VRmagic is the leading provider of virtual reality and augmented reality simulators for medical training and develops image editing components for many applications. Here value is placed on brilliant visual impressions.
The positive development of the company and the associated growth made a relocation to new premises necessary in 2014. The new address “Soho Turley” is a unique quarter of Mannheim. The brick buildings built as barracks in 1900 and carefully restored were originally planned as individual offices. As however after the gutting the old building substance was revealed a different decision was made.
The result is large light-flooded lofts with cast iron columns, large windows in part with arches and open brickwork walls. The smoked oak flooring creates a comfortable atmosphere between glass and stone. Also in the fitting the valuing of constructive clarity and high quality materials is shown. Light and open desk configurations characterise this. Storage furniture are consciously held back in order to let the transparency of the room to take effect. For team meetings, the Bridge model desks on castors can be grouped together. An eye catcher is customised technology containers that due to rounded workspaces can cluster around the columns standing in the room.
It is exactly with this type of project that the advantages of a modular system become obvious: VRmagic could maintain the existing furniture, supplement it with similar and where necessary adapt this where necessary to the new spatial situation. The clear language of the furniture in combination with the material of the historic building substance creates an inspiring atmosphere and is a clear acknowledgement of quality and aesthetic.
