Something that you notice straight away when entering the building is a grand gear wheel installation on the left wall. A custom design
from PET Felt, it refers to another core value of De Vorm - namely, “Process first”
. Just like the wheels of a gear mechanism, De Vorm's design process is infused with technological development; innovation drives aesthetics and the other way round. The gear wheels can actually move thanks to embedded mechanism.
The whole building was once a large open space. To bring some structure to it without taking the open character away completely, the team designed many geometric blocks from PET Felt
in soft pastel colours. These blocks serve as flexible partitions between the zones, balancing their contrasting appearances.
