  • Oktra has designed a new office space for the London operations of printing solutions company Ricoh.

    As one of the largest IT companies in the world Ricoh’s reputation as the total printing solutions provider is becoming well established. The company is one of the world’s leading innovators of office equipment technology with a research and development programme that brought us the first digital copier and a complete range of original engines. Ricoh’s product range now spans scanners, colour and black & white laser printers, digital connectable colour and black & white copiers, multifunctional devices, network utility software, document management software, facsimile machines, digital stencil duplicators and office consumables.

    We were tasked with providing an office space and working solution for 350 of Ricoh’s employees, on a fast track timescale which of course had to be within budget.

    We designed a bespoke and very impressive front of house reception area for clients and team members to meet and greet. The open plan scheme enabled Ricoh to free up space for a central modern and fun breakout area, informal meeting areas and plug in points. The main boardroom consisted of custom made furniture and audio visual installations.

    Overall, the design is clean and professional with a hint of ‘fun’ and modern day space planning.
