For this important project, UniFor provided the furnishings and partition systems for the three upper floors, including both series products and custom works conceived specifically for the unique spaces by Studio Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with Coima Image.

The two floors devoted to offices are defined by full-height partition walls adapted to the project specifications, with structure in natural-finish aluminum fixed at the ceiling and glazed paneling inserted in guides concealed in the raised flooring. The reading room at the top floor has been furnished exclusively with custom works designed by the architects to complement the forms and geometries of the building. The library tables, also designed specifically for the space, feature frames in painted steel and aluminum, tops in oak, stained in matte black. The task areas, offices, meeting rooms, and waiting/lounge areas are furnished with Vitra chairs and sofas, while the break areas are equipped with Dada kitchens in white laminate, with top and backsplash in Corian.
