The Holmen Group has activities in sustainable forestry, renewable energy, wood products and paper and cardboard production in the premium segment. Contemporary collaborations and a history that stretches 400 years back in time make it a company that is unique of its kind.
Studio Stockholm was commissioned to transform Holmen’s headquarters to take history into the future and highlight the company’s main products. Holmen has spent one hundred years at the premises on Strandvägen 1 in Stockholm. The new concept recreates the building’s original characteristics and mixes them with distinctly modern touches. Graphic art with an origami feeling by the American paper sculptor Jeff Nishinaka comes together with paper lamps, paper-like curtains and surfaces that have been formed from thin metal mesh to resemble the structure and aesthetic of paper. Delicate details contrast with heavier touches of oak and solid wood materials.
The 1,800 square-metre premises on two floors today comprise 60 workplaces that are characterised by Scandinavian nature, traditional craftsmanship and modern design.
