Transferoil is a growing international company. Today, it ranks among the leading European companies of its sector and has acquired market shares at a world level thanks to the quality of its products and services.
Besides the Italian headquarters, the company has branches in Singapore, Shangai (PRC) and Houston TX (USA )
With this project, the client aims at expressing its internationality and its commitment to a better future through welcoming environments that boost dialogue and collaboration. The “no paper” mode represents an ecological choice, also encouraged by the use of water dispenser to reload aluminum water bottles supplied to the staff, and by a kitchen available for “plastic free” lunch and coffee breaks.
By interpreting the founder’s vision, this project exploit a contemporary but future-proof space: both welcoming and familiar, but also institutional. The project implements oak walls marked by black background mllings that gives the “barcode effect”. Light filters from large satin glass walls that quote the great architect Gio Ponti. These match with the “Diamantina” carpet that lays in the heart of the company. Overall, a workplace that becomes classic in materials while futuristic in forms.
