  • Artdesk Group recently completed the design of the offices for Direct Energie, a French electric utility company, located in Paris, France.

    Thanks to a fruitful collaboration since 2014, Direct Energie entrusted Artdesk Group with a new floor of its offices to develop its headquarters in Paris.

    Direct Energie aimed to transform this traditionally organized floor into open collaborative spaces offering “new generation” living and working spaces. The operation carried out by Artdesk Group consisted in a renovation of the premises as well as the implementation of new facilities. Artdesk Group has therefore proposed to develop the Living Office by Herman Miller.

    For this new collaboration, Artdesk Group and Direct Energie were committed to build an environment conducive to innovation, collaboration and creativity. To keep up with the increase of its workforce, a lease of an additional floor of 900 m2 was intended to provide new spaces for conviviality and meetings including the creation of a business center of fifty places.

    Kidimo has added its soul to the relaxing and warm atmosphere by finding 200 objects on the travel and escape theme : a few hundred books, novels and travel stories, iconic objects such as a wooden deer, elephant and plants. A neon “WELCOME” integrated in a library at the entrance of the spaces welcomes visitors. There is also a room where employees can relax and enjoy the sun in a relaxing atmosphere
