An intimate, contemporary bank office with a natural feeling was the goal. Bolon helped to fulfil their wish, says Geir Hermansson from Griff Architects. Even if Sparebank 1 is Norways second biggest bank concern they find their strength in acting on a local level. In their new office in Fredrikstad the interior concept was inspired by the surrounding nature and the archipelago. The collection Artisan from Bolon fitted the concept well due to its textile feel, good durability and acoustics, and the possibility to have a light, Scandinavian colour on the floor.
