An active office for top workers

A state-owned investment company, TESI spurs Finnish companies to grow by investing in them either directly or through funds. The new office space was designed to support activity-based working by providing private, semi-private and public zones, suitable for various types of tasks. Essential for the new concept was offering solutions for efficient team working. The answer was dedicated team working areas — one of these is a “working cafe”, an ideal spot for employees to gather and share ideas.

Creatively reusing existing furniture was a key consideration from the beginning. In instances where new pieces were essential for more efficient work spaces, focus was on products that supported Finnish work, ideas and design.

The interior tonality of the new office space is harmonious, calm and sustainable. The color palette, which consists of greys and blacks, was intentionally kept limited and neutral. The accent colors of the space vary from terracotta tones to warm yellow and natural ash. A well-being solution is centrally located in the heart of the space: a flourishing vertical green wall that has become the most loved feature of the office. Acoustics and ergonomics were other important well-being factors that were focused on throughout the process.
