A change based on responsibility

When Nordea moved to its new premises on Lindhagensgatan in Stockholm, responsibility was the most important starting point for the transformation. Martela supplied the furniture and served as coordinator of the interior design project, which involved multiple suppliers. The customer’s vision was to create an entity that would receive as high an environmental classification as possible on the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) scale. The project was eventually awarded LEED Platinum certification, which is very rare in the Nordic countries.

Martela Lifecycle - an answer to responsibility requirements

The customer expected Martela to focus strongly on environmental aspects and responsibility throughout the project. The excellent end result demonstrated to both the customer and Martela that the company’s new production model meets even the most stringent responsibility requirements. The project was based on the Martela Lifecycle® model, in which companies are provided with an approach that covers the entire life cycle of the office, not just furniture deliveries. The model makes facility management easier and helps companies operate in a responsible, environmentally sound manner.


New tops for old legs

In the Lindhagensgatan office, the customer wanted to make maximum use of the existing furniture, and Martela was able to provide a solution that met this need. As many of the existing adjustable desk bases as possible were reused and new desktops were fitted to match the new look of the facilities.

Around 1,000 desks were refurbished and reused in various Nordea offices. Furniture that was not suitable for reuse was sold through Martela Outlet. The customer’s wish came true: nothing was thrown away.
