The main Italian branch of the multinational Cisco, on the outskirts of Milan: an interior design project that clearly defines an international brand image and the corporate values of the company, the first of which is “the human network” slogan. A result achieved by creating environments that encourage interaction and communication among people with an articulation of spaces inspired by the design of a computer motherboard. Many areas devoted to socialising, including cafes, lounge areas and large media room: locations subject to high traffic that Progetto CRM, responsible for the operation, has chosen to characterise with the loose-lay flooring Kayar: Artigo rubber is a material capable of expressing a high degree of technological sophistication, in the interpretation of absolute originality provided by Sottsass Associati.
The reference point in the Netherlands for those looking for work and those offering it. UWV is a non-profit governmental organisation dedicated to finding employment, recruitment and recognition of work permits for immigrants. A national network with 130 offices and a total of more than 4500 work consultants, translates into an overall interior design project which aims to combine the consistency of the corporate image with very different architectural situations. Artigo collaborated with Aswa Architecten in the creation of six offices, each of which has been a project with unique characteristics. A wide range of products and colour variations have been used: particularly interesting is the outfitting of the offices in Breda, where the combination of five colour variations of Multifloor / ND-UNI has created a pattern of great visual impact.
Cuando una empresa con más de cuarenta años de experiencia en el diseño gráfico decide renovar sus ambientes, dedica seguramente mucha atención a la armonía cromática y volumétrica del proyecto arquitectónico que debe representarla. La Artigiana, fundada en Alba en 1971 como laboratorio para la producción de pequeños trabajos artesanales realizados con máquinas tipográficas, con el transcurso de los años se ha convertido en una empresa vanguardista en las artes gráficas, capaz de dar un servicio completo a las empresas y al territorio en la producción de material editorial y publicitario. El edifico industrial que contiene la tecnología de impresión, hoy se muestra como una serie de losas yuxtapuestas de prefabricado de hormigón armado. La expresión arquitectónica del nuevo volumen quiere representar el nivel tecnológico alcanzado con la moderna técnica de impresión: una envoltura de “cáscara” muy similar a una papiroflexia, abarcando los tres niveles habitables. Las superficies vítreas están remarcadas por volúmenes estratificados de seguridad con efecto de gran transparencia, con carácter de baja emisión para favorecer el ahorro energético. Se han escogido colores fuertes para las superficies interiores, que remarcan un efecto de papiroflexia en los espacios.

Office surfacing with rubber flooring Multifloor Nd-Uni.
A multinational construction company, specialised in glass and steel constructions, which boasts among its references the dome of the Reichstag in Berlin: in relation to the new headquarters in Vienna, Waagner-Biro wanted to fully exploit the distinguishing characteristics of the materials with which the company is identified. The project, directed by Driendl Architects, is characterised by a dynamic conception of the interior spaces, with the possibility of converting open-plan environments in individual offices, as needed. Extensive use of double glazing has created an innovative self-regulating heating system, based on air flows channelled and controlled by sensors. The double glazing ensures optimum sound insulation, a quality to which contributes the Artigo 3 mm thick flooring, able to ensure the maximum impact noise reduction.

Leaseplan is a leading operator in Europe and a major operator worldwide in the long-term rental and management of company fleets. Present throughout Italy, managing a fleet of over 90,000 vehicles with approximately 500 employees. The Rome premises, designed by Progetto CMR, is defined by a dynamic use of space, with areas flexible to the needs of professionals and the use of graphics as an element of characterisation, with large vertical inscriptions identifying the areas. Sliding glass partitions make the light a constant presence, amplified by the use of white in the architectural structure combined to orange, the main colour of the corporate identity. In studied contrast with these colour the black loose-lay flooring Kayar is matched, a proposal that takes full advantage of the coir for an overall image of great originality.
