The catalyst for the recent project at Upfield was to create a new home for the business and design a new office that reflected their values, ensuring it supported their future needs. Upfield wanted a space that allowed their customers to be fully immersed into a product and category journey with state of the art technology and a professional kitchen to demonstrate Upfield products in a homely environment.

As a plant based Food Company, it was essential that Upfield mirrored their business through the aesthetics and materials used in the design and planning of their new office. There was a challenge with this aim as the timeline to deliver the project was extremely tight which meant that the project needed to be completed within an 8-week period.

Upfield contacted Kinnarps after a recommendation from their central team. Kinnarps were able to offer a wide range of furniture alongside bespoke items for this project. With a clear understanding of the brief, Kinnarps were able to advise the Upfield team with their knowledge of products and finishes.

“We were given time and support to explore all options in determining what was ultimately going to be right for us. Kinnarp’s showrooms really enabled us to see what the pieces would look like and helped bring things to life. The combination of discussions, ideas and Kinnarps design expertise resulted in some amazing office spaces.”
