When architectural firm Intark was awarded the contract to design the interior of auditing firm Solregn’s new offices in Oslo, there was a desire to add some colour to the office environment and reduce noise. Hanging textiles from Svensson’s Grain collection were part of the solution.

Solregn’s office complex is located in an industrial area of Hagan, just north of Oslo. This firm of auditors is undergoing a period of expansion and has grown into its new office space on a former industrial site. When the architects at Intark were commissioned to modernise and update the office’s interior space, one of its goals was to bring that industrial feel into the modern office. At the same time, it was also important to soften the somewhat “harsh” indoor noise.

– As an architect, it’s reassuring for me to know that the textiles I want to use for noise insulation have a verified noise insulation rating. That way, both I and the customer know that we can trust the product to do its job, making it easier for me to order the product for the project, says Ine Elisabeth Bangås, Intark CEO and Architect.

The curtains and other hanging textiles chosen for the project came from Svensson’s Grain range. Primarily for their function, but also for their look.

– For me, my absolutely priority is always function. There’s no use having a cosy office if it’s not a good working environment to be in every day. So obviously sometimes we’re forced to compromise a bit on style or function, but with Grain I feel the product not only fulfils its function, it also has the aesthetic qualities I’m after,” says Ine Elisabeth Bangås.

Noise insulation in meeting rooms and other conversation spaces, minimal disruption from the photocopier, and more colour and texture throughout the office were all part of the project.

– Grain comes in loads of great colours that were pretty much the perfect match for the design at Solregn. And the fact that many of the colours have a subtle colour change on the back of this reversible fabric makes Grain highly versatile, says Ine Elisabeth Bangås.
