Impraise is a young tech company and dedicated to empowering Human Resources Management. They’ve built The People Enablement Platform, where employees can create a culture of feedback and knowledge sharing within their organisation. They approached us with a challenging request: “We are moving into our new offices within five months, and we would like you to design these spaces with a warm, natural atmosphere. Specific requirements? No. Take us with you in your design process and surprise us”. From the first sketches till the styling, this challenge can best be described as a great collaboration between all involved parties.

We designed a fresh and surprising space, almost plug & play, using ready-made objects and natural material like plywood which is a daring choice. The floor was painted with industrial coating and punctuated by colourful carpets. Furnify was involved from the beginning of the process, with their experience to source for second life furniture and sustainable fabrics. Their additions give the space an authentic feeling. By choosing these lively colours and simple shapes, we reflect the company’s vision of people and growth. Another added value is the lounge entrance with hybrid features: it is a reception room for visitors, but it can easily be transformed to a presentation spot for their team meetings. The wheels underneath tables and sitting blocks give the employees the flexibility they need.
