Interviews

We spoke with the team from Lindström Croatia. Learn more about their range of mats and why mats are an important part of the design of your business space!

Can you tell us a bit more about you, how long have you been represented on the Croatian market? Lindström is a Finnish company with over 170 years of experience in renting and maintaining mats and work clothes. The company is present in 24 markets across Europe and Asia. Our own workwear factories in Europe allow us flexibility and fast delivery of products to our customers. We have been operating in Croatia since 2013. We opened a laundry in Zagreb and offer rental and maintenance services throughout Croatia. How many rug collections do you have on offer? In offer we have: - standard mats of different colors, - design of mats made according to the client's request, - ergonomic mats that make it easier to stand for a long time when doing work, and - external rubber mats for entrances to the premises. In your opinion, why is a mat an important part of the interior design of any business space? The mat at the entrance to the space, in addition to giving warmth to the space like any carpet, also gives the visitor the impression that the owner cares about the cleanliness of the space he enters. Mats of any kind are extremely functional because they remove dirt from shoes that would further explode in space. The misconception is that only during rainy and snowy days dirt is brought into the space. You would be surprised how much sand and dust our mats retain throughout the year. We see this best according to the degree of water contamination after washing in our machines and the sand separator that we regularly maintain. The mat also makes it easier to clean the rest of the space because the coarse dirt that is brought into the space remains on the mat. This reduces the cost of maintaining the space in terms of less time the cleaner spends, less chemicals, water for maintenance and the like. It is important to emphasize that we maintain mats in an environmentally friendly way using appropriate detergents and minimize water and energy consumption by using the right washing programs. Do you offer custom-made mats and design proposals? Design mats can be made according to the requirements and wishes of the client where they can communicate various marketing ideas, customer brand or simply messages such as Welcome, Watch the stairs, signposts, etc. We also offer pre-designed mats by our designers in various forms such as a doormat in the form of a signpost to the toilet, the marking of floors in buildings and many others. Mat shapes can be different and in different sizes. Briefly explain how your service works? Our service works very simply. Once all the elements needed to make a mat have been agreed upon, the rest is our concern. The elements include the definition of the type of mat, the size of the mat, the design (if you want your own or something from our offer), and the monthly frequency of change. Our sales representative can help you choose the help of our live design tool application where it takes a picture of your space and virtually sets up different mats to make it easier to visualize the space. After agreement on the product, the frequency of changing the mat is defined (weekly, biweekly, fortnightly or at least every four weeks). After signing the contract, the service can start. In accordance with the agreement on the day of delivery, our delivery people will bring clean mats and collect dirty ones. Mats can also be fixed with a velcro to the floor to further avoid moving the mat and the possibility of the mat sliding in space. The frequencies of changes can also change during the year depending on the seasons, and the mats can be moved to another location if the client's company moves. The service is very flexible and suitable for all industries and spaces.

