Tengbom Arkitekter – Stoccolma, Svezia

Office surfacing with special rubber flooring Uni LL.

“Instead of reminiscing of past times, a modern architect should adopt a wider stance – investigating the needs of society now and in the future”. Ivar Tengbom

Founded in 1906 by Ivar, Tengbom is one of the oldest architectural firms in the industry and yet in 2016 was included in the four most innovative practices in the world.

The studio has 10 offices in Northern Europe and a total of 570 employees. In a very recent renovation of their Stockholm headquarters, the firm chose our own Loose Lay flooring, Nd/Uni LL in the U99 color, covering a total of 3250 sqm.

The workplace is exciting, for lack of a better word. With views over Stockholm bay and an attention to everyone’s thoughts. Quotes the firm: “We have 570 co-workers and equally as many thoughts as to what architecture should be”.

“It is important to us that the living environment we design is allowed to evoke emotions and debate. We look to contribute to this through our series of talks #TengbomTalks – a platform for public, local and international offices to examine the issues that we discuss across our offices”.
