ICA Head Office
From scattered offices and overcrowded premises to a new and modern head office where flexibility and expediency/functionality are in focus.
To gather staff and knowledge within the company under one roof, Swedish supermarket chain ICA invested in a new head office in Solna. With keywords such as genuine and authentic, TEA developed an interior design concept that included and strengthened the brand in everything from colours to materials, meeting the requirements for the building’s Environmental Certification BREEAM Excellent.
Offecct entered the project early on and worked closely with ICA and the architects to create the most optimal interior design solutions in line with wishes and expectations.
“I had the first contact with Maria Bidegård back in January 2017. There then followed a thorough analysis to find out what ICA needed and what were the important key factors,” says Jens Furhoff, who headed up the project between Offecct and ICA.
“Sustainability issues and environmental focus have always been high on the agenda in our collaboration. Combining world-leading design with high quality and minimal environmental impact is sometimes a challenge, but something that Offecct is good at and that often gives a very good result for our customers,” Jens further explains.
Offecct has delivered furniture such as chairs, armchairs and room divider solutions, as well as bespoke sofas for the public areas.
“It has been a very stimulating collaboration, where we have built prototypes that were tested, evaluated and adjusted by ICA and the architects – all to get the most optimal solution for this particular project. A project of this size requires close cooperation between several parties, and I would say that the cooperation between us at Offecct, ICA, TEA and Input Interiör has been very successful.”