Interview with Mr. Markica Stanušić, CEO of Ancona Group

Can you tell us a bit more about the Ancona Group, how long have you been in business and how many employees do you currently have? Today, Ancona Grupa is a renowned company from Đakovo with a leading position in the Republic of Croatia in the sector of production of wooden and upholstered furniture and interior carpentry. Since its founding, 20 years ago until today, we have continuously invested in production technology and employee education in order to stand alongside global competitors. Given that more than 60% of contracted projects come from abroad, we definitely achieve that. We currently have 156 employees, and that number is constantly growing thanks to agreed projects. I am extremely proud of our successes and the fact that we are changing the image of "dormant Slavonia where nothing is happening." You wouldn't believe it, but in our team we also have people from Zagreb who come to work in Đakovo. The Alpha Centauri campus from Infobip is one in a series of your projects. Can you tell us a bit more about that project? We are very happy to be a part of the creation of a project like this. We are working diligently on the Infobip campus and it is definitely one of the more demanding projects. We equip their business premises, public spaces and accommodation units. Their employees, I am sure, will enjoy everything we have been preparing for them for some time. Such projects let me know that we have developed and that we continue to develop continuously, in the right direction. Many hours of work are invested every day in order to meet the highest criteria, and when we see the final result together, it is a special pleasure and a sign that everything invested has paid off. In which markets are you currently represented? Although we are a company based in Đakovo, most of the project equipment we do is for the foreign market. We cover various sectors - we equip office, hotel and residential premises. In Europe, we mostly do business in the German-speaking area and in the Benelux countries. And outside of Europe, we work in the U.S. and the Middle East. As we grow, so do our plans, and with the experience we have accumulated over the years, we have noticed the possibility of entering some new, still intact markets, which we believe have great potential. We are interested in, for example, Georgia, Tunisia and Nigeria. It is exciting to enter new markets as well as explore them, create an image of opportunities, explore business opportunities, as well as culture. In your opinion, will flexible mode become standard mode in the future? It largely depends on the business and culture of the company, but it is very likely that the future of work will consist of a combination, work from the office and work from home. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. But one thing is for sure - nothing can replace human contact and we will return to it to a greater or lesser extent. It is important to create an environment that encourages productivity, in which employees feel relaxed and comfortable, regardless of the location from which they do work. Change is constant, it should be strived for, and why not adapt to our capabilities and try to get the best for business and employees. There is more and more talk about new ways of working, but also about changing the structure of office space as a place to work, I'm talking about the optimization of office space and new concepts of office space - diffuse offices. Will the new concepts of office space lead to changes in the production and design of office furniture? It will, and it's already happening. Crisis times are difficult in many ways, but there is one great thing, and that is that they encourage us to be creative, new solutions, to innovate. I must mention our table Ala (although it is intended for catering), which is very adaptable to a situation where a certain distance is required. It is designed so that the plates move, so the desired distance can be made between the people sitting. We also produced an office desk with a partition that can be placed in the desired location. In addition, there is a partition for the Taraba space as well as a Sfumato shelf which can also serve as a partition in the space. More and more such ideas will be implemented in the post-pandemic period in order to satisfactorily arrange the space for a larger number of people living inside. The interior is taken to a new level, and the functionality is even greater than originally imagined.

It’s time for office branding! We spoke with Ivana Leko, Business Development Director of A0 d.o.o. and their brand WE SEE the importance of branding business premises.

Why do you think it is important to brand and decorate the walls and glass surfaces of the office? As partners for printed visual promotion, we remind our clients of an old, well-known saying: "A picture speaks more than a thousand words". Branding an office, retail space or any other space you have means communicating who you are, what you do, what your values ​​are and show it at every step and at every moment. Imagine an unforgettable impression that you will leave on your visitors with an attractive interior design. Everyone likes to stay in an attractive and pleasant environment and keep coming back to it. How can we use the areas and which areas are crucial? How many times have you found yourself wandering the hallways of a business building and looking for which door your client is hiding behind? That is why the front door is one of the most important surfaces on which we need to place the visual elements of the brand in order to raise our visibility in the eyes of visitors and other passers-by. When entering the office space, there is a reception desk or a back wall, so it is most effective to place a 3D logo made of forex for this key position. You walk through the office spaces, and the walls are empty and monotonous. Why not use them? The possibilities are numerous, and we harmonize the choice of visuals and materials with your communication wishes and the materials of the spatial design itself, so that the overall impression of the ambience is pleasant, tasty and elegant. A meeting room is a space within which company values ​​are communicated, and they can be displayed using wallpaper or stickers, paintings on canvas or forex boards with a frame. Often, meeting rooms are separated by glass walls that you can cover with foils that will create an atmosphere while creating a space of discretion. Let’s not forget the company’s employees because we want them to spend their working hours in a comfortable and functional environment that will support their productivity. What makes you different and how do you help clients with office branding? We are entrepreneurs ourselves and we understand how important it is to be able to recognize and use all the opportunities and resources to improve our business. We believe that with quality printed visual promotion we can reach customers in a simple, affordable and impressive way. That is why with our complete printed visual solutions, consulting approach, experience, knowledge and professionalism we have been supporting clients for many years and making them more visible. We have also prepared a rich database of photos on our shop: shop.vidime.hr, which will help us create the best solutions together with you, visualize them, and graphically prepare them for printing and editing. Our main mission is to make every client visible, and a large number of projects and satisfied clients prove it. What message do you want to convey to those who are renting office space right now or want to refresh an existing office? We often overlook that we have free surfaces, such as shop windows and office walls, that we can use to communicate with our audience. We want to encourage entrepreneurs to think about the potential they have, because you do not need to invest much to create a comfortable space where employees want to stay and customers are happy to return. If you do not know where to start, contact us and together we will create the right solution for you! Feel free to contact Ivana via her Linkedin profile.

