With almost 2,200 locations in 105 countries, SIXT Autovermietung is one of the world’s leading car and carsharing providers. The headquarters of the Pullach-based company in the idyllic Isar Valley have recently undergone a complete modernization. The main goal of the extensive renovation works was to create a dynamic working environment that promotes wellbeing, creativity, and a strong sense of identification with the brand. Carpet solutions provided by OBJECT CARPET make a striking impression as a key design element.
The refurbishments have breathed life into the premises, transforming them into bright office spaces that make it possible for employees to engage in open communication, yet that also allow for more focused work. The design concept centers around one key feature: A selection of different photo wallpapers capture a diverse range of impressions of nature, bringing each individual room to life in a special way. They depict, for example, a shoal of silver mackerel glistening in the sunlight, a dense deciduous forest, or a herd of black water buffalo. These scenes are complemented by lifelike figures that can be assigned to these habitats, such as a great white shark with its mouth wide open or a grizzly bear standing on its hind legs.
As an extra touch of detail, the brand’s signature color – orange – is used throughout, and reflects the company’s dynamism, innovative strength, and focus on a modern working culture. This extends from individual walls and the fabric covers for the privacy screens right through to the stylized animal tracks, which are dotted across the ceilings of all the rooms.
The POODLE 1400 carpet by OBJECT CARPET is also orange, and is used both to cover the whole floor space in one of the meeting rooms and as a geometric accent pattern in the open-plan office. With its expressive surface texture featuring a range of different pile fibers, shag is a real visual highlight and provides comfort and a cozy, distinguished ambience. This also applies to the other rooms, where it is also closely coordinated with the respective color schemes of the interior elements: sometimes in a subtle grey, a soft green, or a cool sea blue.
As an excellent sound absorber, POODLE dampens background noise, which considerably improves concentrated work, especially in open office spaces. Bitumen- and PVC-free with reduced odor and emissions, it also helps ensure that the indoor and working climate are healthy and environmentally sound.
