In the “Second Cycle Office” project, we design user-centered work environments with furniture and materials from the circular economy, which we give a second life.

Functional office furniture and materials are usually discarded by companies if they cannot be integrated into a new concept or working environment. A resource-saving alternative is to reuse them in other office projects – either in unchanged form or as a result of refurbishment or redesign with a view to the updated intended use.

“Second Cycle Office” is an ecologically and socially sustainable interior design concept for office projects. In the sense of a circular system, already existing raw materials are used. In order to keep the added value in the process as regional as possible, cooperation with local and social organizations is sought. As a first test project, the Kaserne Hauptbau in Basel is being designed sustainably in collaboration with Fluxdock.

In this project we work according to the guiding principle: “Form follows availability”.