Interview with Robert Bukvić - SquareOne coworking by Rent24

1. Can you tell us a bit more about your coworking office? Rent24 is a global full-service provider offering its customers value by combining a flexible and innovative work concept with a large network of people that make up our Rent24 community and from which each individual can profit. Our locations provide the possibility for our members to dedicate themselves to their work and its success without any distractions as we take care of the perfect work environment - whether its e.g. the functional and beautiful design language, cleaning or coffee supply. In addition, at SquareOne by Rent24 there will be a dedicated part exclusively to women entrepreneurs with specific subsidies. 2. What makes you different? We see that your coworking is five friendly We started Rent24 more than 5 years ago in Berlin, one of the most vibrant startup hubs in Europe. As an entrepreneur myself I fully understand the needs of founders and business(wo)men, and therefore developed our coworking spaces accordingly. Our spaces offer you advantages you would usually only have in bigger companies, like a front desk agent, meeting rooms of all sizes and highly professional technical equipment. In addition, we are always in close contact with our members and know that it has a positive influence when you are allowed to bring your dog to work. As said before, we want to offer you the perfect surrounding to help you to grow your business in the best way possible. 3. Can you tell us a bit more about the coworking department for women only? In Croatia, to my knowledge we are the first ones to offer entire floors exclusively for women because we believe it is important that women here will receive full support for smooth work. This means to give the possibility to connect and cooperate with other professionals and to work in an inspiring space with the most modern equipment and design. In addition, in comparison to regular office space, we will offer a childrens playroom, a babysitter on request, a gym, showers, a powder room, a place to relax and unwind and a kitchenette with unlimited coffee and tea. In the ground floor is amongst others a cafe with a terrace and a lounge restaurant planned. Moreover, we have made good experiences investing in businesses and ideas of the members of our premises and plan to do so also for women entrepreneurs in Croatia. So, in cooperation with our partners, we have created an additional program for subsidies for single mothers and mothers of children with disabilities where we want to offer them free use of our facilities and all the benefits we offer. All interested women can apply via the form on our website ( www.squareone.hr), regardless of the activity they are engaged in. 4. There is more and more talk about the flexible way of working, and about the new concept of the office - Diffuse office space. Can you tell us a bit more about the new concept of the office as such? We have seen the trend of flexible work already years ago, that's why we started to offer coworking. In our opinion, an office should be a beneficial space in comparison to the home office and include special facilities like different sized and styled conference rooms. It has never been efficient for companies to have big meeting rooms which they need to pay rent for but rarely use. In addition, the more people work remotely or from home the less each person needs a dedicated desk in an office. In general, the pandemic boosted the trend of flexible working and changed the requirements for office space. It's more important than ever that offices are efficient and atmospheric, they should be a place where you want to go to get creative input and exchange with others. 5. In Croatia, the startup ecosystem is growing, the number of freelancers is increasing. What changes do you think await us in the future when we talk about office business? Do you believe that some startups will decide to work 100% remotely? Croatia is still in its infancy when it comes to coworking. In contrast to the US or Germany, much more educational work has to be done on what coworking is and what advantages it brings. The potential is very high though. The startup and tech scene in Croatia are vibrant and companies are increasingly focusing their work on the international market and attracting foreign capital. The concept of coworking can help young entrepreneurs and companies make the right contacts and organize their work more efficiently.

