• How does the new Microsoft office in Italy
Microsoft House - Microsoft new office in Milan, whose interior project developed by architects DEGW Italia, making the mix of all that is associated with the concept of "100% Italian design."
The office is located in the iconic building, the architects Herzog & de Meuron, and new interiors fully meet the corporate values of the company: openness, visibility, flexibility, energy, dynamism and innovation.
DEGW implemented project - part of the process that Microsoft provides for several years under the name of "new world of work". The concept is a flexible approach to the dynamics of work and the use of functional and technologically innovative spaces that serve as targets to maximize cooperation. These ideas provide workspaces, providing opportunities for the different working methods.
The two lower floors of the building is the client area, open to the public and demonstrates Microsoft's products. Floors two through six are reserved for company staff and its partners.
Work zones differ according to the type of activity for which they are intended and are grouped in clusters of carefully designed with special finishing of furniture and floor. Within these sub-areas are allocated, creating a transparent space with optimal sound and environmental efficiency. Another fundamental feature of the project - the availability of public hubs, spaces where people can gather and hold informal meetings or to enjoy short breaks in fellow society. Topics that define the mood and tone of these social centers - sports, nature and the city; made for them to order furniture and decoration correspond to the declared themes.
The whole design of furniture and accessories made in the Italian taste, using natural materials such as wood, which creates a warm and friendly environment.
