Designing for Innovation

Trelleborg AB is a world leader in engineered polymer solutions that seal, damp and protect critical applications in demanding environments, having headquarters in Trelleborg, Sweden.
Being a business that’s driven by innovation, the brief for its new offices for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Bangalore, sought a design that facilitated transparency, connectivity, collaboration for both staff and visitors.  It also demanded something that would suit its ideology & beliefs, as well as its identity as a   trendsetter in the industry that provides the right solutions across different verticals.

Zyeta was the chosen one. Zyeta established in 2008 is currently located in 3 cities across India.
A team of young and dynamic architects, interior designers, engineers and project management professionals designers, engineers and project management professionals with a zeal to excel offer highly innovation and distinct solutions.

Zyeta worked closely with the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions team in India, to create a workspace that is timeless, fun, fresh & energetic and one that clearly reflects the high-tech image of the company, as well as remaining faithful to the firm’s corporate identity standards.

Strategic location and zoning of the functions, utilizing the best of the building’s potential, for example, locating the reception and Innovation Centre near the lobby area to maximize on the façade glazing and an eye-pleasing view of the flyover network that connects two important nodes of Bangalore city; another added benefit of being in the upper most floor, with more natural light and better view of the surroundings.
Starting with the design of the reception table - inspired by the company Logo - and further focus on making the reception space iconic, yet simple. The island ceiling of cylindrical extrusions act as a huge man-made chandelier that complements the symbolic reception table. The combination of these two elements, complimented by the right selection of single monolithic seating, made this space timeless and eye catching.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions team had an acceptance for changing trends in the workspace design, which allowed us to make this space more trendy and timeless, from the initial stage of the design. Zyeta made an effort to make the office more collaborative and open, to promote the companies vision and identity, which resulted in the formation of the layout which is highly collaborative &social.

The Layout is configured in a way to provide clear demarcation for public (visitors), meetings, offices and collaborative, social spaces. The office is divided into three parallel parts, with the central mass housing the collaboration spaces, phone booths and informal meeting spaces surrounded by six foot wide corridors on either side with the workstations towards the building façade, making the maximum of the natural light for the workstation area.

The Office space is further divided into three segments, each segment is self-sustained with cabins, meeting rooms and workstations depending on requirements, with the common central social spine (collaboration spaces, informal meeting spaces) in the center catering to all three segments collectively.

A small library in the vicinity makes the team more knowledgeable and engaging with ideas, as Trelleborg Sealing Solutions encourages their employees to read at work to improve their knowledge about subjects.
The Board room is placed near the entrance and it’s highly detail-oriented design represents the core beliefs of the company and their standard rooting to the basic solutions, the Ashok chakra graphic that balances the whole rich look of the space and also brings the awareness about Trelleborg Sealing Solutions being in India.

Graphics (frosting) on glass that ties up the entire space is inspired by Trelleborg’s polymer futurist thread like structure, with a dominance of grey and touches of green, orange and yellow, giving the space its own unique personality.

Colored carpet tiles, bar stools, tables and carefully chosen decorative pendent lamps at casual meeting spaces and the collaboration areas, visually reinforce the identity & innovative leadership of the company.
The central spine comprises brightly expressed feature paints, which are cheerful, to bring down the stress levels at work and also acts as a guide lining element.

The graphics within the workspace reinforces the presence of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in different segment related solutions from Outer space to Seabed; they also engage the employee and reflect a common language of innovation across the entire office space.

Overall Zyeta’s collaboration with the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions team has made this design carefully consider the business philosophy and their identity. The unique workspace represents a workplace that is fun, vibrant, celebrates & accelerates creativity to do things better and touch human lives with boundless solutions, every day.

Together we make this world better place to live
