    RIEMSER Pharma GmbH is an internationally oriented pharmaceutical company specialising in the marketing, sales and life-cycle management of pharmaceutical products for therapeutic niche markets with a high medical demand in the areas of oncology, anti-infectives and dermatology. The company is focused on opening up new markets, as well as lengthening the shelf life and improving the profitability of its products.

    For the company’s new headquarters in Berlin, we designed the conversion of two floors of a 1936 listed building. We were inspired by the capsule form as a familiar unit of measurement for improving health and used it as the key design element for seating, ceiling panels, lighting lines, tables, room dividers and bar furniture. The wide hallway, an impressive 122 metres long, is a real spatial highlight. It seemed wasted as a purely functional space, so we created a light-flooded area for relaxing, exercising and socialising, and partially incorporated the reception area and cafeteria.

    Bright blue seating capsules alternate at irregular intervals with standing tables. Their presence and mobility inspire informal socialising and meetings. Scooters make it fun to travel along the length of the hallway, and there’s a fitness room for working out as well as a punchbag for letting off steam.

    The uniqueness of our interior design concept is based on the design variations of the capsule elements, the space-enhancing lighting and the juxtaposition of modernity and historic charm, clarity and playfulness.
