We’ve finally taken a bucket and paintbrush to our lovely courtyard offices two years after moving in, and we’re so proud of the result we thought we’d use this week’s blog post to show you the outcome. And not without good reason…
Our starting point was to create a calming atmosphere for all who visit, to bring the light in, and to bring people together in an informal, Scandinavian way. Lots of white walls and furniture, aided by a lot of windows and skylights, are the perfect Scandi template here.
For the decoration, we chose to use those walls to keep us all connected to the natural drama of Scandinavia by framing some of the spectacular landscape images we’ve captured on our travels. The walls also serve to give our collection a space to breathe and to help remind ourselves of why we’re all here.
On a more practical level, we combine height-adjustable tables from Swedish giant IKEA with the iconic Norwegian-designed Håg Capisco, a chair from the ‘70s inspired by horseback riding to help better posture. It’s the first-ever office chair to be awarded the prestigious Nordic Swan Ecolabel in recognition of its minimal environmental impact and majority use of recycled materials.
Why are we telling you all this?
It’s not just because we’re proud, it’s also because we’re always looking for new talent. So, if you believe in what we’re doing, in the benefits of a more Scandinavian approach to life, and would like to join us here, then send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In particular, we’re currently looking for passionate and curious people with experience in areas including ecommerce, online customer service, sales, and communication, plus we’ve also just started up a student intern program, so the opportunities at Skandinavisk are limited only by your ambition.
Or, for those of you that just plan to visit Copenhagen simply for pleasure, you’ll soon get the chance to experience our courtyard as we’re busy working on a new retail space downstairs which we hope to open to visitors later this spring. Watch this space…
