Randers - DK

Debel's headquarters are in the south of Randers municipality. For thirty years, the company has supplied blinds, curtain solutions and bathroom design accessories to the European DIY market. Debel has a strong wish to break the mould with respect to its philosophy, working environment, products and development. The Danish office, designed by architect Mikkel Frost (Cebra), and its interior design reflect the creative and innovative values that Debel stands for.
The layout symbolises a roller blind seen from the side, with the 'blind' curled around the centre. This effect is carried through and even beyond the building to the lawns. A central cone on the first floor has the atmosphere of a library and overlooks spacious displays of material samples. Moving down to the ground floor, the product is the centre of attention: high units direct customers' full attention to what is exhibited.  The careful arrangement of desks brings energy to the showroom: evident well-being and an exciting work environment with efficient sound reduction (integrated into both building and furniture) send positive signals which encompass the products themselves.
