The design of the Indeed office in Düsseldorf combines a strong local character with an international working environment. The warm and colorfully textured office provides the employees a homey and comfortable atmosphere to work in. Recognizable and well-equipped meeting rooms allow them to meet with colleagues from all over the world.
The office is situated in a court yard office building with big open plans. We designed custom made frame elements which introduce a human scale. They feature plants and styling elements and work-related devices like screens or sales gongs and also double as ward robes. Besides, they form natural partitions between the work stations and the informal lounge areas. Strategically placed on the building corners, these lounges invite employees to have a break or informal meeting while overlooking the city of Düsseldorf.
We collaborated with the local artist Ben Mathis, who is famous for his artworks on façades around Düsseldorf. For the Indeed office, he made paintings of abstractions of typical German subjects, like Football, the Autobahn, Hamburg Harbour and Berlin wall. The expressive paintings, each done in unique colors, now cover the core of the office floors while complementing the balanced material pallette of the interior. It gives the international office a colorful and local character.
All meeting rooms have their distinctive character. The graphics on the acoustic walls build on the typical German themes that also inspired the pixel art walls. They form a recognizable background during video conferences and ensure perfect acoustics to allow for concentration. The Düsseldorf office is one of multiple offices which HofmanDujardin designed for Indeed. They all meet international standards while reflecting a strong local connection.
Indeed made a short clip during the first days in the new office. We’re happy to see the enjoyment of the employees, who will work in a completely new environment.
