Office furniture manufacturer Vitra is launching its first “Club Office” at its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland this month.
Located in the company’s head office, Club Office was created for Vitra’s research and development team in order to offer workers the ideal post-pandemic workplace.
“Those who choose to go to the office today and in the future do so consciously – to meet colleagues and experience a sense of belonging and appreciation,” said Nora Fehlbaum, CEO of Vitra. “The common mission and organisational purpose should be perceptible. Consequently, it must be more than just a place of work. Today, an office needs to provide added value. If an office has no character and colleagues there hide from one another, it’s better to spare the commute and stay at home.”
The Club’s members will have access to its three different zones: the public section, a semi-public area and the private zone.
The public area will offer a space for spontaneous meetings, informal collaboration and mutual learning. The semi-public section will be used for formal collaboration, allowing members to reserve the space for project work. The private zone will feature workstations that are made for individual, focused work.
