  • BMA Group was tasked with creating a space for Delachaux to attract employees back to the office in Paris, France.

    Giving priority to spaces for discussion and conviviality in order to support changes in working methods and make employees want to come to the office after the Covid pandemic. It was the guideline given to BMA Group by the management teams of the industrial group Delachaux for the fitting out of their new head office in the “Portes de la Défense” building in Colombes (92) belonging to Gecina.

    Organized around the “village square”, the work and convivial spaces are designed to be ergonomic, bright and warm.

    Located directly at the entrance, the “village square” is the dynamic heart of the plateau.

    In addition to its vocation of access to other spaces, it allows employees to have a place to work in a versatile way, either co-working or individually. Attached to a “living room” space, it “breaks” the rigidity of the 800 m2 plateau, bringing a certain elegance thanks to its curved walls and the vegetation that has been added to it.

    The square serves a central part made up of meeting rooms surrounded by closed, semi-partitioned or open workspaces with 4 to 20 workstations. These have been fitted with acoustic layers ensuring better sound insulation.

    A kitchenette completes the tray. Its bench and the planter give it a “terrace” spirit.

    Particular care has been given to the furniture, especially the seats where the key word has been comfort and ergonomics. The choice fell on iconic brands, regularly highlighted by BMA Group: Herman Miller, Prostoria, Muuto, Midj and Pedrali.

    Finally, natural light is elegantly complemented by a multitude of suspensions, strips (some of which are made to measure) and wall lights which highlight the warm tones chosen for the office furniture, floors and partitions.

    The objective of the Delachaux group was clear: to have office spaces more conducive to formal and informal exchanges between employees.