Interview with Mirela Marović Omerza, founder of BIZkoshnica coworking space in Zagreb

Can you tell us a bit more about your coworking office? BIZkoshnica is one of the first coworking spaces in Croatia. It was opened in the fall of 2015 and has since been a home and place for work, meetings, gatherings and events for a community of hundreds of micro-entrepreneurs, freelancers, members and employees of associations, professionals in a wide range of professions, and our creative tenants. The specifics of BIZkoshnica are its attractive location in the city center on Zagreb's Britanc, pleasant and stimulating atmosphere and professionally arranged space that meets all the requirements of today's digital and mobile entrepreneurs and a team of business advisors and mentors who serve community members in realizing their business ideas and business development . So, BIZkoshnica offers much more than just office and communication infrastructure, it is a place where we share space, knowledge and ideas and nurture the values ​​of openness, flexibility, accessibility and sustainability. The definition of coworking that we prefer is the work of independent individuals and companies from different fields of activity in a common shared space, based on mutual cooperation and networking, and encourages the growth and development of each user and his business with the support of the coworking team and community. How did the crisis with the pandemic affect and how will it affect the coworking concept that was on the rise? As we have become accustomed to the constant and continuous growth of demand for coworking services in the last few years, the crisis has shaken us quite a bit like most industries, especially service industries, but it has also helped us to wake up and reset. The global pandemic has caused and accelerated the inevitable change in the way we work remotely and work from home. People accepted this change after the initial shock, but it turned out that the home office also has a lot of shortcomings. Most people at home do not have adequate working conditions, feel isolated, have many distractions they are surrounded by, from household chores, children, pets, all of which affect reduced productivity, lack of focus, harm to people's mental health and work from home is not long-term. solution. Thanks to the flexible conditions of use, and at the same time satisfying all health, safety and social measures, one of the possible solutions for entrepreneurs as well as corporate employees who cannot use their company's offices during a pandemic is the use of coworking space. Eg. instead of teams of employees working from home in inadequate conditions during the week when they are not in the office they can use the coworking space. The use of coworking space is also supported by the accelerated digitalisation and digital transformation that has benefited the pandemic in many sectors and the fact that more and more employees have become workplace independent. It is becoming a general trend for remote workers to grow up who do not need to be physically present in the company they work for. Already now in the world about 40% of the total workforce are freelancers or self-employed, and on the other hand there are estimates that by 2030 there will be 1 billion digital nomads globally. All these changes will affect the fact that companies will gradually reduce their office space, which will increase the demand and need for alternative places to work, and the demand for coworking spaces will grow. Therefore, I am optimistic when it comes to the perspective of coworking space in general, but it will be necessary to monitor and listen to the needs of users so that their existing concepts can be adapted in the best possible way, but flexibility is one of the features and advantages of coworking. Many creatives and companies from different industries work in one place where they can share experiences, but also save on utilities. In your opinion, what are the advantages of working from a coworking office? There are a number of benefits. Eliminating the already mentioned feeling of isolation at work from home, working in a professional and representative space, which is much more affordable than renting your own office and paying all office expenses, encouraging creativity and innovation, and of course increasing productivity, then coming to new business opportunities and associates and countless opportunities for collaboration and networking, informal transfers of knowledge and skills over coffee, lunch and socializing together. I like to point out that by staying and working in a coworking