Helsinki, 2007

Blyk is a mobile network company with a strong communal spirit among its employees. Therefore, the office design for Blyk needed to reflect its brand while allowing people to come together and collaborate in different situations. Ilkka Suppanen designed a flexible, interchangeable system that gave the users freedom to appropriately configure the space themselves throughout the day. Movable mesh curtains created varying levels of transparency and privacy while large, shared desks encouraged natural communication between different divisions of the company. In addition, this solution maintained the great view of the city, maximizing the amount of natural light and the sense of space inside. The overall result was a fun and dynamic, yet unified office environment for the brand.
