  • Heller Designstudio was engaged by software company, Vector Informatik, to design their new offices located in Weilimdorf, Germany.

    Vector Informatik’s new office is called the Firestarter, a space that promotes intensive exchange amongst employees. The main task was to find an architectural solution to provide work environments for open groups, as well as highly concentrated scenarios. No facility management should be necessary to transform the space.
    In this case the scrum method was used to define the room arrangements. It varies from big open space communication to small sized introverted working teams.

    We wanted to overcome the white high-end offices where employees are afraid to speak up. Great teams are the capital of each company and are encouraged to claim their space. Easy materials, playful colors and a zero hierarchy floorplan gives the team the power back.

    Bring in all your personal stuff, pin down your footprint and enrich the company’s personality.
    The Firestarter can be faded seamlessly between an open space office to a cellular office. instantly gaining the best of both worlds when needed.

    Easy to use flexible walls are shaping enclosed spaces for concentrated work but still maintain visual connection. Plug and play ready desks can be spontaously rearranged for different setups. Just take your own container with you and recreate your personal place.

    The Firestarter was designed to create collaborations between team members engaging informal encounters. Lounges, coffee areas, video- and small meeting rooms are always in close proximity. A collaboration software was customized to obtain a highly interactive, BYOD and transparent workflow.