space, some doors often open for you and you come across business opportunities and projects and people that you would otherwise very likely not meet. Getting a quick feedback from fellow coworkers and ideas for solving a business challenge is also often invaluable. In coworking, we witness the daily personal and professional development of community members, which leads to strengthening the professional competitiveness of each member and a better quality of life to separate private from business space and strengthen satisfaction and feelings of happiness and success. Can you explain to us the difference between HUB, Open Space Office and Coworking Office? I believe that a lot of people are confused by the terminology related to the different types of shared office spaces we encounter so I will try to clarify. HUB denotes a place that gathers many people and may include a physical place, but can only denote some central event. In coworking terminology it is used for spaces that offer office and other customer services. An Open Space office is a type of office in which several people, usually employees of one company, work in one common open space, while in coworking spaces users who do not necessarily belong to the same team or company can share an open space office or desk in one common open space. Coworking as one of the derivatives of the ‘sharing economy’ denotes office space and the community that shares that space and at the same time shares knowledge and other resources. Coworking space offers fully equipped fixed and flexible workstations organized in open or closed work zones, can also offer separate offices, then space for events for members as well as for external clients from meeting rooms, workshops, lectures and halls for larger events , lounge space, kitchen with bar… Coworking spaces offer short-term and long-term coworking packages depending on the needs of users. There are many types of coworking spaces from luxury, full service coworking spaces located in urban centers, to rural coworking spaces. There are also niche coworking spaces specialized for a particular type of user, such as women entrepreneurs, families, the IT industry, chefs, digital nomads, makers and spaces for creation, and there are coliving spaces, which in addition to work space offer their community and accommodation facilities. Each of these spaces is characterized by a specific design and level of equipment. Have your clients returned to your Coworking office? Most of our members returned to BIZkoshnica after the lockdown and earthquake, because they need space to work and have to continue with their jobs in the best possible way. Since our members are mainly engaged in digital occupations, there are not too many changes in the performance of work compared to the time before the pandemic, except that we have adapted the space to the 'new normal' and adhere to all prescribed epidemiological measures. After a long break, meetings and smaller events began to be held in the space again, and one of the major changes is that in addition to live events, the so-called hybrid events, which, in addition to participants who are physically present, are also transmitted digitally via streaming and are available to an online audience that is not present at the event itself. As you see the world economy after the pandemic, it is known that there are a lot of digital people in Croatia. Do you believe that number will increase? Globalization and market liberalization with the development of technology have enabled the development of digital occupations and a ‘new’ way of working. The pandemic itself has further accelerated this trend so that artists, creatives, developers, marketing professionals, business consultants and many others can provide services around the world. Given its geographical position, natural and cultural beauties, Croatia is a very nice place to live, so the benefits of living here, and working for clients from around the world sound very tempting not only to Croatians but also to many digital nomads from different countries. This is supported by the work visa for digital nomads, which was introduced so that we expect a large number of digital nomads in Croatia. The charm of digital nomads, such as freedom and autonomy, is also hidden in the place of work, ie coworking spaces that are available to everyone today. In coworking offices, foreigners and locals get to know each other, cooperate, contribute and it is this wonderful vicious circle of coworking and exchange of knowledge and experience for the benefit of society and community that we love and live every day in BIZkoshnica.

