Axel Springer new Headquarters
UniFor is proud to have taken part in the new Axel Springer headquarters in Berlin project. The new building of the German media company has been inaugurated last October 6th. For this important project UniFor supplied a complete collection of bespoke furniture designed by Rem Koolhaas, OMA.
Axel Springer new headquarters has been officially inaugurated on October 6th during a ceremonial opening with inaugural speeches by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, architect Rem Koolhaas and Axel Springer CEO Mathias Döpfner.
Exactly four years after the start of construction, the new cube-shaped building is the latest addition to the Axel-Springer Campus, the ensemble of different premises at the media and technology company's headquarters.
UniFor developed for this specific project a line of completely bespoke seating systems, panels, pods, desks and tables, all designed by Rem Koolhaas.
The new Axel Springer building will offer 52,000 square meters of work space for more than 3,000 employees and is characterized by its open, transparent architecture. Straddling the former border of the Berlin Wall, the 45-meter high, light-flooded atrium divides the building into sections in a perpetual encounter with each other across the space. In the space between, 13 bridges create connections between the sections and provide inspiration for physical encounters in the digital age.
