Joyful and inspiring offices for a multinational.

A multinational that gave a free hand to e45 creative and professional designers who, relying on a twenty-year experience, hand-picked reliable partners -the dealer Cardex and some of the best suppliers company like Dieffebi, Interface, Armstrong, Arper, a.s.o.- to carry out a functional workplace, really amazing, bright and versatile.

Pitney Bowes is a US multinational that employs 15.000 people in the world and works in supplies and delivery services. The Italian branch has just decided to move its office, in order to match the new needs resulting from its development.
The design of the new office was entrusted to e45 (Bruno De Rivo e Pietro Morandi), supported by Cardex for furniture and settings.
The headquarters include administrative offices, a demo room for presentation to the clients, the online assistance service for management softwares and a workshop.
The rooms mirrors the “technical” trait of the company, yet they are bright and attractive at the same time.

Respectful of ergonomics and environmental comfort – especially as lighting and acoustics are concerned – they  follow the contemporary dictates of an active, lively workplace pleasant to live in.

The design is a balanced mix of open plan and offices and closed rooms, individual and collective areas: open space offices with “writeable walls” are furnished with bench desks and useful storages (Primo System by Dieffebi); meetings rooms in several sizes, huddle rooms for video conferences, and also a kitchenette are closed by transparent and sound insulating glass partition walls by Gecopar facing on the open plan offices.

As regards look and finishing touches, the company gave carte blanche to the designers.
Moderately used corporate colours for the visible technical equipment, the wall graphics in the reception area and ornamental details that make these offices exceptionally fascinating: corporate colours in the round sound-absorbing panels (Canopy by Armstrong) “twined” with the round hanging lamps; blue thick, domestic-looking curtains and the irregular chromatic pattern of the flooring by Interface.
