The new headquarters of the World Baseball Softball Confederation has been inaugurated in Pully, Switzerland, right next to the Lausanne Olympic complex. The World Softball Baseball Confederation stands out for its elegance, functionality and for the great attention to the environment: more than 90% of the building's electricity in fact comes from solar energy.
The new HQ is designed to display a new tangible perception of Baseball and Softball. Each seat of the large conference table, bespoke for this specific project and with clear links to the sport, provides independent access to technical components such as sockets, microphones and motorized monitors.
For the new HQ, UniFor created a bespoke 10.5 meters-long conference table. It pays homage to baseball both in its design and in the materials used. In fact, the top of the table is entirely covered in leather with the typical stitching of the baseball glove, including the cross and long stride.
For the new headquarters, UniFor created bespoke lounge chairs and matching tables which clearly refer to baseball. The exterior of the armchair is upholstered in white leather with the typical baseball stitching. Keep following us to discover more insides about the project!
The interiors project for the new headquarters wants to respect the outer shell of the historical villa. It started from a challenge to encapsulate the history of this sport and its inclination for the future in a single tangible architectural gesture. For this reason, UniFor created bespoke products such as the lounge chairs with baseball-shaped balls.
The architectural concept of the building consists of elements based on simple geometries, the modular repetition of structural components, and transparency. UniFor provided the furnishings and partition systems for the three upper floors, including custom works conceived specifically for the unique spaces by Herzog & de Meuron.
Feltrinelli Foundation headquarters is the first building in Italy designed by the architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron that is open to the public. The aim was to provide an interactive space, open to the citizens, and capable of demonstrating a multidisciplinary vision of ongoing social transformations.
UniFor produced all bespoke furniture for the Maison de l’Ordre des Avocats in Paris. A five-meter reception desk, a two tiers bookcase and “Bulles de confidencialité”, glazed cubicles where sensitive cases can be discussed in complete privacy, entirely made with UniFor’s RP Partition system.
The profiles along the base and the top of the DCA Partition Sysem are designed to remain exposed or to be concealed within the raised flooring and the false ceiling, in this way permitting the partitions to be integrated perfectly with the architecture of the host building.
The DCA is a modular, double-height partition system, created especially for AmorePacific, and subsequently added to UniFor’s collection of series products, was designed to separate meeting rooms, executive offices, work areas, and related services in an elegant and functional manner, as well as to delimit specific functions in the public areas.
DCA Partition System by David Chipperfield is composed of the following components: frames in painted or anodized aluminum profiles, glazing panels in extra-clear structural safety glass with insulating cavity, insulated infill panels with finishes in a variety of materials and swing doors with the same characteristics.
DCA designed by David Chipperfield is a full-height modular partition system for work environments, characterized by high levels of acoustic comfort. It was conceived for dividing and organizing differentiated work zones in an efficient and rational manner by creating flexible, protected, and reserved spaces.
Designed entirely by David Chipperfield Architects, the new Amore Pacific building echoes the aspirations of this modern organization by mediating between local and global, private and public, collective and individual, formal and informal, thus creating a dynamic identity in dialogue with the ever-changing urban surroundings.
The Amore Pacific building presents itself in the cityscape as an enormous cube. Laid out on 30 floors for a total of 216,000 square meters, it hosts, in addition to offices, a variety of public spaces, including an auditorium, a museum, a library, spaces for children, and cafés and restaurants.
Designed entirely by David Chipperfield, the building of the new Amore Pacific Headquarters is excavated by a central courtyard, three urban-scale openings and hanging gardens offered to the company’s staff as recreational spaces; this arrangement is effective in optimising daylight and natural ventilation.
