To gradually return to the office, EDGE asked Fokkema & Partners to revisit the design that was delivered just a year before.

Timeline May 2020 - June 2020

Thanks to the ambitious client, we were enabled to take on a positive way of looking at the nessecary safety measures and avoid using any unhealthy materials.

With p-ART-ition workbenches transform into pedestals with elegantly framed canvasses which naturally blend in to the workspace. The separations communicate culture as an expression of common ground. Moreover the experience of art intuitively guides user behaviour. Acoustic measures are integrated to increase comfort.

The materials used, including the ink, have no toxic emissions and are easy to clean. They are durable, making the solution suitable for the long term, and they are remountable after disassembly. To realise p-ART-ition within a short timeframe, we worked closely together with Horizon Creative, specialists in the exhibition industry.

The EDGE HQ serves as a testing ground for new concepts and ideas. With p-ART-ition we introduced a positive take on covid measures.
