One of Scandinavia’s leading banks, located in Helsinki, has teamed up with architecture studio Gullsten-Inkinen to improve the functionality and modernize the aesthetics of their staff restaurant. With the purpose of attracting staff to use the dining space outside of work hours – Gullsten-Inkinen created an environment that is both fun, playful and unexpected – without becoming too much. Playing around with flooring and using it as as a tool to separate different areas, among them Bolon’s collaborative collections with Jean Nouvel and Missoni, Gullsten-Inkinen has created what could be one of Finland’s coolest staff restaurants. This is a prime example of how creative flooring solutions can optimize an open space!
