Fricke Landmaschinen Heeslingen

What began as a one-man operation with a borrowed field forge and anvil in 1923 is now an internationally operating enterprise: the FRICKE Group employs over two and a half thousand people at 64 sites in 25 countries. At its headquarters in Heeslingen, the company has rung in another chapter in the company's history: in the new Fricke Campus, a location has been created that does justice to modern work processes. The design team from POPO described their work as follows: "In the main building, the employees work globally in generous office spaces with variable event areas and a modern bistro." The team sees the bistro as the centrepiece of the light-flooded, generously proportioned spaces. In its capacity as a centre of communication, it creates "space for relaxed discussions in an inviting atmosphere". The interior concept plays with a mixture of grey in various textures, shades of green, natural materials and small gold highlights. Nimbus luminaires and acoustic absorbers belong to this concept. "On a holistic level, they fit in wonderfully with our design," says Jörg Leiermann, a project planner at POPO. Lighting Pads in combination with Rossoacoustic PADs lend structure to the ceilings in the reception area and the bistro. Nimbus luminaires have also been used in almost all the other rooms. As a whole, they create a uniform, tranquil impression and produce a lighting atmosphere to match their specific use.
