The office of Pennings Akoestisch Afbouwen in Rosmalen was recently renovated, with a high-profile, contemporary, and atmospheric interior that was created in close cooperation with Plan Effect, a leader in high-quality and innovative partitions for over 30 years.

Pennings, an expert in seamless acoustic ceiling systems, now has an office characterised by its warm and homely as well as industrial atmosphere. In addition, the interior has a highly transparent character, partly due to the use of Plan Effect’s glass partitions. “We see a clear shift from traditional offices towards offices with a more hotel lobby-like, cosy and luxurious atmosphere,” says Marcel van der Ziel, owner of Plan Effect. “The trend is reinforced by the corona crisis: people want to return to the office not only to work undisturbed, but also to meet colleagues.” Therefore, an inviting, open, and warm atmosphere that encourages cooperation and interaction is desired. The partitions from Plan Effect offer many possibilities for this. Hence the company’s slogan: ‘designed to connect’.

The partition used at Pennings is the EGO, a system that offers a lot of design freedom and is therefore eagerly used by architects. EGO has a tough, industrial, and vintage character and the system can be combined with many different styles. This partition also has a higher sound-insulating effect, which, in combination with Pennings’ acoustic ceilings, ensures an extremely pleasant working environment.

The glass partitions in the Pennings showroom are combined with another important current trend: the pivot door. Like the partitions, the pivot doors are made of aluminium with a bronze finish. The advantage of aluminium is that it is lightweight, durable, and can be used to create extremely slim and sleek details. The pivot doors are fitted in a recess with partition panels with veneered wood strips, which not only provides a warm appearance but also contributes to sound absorption.

Wout, Sales Plan Effect

During the corona crisis, one thing became clear: mountains of work can be done from home, but … we miss the office environment. A place to meet, to work undisturbed and where we make plans together. Interaction is important and the “office of the future” provides space for that.

“Socialising at the office is becoming increasingly important,” notes Wout van den Brink. “We recently noticed how much value we attach to maintaining social contacts. We can collaborate perfectly well via screens, which is why I think we will continue to meet online. But it still lacks the casualness and room for creativity that arises when you meet physically.”

Plan Effect recognises the growing trend of interiors and partitions serving as reflections of corporate identity. “Interior designs are now intricately tailored to the preferences of the users, while the selection of materials and colours harmoniously align with the corporate identity. This evolution has resulted in offices becoming more individualistic and imbued with a unique atmosphere.” Additionally, there is a heightened emphasis on quality.
