Södra is Sweden’s largest forest-owner association.
With 51,000 forest owners as its members who work together to run a successful company that creates profitability from sustainable forestry.
Commercial Interiors were instructed by Sodra to create an integrated environment where true agile working is encouraged falling in line with the company’s Swedish work culture.
To meet the clients brief electric sit stand desks were installed and a muted colour palette linked both the work and ad hoc work zones.
A work lounge was incorporated within the traditional café facility allowing for visiting staff to work alongside colleagues in a relaxed environment, quiet zones adjacent to the café gave the staff an area to focus and meet less formally, the meeting rooms were located either side of a timber clad feature wall which linked both client facing and ad hoc work zones reinforcing the Sodra brand identity.
The result was an inspirational workspace that challenges traditional ways of working.

“From the initial stages of product selection, through the detailed planning of the furniture layouts, to the final detailed scheduling of the furniture requirement, I found the Commercial team very supportive and customer focussed.”
