The historic, former industrial area of Porta Nuova in Milano has recently transformed into the city’s most futuristic district, redesigning and redefining both its skyline and character.
The Porta Nuova Business District finds its heart in the aptly-named Diamant Tower, a certified Leed Gold which is the new BNP Paribas office building.
“The Diamond” is 28 stories high and has a total surface of 30.000 sqm, with a capacity of 2100 workstations, most of which are operated as shared desks. The interior design project, curated jointly by Architect Paolo Mantero and NEXT Urban Solutions, reflects a contemporary approach to workspace design, with a wide variety of support, relax and free-interaction areas located on each floor.
From these “break rooms”, the occupants can enjoy a fabulous view on the surrounding city.
Particularly interesting is the an innovative BNL Subsidiary, a restaurant/cafe/third place: a hybrid space, ideal for a quick lunch break or informal meetings. It is notably here that we focused our contribution to the project.
As is customary in modern office spaces, our Nd/Uni Loose Lay flooring was used to guarantee comfort and practicality to all users.

Degordian is an independent digital production and marketing agency with 8 years of experience in creating award-winning digital products. The company has recently unveiled the new headquarters in Zagreb: a unique workspace that spreads across 1300 sqm and two floors offering, in their words, “unique design elements and successfully combining togetherness, collaboration, education, entertainment, and comfort”.
The interior design project by architects Tea Ujevic and Irena Vojnovic has the primary task to create an informal working space, and give it a character.
The focus was placed on the floor, as the only element that could be “personalized” to the utmost.
Enter our own Nd/Uni in four different colors, cut into geometric shapes that intersect through the floor plan. By using this tonal segmentation, the uniformity of the horizontal surface was eliminated.
The office itself is designed as an open-space; closed rooms are used for meetings (internal and external), while work desks are clustered into “work units”.
The boundaries between the open and closed space are dynamic, as they’re broken with barrier walls that go out of the expected orthogonal system.
Boundaries are further dematerialized using sloped glass panels that ultimately wipe user’s awareness of what’s inside and what’s out.

In 2016 Gow Hastings Architects was appointed the task of providing two distinct spaces for use by multiple Ryerson University groups, including the Brookfield Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Spaces of collaboration and incubation are important for research-oriented institutes like Ryerson University.
The renovation provides an innovation hub that supports student entrepreneurs and inventors in the early stages of their projects.
The open space planning supports Ryerson’s new pedagogy model of experiential Zone Learning, which prepares students for the 21st century workplace through tangible experience on real world projects.
Our contribution to the project came in the form of our exclusive Kayar flooring, designed by Sottsass Associati, in the not-so-often-seen pink shade K70, paired with the neutral dark grey K103. In a space designed to facilitate the flow of knowledge and discussions. Kayar’s organic feel fit well in the architecture and structure of the offices.

“We have the best people in the best place to work, located in the most beautiful city in the world”. With these words Marco Reas, CFO of Mercedes-Benz Italia, introduced the brand-new Mercedes italian headquarters in via Giulio Vincenzo Bona in the Capital.
The building, designed by Rome-based firm MPPM, makes a strong point of sustainable architecture, getting 40% of its own energy consumption from renewable fonts and smart recovery.
Our contribution to this project was focused on the impressive cafeteria, with a surface of more than 700 sqm entirely covered with our Kayar flooring, designed by Sottsass Associati.
“The new headquarters” explains the CFO of Mercedes-Benz Italia, “embraces the value of teamwork, becoming one of the most innovative buildings not just in our region but in the whole country. We are setting new levels of standard, in terms of energy efficiency and also regarding the quality of the working place”.

SIAE, the Italian Society of Authors and Publishers, recently unveiled the new PR office in its headquarters in Rome. Located in the original 1930s building in the architectural landmark EUR district, the office was designed by Next Urban Solutions and developed by Genera spa and is characterized by a minimalist, fully functional take on a modern workspace setting.
The space is dynamic: along the corridors, meeting rooms and personal offices can be hidden behind folding panels. The no-frills, stark approach to surfaces relies on a fine balance of materials, from belached wood to glass to the dark grey ceilings.
A fundamental contribution comes from our Screed flooring: with Screed, the designers were able to convey a rugged, concrete-like aesthetics while retaining all the exclusive features of a rubber flooring, such as treading noise reduction in the first place.
The result is an elegant, finely-tuned workspace with a strong personality.

The Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC) is one of five Regional Internet Registries providing Internet resource allocations, registration services and coordination activities that support the operation of the Internet in Europe, Middle East and Asia. The RIPE NCC consists of over 15,000 organisations that act as Local Internet Registries to provide Internet services in their own countries.
Local firm Heyligers Design + Projects recently unveiled the new Amsterdam offices, located in the east wing of the Central Station.
A dynamic buzz surrounds the office right from the start, with a cafeteria (managed by a professional barista) welcoming all the workers.
How do you create a home for 38 different nationalities, such as the ones employed at the RIPE NCC? Heyligers Design + Projects organized the workspace in “neighbourhoods” and based the interior design on a journey through the very same continents. The colorful pathways lead the visitors, while our own Nd/Uni rubber flooring provides the ideal surface for work and relax as well in the whole office, for a total surface of 2200 sqm.
The idea was a river. Somehow reminiscent of the Vistula, running just outside the windows. The concept of “flow” is inherent to the Booking.com brand new offices in Warsaw, reminiscent of the idea of travel, of constantly moving.
The worldwide Booking.com team’s ability to provide customer service all around the clock means their offices are cozy, informal, free – places where their dedicated staff can work long hours with a sense of levity, enjoying breaks, chats, rest.
In the Warsaw offices, our Kayar rubber flooring conceptually provides “the banks of the river”, laying side by side with Shaw Contract Group’s blue carpets.
Thanks to the smart choices in color schemes and design items, the result is certainly inspiring. A modern office space with a feeling, “outside of generally adopted standards” as architect Bogdan Kulczyński says: “The integration of free working stations and relaxing spaces is meant to make all employees part of a big family”.
The historic, formerly industrial area of Porta Nuova in Milano has recently transformed into the city’s most futuristic district, redesigning and redefining both its skyline and character.
The Porta Nuova Business District finds its heart in the aptly-named Diamant Tower, a certified Leed Gold project which also defines the aesthetics of the surrounding buildings, commonly named Diamantini.
In the Diamantino currently hosting BNP Paribas offices, the amenities area is a prominent feature: designed by Park Associati, it is a 700 sqm space entirely covered by our Uni Loose Lay flooring in the U55 color.
The area, called Green Hub, has a recreational purpose: lounge area, kitchen, reading room, space for meetings and conventions and so on. Custom-made furnishings, libraries and planters on wheels define small small study areas and lounges. There are wired work desks and video walls for meetings. The modules on wheels can be moved quickly, and adapted to different space configurations, depending on the requirements.
Green and natural wood provide the only real colors in the space, with a neutral palette that comprises all furniture items as well as our floor as well. The perfect choice for an area meant for relaxing and informal meeting, in line with today’s workspace design.
Established in 1991, Lenne is a designer and manufacturer of kidswear based in Tallin.
Producing more than 350 models every year, the company is specialized in technical outwear designed for rough nordic climates.
The new company headquarters are housed in a former factory building, for which we provided more than 450 sqm of our Zeus flooring in the Z640 color.
The empty shell of the industrial facility is brimming with creativity thanks to a faceted, multi-level landscape “where the movement is fascinating” say the architects at Kamp studio.
Mostly noticeable, among designer armchairs scattered throughout the space, are the birch trees that form a sort of promenade across the different workspaces.
