The airline has revamped its corporate image based on two concepts: Innovation and sustainability. Architecture studio TBG chose the mineral compact Krion® by PORCELANOSA Group for the design of the building's furnishings and meeting rooms, the perfect material to highlight these two objectives.
"We pinned down the final draft of the project in our initial sessions. For the team, it was important that we preserve the solid legacy of the organisation as it moves forward into the future. We needed to design a dynamic space that would reflect the brand and its diversity, whilst instilling a sense of pride in people working in and visiting the office", explain TPG's architects.
Incorporating Krion® Snow White 1100 EAST K-Life into the workspaces and rest areas has modernised the facilities, with its healthy, sustainable design. In the offices and meeting rooms - spanning three floors of the building - open-plan spaces and futuristic decor dominate, and the pure white K-Life, natural light and Nordic style furnishings reinforce the concept of an open and collaborative office.
The layout is linked to the company's corporate values with wellbeing, order and safety as key priorities.

'The team wanted to create a design with aviation inspired accents, like the conference room signage incorporating global airport codes in a fresh, modern setting", say the TPG representatives.
