A feel-good environment Inspirational offices for system-catering company in Munich
System-catering company L’Osteria owes its success to authentic, Italian cuisine enjoyed in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere. The franchise company has already opened around 50 restaurants in German-speaking countries. Now the company wanted to fit out headquarters at its Munich birthplace to match. They were seeking a concept that translates the restaurants’ informal atmosphere to a contemporary office environment. Interior designer Axel Frey came up with a design and colour scheme that in combination with uncluttered layouts fosters stimulating and focused working practices. Office task chair ON’s crisp design and its three-dimensional sitting options make it a perfect choice for this concept.
