Arper has equipped a nine-storey building with office furniture in the old town of Milan.

On the heels of the conversion of an historical building at the heart of Milan by DEGW Architects into office premises, the audit company Ernst&Young debated what form of workplace organization would be best for the nine stories. On the basis of staff interviews they analyzed the internal workflow and then set about optimizing the office settings accordingly. The result: the 18,000-plus square meters are configured primarily as free working spaces. There are additional, small and flexible islands with upholstered furniture behind screening that are ideal for meetings or tasks requiring maximum concentration.

The color range for the Catifa 46 chairs were designed by Lievore Altherr Molina emphasizes this distinction in the open-plan offices between meeting zones and general work areas. Moreover, the chair can be stacked and thus a lot of space saved. For the diverse uses in the Ernst&Young offices the choice was the version with four legs and for the bar stool. This was supplemented by going for the Duna 02 swivel chair by Lievore Altherr Molina – with a seating shell modeled on a flower calyx it creates a beautiful contrast to the clear lines of the Catifa 46. The new version of the plastic shell is made of polypropylene and has an even leaner profile than its predecessor. (am)
