L.T. Enerray in Bologna

The new Bologna office of LT Enerray, market leader for more than 20 years in the maintenance of plants with renewable sources in Italy, as well as constantly expanding company, consists of a series of spaces with different textures, materials, and colors.

The need to characterize workspaces with colour led designers to select Manerba collections for their expressive flexibility both in terms of design and aesthetic-relational level.

450 sqm on two levels in a building within an office complex on the outskirts of Bologna, used as multifunctional spaces by Acabadomate, a studio founded by two Italian architects based in Barcelona, flanked by the interior designer Laura Muñoz.

Upstream of the project, an accurate chromatic study to characterize each area – from the meeting room to the operative workstations to the relaxation areas such as lounges and shared kitchen – with specific textures and studied chromatic combinations.

A hybrid space, shared by people who carry out different activities, satisfying an extreme flexibility of use, freshness of atmosphere and great visual and acoustic comfort.

For the partition walls “Wallsystem Linea” in glass was selected: a system of dividing partitions with metal profiles in aluminium (for this project in the colours grey and coral red) of different colours selected for the variety it offers in materials and finishes, unusual in the design of office furniture.

Apollo tables with an orange or teal structure, combined with Unibox drawer -units, play by contrast with the profiles of the enclosed spaces.

Designed by Shane Schneck, with his legs slightly apart – to simulate and remember the moon – it gives a pop, young and contemporary look to our workspaces. Many of the advantages of this system: with its powder-coated legs in various colours, from the “C” section, it can accommodate the cables at full height and connect them directly to the worktop: the choice of top material fell on a soft touch laminate in various colours coordinated at the base, combined with a vertical panel in sound-absorbing cork and comfortable to the touch.  The use of cork for the office is unprecedented: a natural, green material, pleasant to the eye and to the touch, with incredible sound-absorbing properties.

In the meeting room: a large Revo table in a sober and elegant finish with legs in white painted metal and a night blue tempered glass top.

The result is a less rational and more intuitive office, more domestic and less functional, with a playful touch and at the same time warm, just like the LT Enerray vision, a dynamic company that looks to the future.
