design using Soft Cells panels by Kvadrat Acoustics, Luminous Textile panels, and Roller Blinds. In addition, a variety of Kvadrat upholstery textiles are used throughout the interior to create well-being in the office spaces.

Mindful that good acoustics can improve task motivation by over 60% and concentration on demanding tasks by 50% - all while reducing stress levels by 20% - the architects utilised the Soft Cells acoustic panels in the offices. These make speech easier to understand, and they facilitate collaboration.

The Kvadrat Shade roller blinds at the premises feature metallised textiles that integrate a nano-layer of aluminium. By enabling the users to control sunlight, they support thermal comfort. The roller blinds also deliver visual comfort by managing glare and providing access to views and natural light.

Adding to the wellbeing-focused concept at the Danfoss offices, Kvadrat upholstery textiles in varied colours create aesthetic harmony with the Kvadrat textiles on the Soft Cells panels and the Kvadrat Shade roller blinds.
