Set among mountains in picturesque Central Switzerland, 6280.CH coworking hub is a new venture of Swiss furniture maker Novex whose former manufacturing hall has been transformed into a contemporary workspace with interiors inspired by the nature and culture that surrounds the village and the traditions of furniture production that once took place in this historic factory.
It was very important for the client to set themselves apart from other coworking hubs by retaining the distinctly local character. Evolution Design researched nearby lakes, mountains and endangered plants as well as client’s archives for historic images of the building’s industrial past and highlighted these features into design concept that reflects Swiss mountain pastures, lakesides, wooden farm buildings, flowers, and furniture making traditions.
Client’s skills in furniture production allowed to design and custom-make most of the fittings and furniture: metal work, acoustic panels and lampshades. An old joiner’s bench was recovered from storage and converted into a large communal table, and a former shipping container has also been upcycled and converted into a diner-style meeting pod.
