Locally based Note Design Studio has revealed its design of the new offices for tech consultancy Samsen in Stockholm. Although commissioned as a workspace and meeting venue in the heart of the Swedish capital, the atmosphere is reminiscent of a cozy, cool wine bar and café informed by Japanese dining and design traditions.
“When we did our first presentation for Samsen, they first went quiet. They had to explain to us that they didn’t want an office at all—they just wanted to work in a wine bar,” says Note interior designer Susanna Wåhlin. “The whole idea is to offer employees something different and add real value besides going to work every day.”
