Tripolis Offices is a collection of three office buildings in a campus-like setting. Designed by Aldo van Eyck, considered the Grand Old Man of Dutch architecture, they were built in 1991 and have been home to major companies. In 2012, Nikon set up its European headquarters there and commissioned Moriko Kira to transform the inside of the building into an open-plan office to encourage sharing and innovation.
The project manages to lend a personality of its own to each octant of the building thanks to the colour scheme designed for each area.
The furniture fitted is TEC, with 200 work stations arranged according to the bench concept and separated by PMMA screens. The seating consists of the most operator-oriented version of the Dis chair and Trazo for conference rooms and multi-purpose stations.
Storage requirements are met by 850 T-Box storage modules which also serve to separate some stations from others.