We talked to Branimir Valičević from Plan2B about trends in office business, and what the office of the future will look like!

Tell us a little more about your company, what do you do? Our company Plan2B is a company with a very simple vision - to create unique and exciting spaces with character. Every member of our team is committed to this vision, where everyone makes an essential and indispensable link in the system. This has enabled us to become recognized and well accepted in the market in a very short time - because we always provide added value to each client. We have built an excellent network of suppliers and partners and made it possible for us to truly create unique and exciting spaces with character for each client. The point is to weave the basic thread of the company's character into its space, because in this way people then, by entering and being in this space, feel the culture of the company and more easily decide on long-term engagement and loyalty. So, we approach each client exclusively professionally - whether they need to completely redecorate or rearrange their offices or whether they only need one ergonomic work chair. Thus, we are able to prepare a conceptual solution, display it through 3D visuals, offer delivery and installation of all solutions shown through visuals (furniture, floor coverings, glass and mobile walls, as well as other necessary accessories), and finally after sales to the client any additional queries. In your opinion, what are the most important trends regarding the optimization of office operations? The office is no longer just a place to work! Back in 1973, Jack Nilles, a NASA engineer at the time, suggested that in the near future people would not have to leave their homes to do their jobs, and thus not have to spend so much time just traveling to and from work. which in turn would leave them much more time and energy to improve the balance between private and business life. More than 10 years passed from that moment until the first attempts to work from home, but everything led to this scenario. In the meantime, there were many attempts to realize this scenario, and only in the 2000s, with the advent of the 3G mobile network, and laptops with the ability to connect to WIFI, things began to accelerate. However, technology was not the only important factor that would enable work from a remote place, but also culture, organizational and managerial inertia towards this goal. In the end, no one could have predicted that the virus (COVID-19) would shake the status quo, making not only working away from the office an option - but also a necessary and only way to work for more than half the world’s working population. The pandemic has forced companies to adopt telecommuting as a way of survival, regardless of size or sector of work. In a way, we found ourselves in a kind of global experiment, and in a very short time we were forced to see the possibilities offered by teleworking. Who managed how - time will tell quickly. I would like to emphasize here that through this time, since the crown crisis hit us, we have actually witnessed the acceleration of existing trends. Namely, the trend was to question and introduce work from home, as one of the benefits for employees and now it is clear that we had to face many challenges in a very short time, but also the solutions that this way of working offers. Realistically, it would be interesting to see statistics that show us how many people have heard of (used) tools such as "Zoom", "Teams" and the like before the beginning of 2020, and how many today. I am sure that today everyone uses some of these tools, whereas before they were a means of work for a smaller part of the working population. The trends and interesting figures can be seen in the following view: Do you believe that the concept of the office, as a place to work, will change in the future? More and more people are advocating for work from home? Undoubtedly, this situation will lead to some new models of work, but the office will certainly remain an important part of the system. In fact, the end result will not be the disappearance of the office, but the development of a better, more advanced office. This new, better office will be a gathering place for employees because they want to, not because they have to. Therefore, it is important to create the office so that it is flexible, comfortable and offers four zones for which employees will be able to choose how and when to use them. The office will have to be such that it offers its employees an experience that other places cannot offer them. At the same time, more and more new research is pointing to problems that can be caused by working from home. These problems are physical as well as mental in nature. Physically - due to lack of movement and fresh air, and due to inadequate work equipment and unadjusted ergonomics of the workplace. On the mental side, we often have a feeling of isolation, a lack of structure of the working day (everything "divorces" us in one long working day), and it turns out that we actually work more than in the office. Therefore, I am sure that neither people will want to work only from home or outside the office, but nor will they want to agree again to work exclusively in the office. A new model of office view is being developed - DIFFUSION OFFICE. The diffusion office describes the office as an optimal space ecosystem consisting of three locations - a traditional office, a work environment from home, and a digital space. This technological component is also a defining feature of the diffusion office. This model takes the best of existing teleworking models, and applies new and innovative technologies, to ultimately elevate this model to a new level. Will there be changes in the production of office furniture? Of course, there will have to be changes and adjustments in the production of office furniture. In fact, our partner SEDUS, which this year marks 150 years of successful work, has already presented a whole range of solutions for a new way of working - se: lab - solutions for agile way of working. There is, for example, a mobile meeting table that turns into a writing board in seconds. * The image shows the SEDUS solution being: lab tableboard Or desks that are easy to maneuver quickly and modularly stack the office: * image shows SEDUS se: lab workstation Also, there are, in addition to the already accepted office telephone booths and "office within the office", separate free-standing rooms within the existing office - for quiet meetings, and easily foldable and foldable in a new location: We see that the corona crisis had a strong impact on office operations, ie digitalization of operations. Now all meetings are held online, do you believe it will stay that way in the future. That people will avoid larger gatherings and events and that they will continue to use digital tools for online communication? It is very important to be aware of the fact that what people miss the most today, when it comes to the office - are the people themselves, colleagues, colleagues. Man is by definition a social being. No online meeting can replace that moment with a coffee machine, when we exchange a few optional sentences with a colleague. Because, it is a known fact that it is informal interactions in the office that are fertile ground for generating new ideas. The corona crisis only further highlighted many things we were already aware of or heard about from more developed markets. For most people, the aggravating circumstance of the workday was wasting time traveling to and from work. For them, the absence of this obligation was the main benefit of the lockdown. If one positive thing about this crisis, caused by the pandemic, had to be mentioned, it is certainly the ultimate and accelerated digitalization of business. It should be noted that Microsoft has learned that during the lockdown and remote switching, the number of meetings increased, and that the duration of the same decreased (on average now lasts about 30 minutes). To summarize, the office of tomorrow - diffusion office, as the next step in the development of the office as a place to work, will allow us to take the best of all previous models: office efficiency and structure, home comfort, and tools that come with accelerated digitalization. This will ultimately allow us to have a better balance of private and business life, which is what we all strive for. Some of the interesting figures, shown by recent research, are taken from sedus.com

