With a total space of some 14,000 square meters Steelcase demonstrates its expertise in creating efficient working environments for leading organizations.

Steelcase recently opened its new Learning and Innovation Center, (LINC, for short) in Munich. Here, in its second Center (the first is in Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States) and covering a total space of some 14,000 square meters Steelcase demonstrates its expertise in creating efficient working environments for leading organizations. At LINC, its new center for research and development in Europe, Steelcase promotes corporate learning capacity and innovative strength.

To design the three buildings making up the campus Steelcase joined up with Henn Architekten and Patrick Jouin of design duo Jouin Manku to pool skills. “We really enjoyed working in this interdisciplinary team with Steelcase to create innovative and pioneering working spaces that put people first,” comment Henn Architekten. The result: work spaces with a cozy atmosphere that offer staff numerous opportunities for choosing the right environment to suit the task at hand. There is a focus on communication and transparency with a centrally located “WorkCafé” that extends over two floors. In this way, rest and recreation can meld with meeting situations. Openness was also called for when locating the workplaces for executives: The “Leadership Community” on the first floor is a hub accessible for all employees. This not only encourages staff-management interaction, but also makes management more visible for the regular workforce. (am)