Interview with Iva Šilović, dipl.ing.arh from the company Prostoria

Can you tell us a little bit about your company? Prostoria is an example of a company for building a successful business and the identity of a domestic company with superbly designed and manufactured furniture, which has gained confidence in the niche of design brands, the most demanding international market segment of furniture. Over the years, Prostoria has gradually built a positive image of Croatia as a country with a quality production culture. The room was founded and run by Tomislav Knezović, who has dedicated his professional life to the furniture industry for 27 years. This company invests in innovative projects, necessary technological plants and experts who surround it. The premise of this brand's success so far is its focus on uncompromising quality design, production and investment in employees who nurture equal values. Thanks to the innovative design of its furniture collection, Prostoria has grown into an international premium brand that is respected by its fierce competition. Among them are legendary design brands from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy and France, active for 70 years, and some of them for 100 years. Many of them moved their production partially or completely to China and the countries of Eastern Europe 20 years ago, while Prostoria set it up in Hrvatsko Zagorje. Starting with the production of upholstered furniture, the first Revolve sofa became a kind of design icon, and was soon followed by the Polygon armchair, whose international popularity is constantly growing. Polygon is considered to be the example of furniture that every connoisseur of good design in the world wants to have in their home. In this way, the collaboration with the designers of the Room focused on the development of innovative pieces of furniture. And each new design required new technological solutions, and the Room gradually, over the first eight years, invested in all furniture production technologies to control its quality. Thus, from a manufactory, Prostoria has grown to a high level of industrial production of furniture made of wood, metal and upholstered furniture - which is a rarity in the world. And in the production process itself, top materials such as Slavonian oak, premium leather and fabrics are used. It is equally important that during its first eight years, Prostoria became an integral part of Croatian living culture, imprinting on it a characteristic note of modernity. At the international level, it has gradually built a positive image of Croatia as a country with a quality production culture. In addition to many private interiors, the premises of PwC in Australia, one of the five globally leading business consulting companies, the offices of the pharmaceutical company JGL in Rijeka, the Radisson Blu Hotel in Helsinki, Starbucks in Milan, the luxury Warehouse Hotel in Singapore, the business lodge of Platov airport in Russia, the foyers of the Park Inn by Radisson hotel at Zurich airport, the One Suite hotel in Dubrovnik, the Navis and Bevanda hotels in Opatija, Google offices, Facebook and the like. Currently, more and more people work from home, do you advocate this way of working? For the past 20 years or so, offices have become more and more similar to hotel lounges or lobbies. Spaces are being created where employees will feel relaxed, where they will be able to rest, sit in a comfortable armchair while having phone conversations, hold a meeting at the bar table ... this crisis has only accelerated the process that was going in that direction anyway…. What do you think the office is? The office concept refers to a work zone that is defined by specific work surfaces. These surfaces today can also be a dining table and chair, sofa or armchair. The space can be open or minimally enclosed, for example, by the body of the armchair. The perception of the "office" has shifted and the furniture, which until yesterday was considered residential, works equally well in business premises, which brings a more relaxed atmosphere of home, necessary for additional motivation of employees.
