Accelerating ambition: Thoughtful spaces and smart technology

News | 4 February, 2019

Through co-design, Studio Banana and Dimension Data are creating a collaborative catalyst environment for the global IT service company’s new headquarters in Switzerland.

A shared passion for space-driven transformation

If you want a collaborative mindset in your company, why wouldn’t you use a collaborative design process as well? Because design isn’t just for designers. For change to be truly transformative and not just cosmetic, designers need to turn clients and end-users into engaged project partners. That is exactly what is happening with our most recent partnership.

Studio Banana is excited to announce our recent workplace transformation project with Dimension Data for their new headquarters in Lausanne – Switzerland; a space that will host Swiss, European, and global operations.

“We are pleased to be working together; you are making the purposeful design process so intuitive and simple,” said Franky​ De Smedt, Managing Director of Dimension Data Switzerland, in a recent conversation with Key Kawamura, the Studio Banana partner in charge of workplace projects.

Dimension Data, an industry leader in information technology services, shares a common mission with Studio Banana: finding solutions to make sure people collaborate effectively within state-of-the-art work environments.

As HR Business Partner Arielle Perret eloquently said about Dimension Data’s partnership with Studio Banana, “When technology meets design, magic happens.”

Many thanks to the entire team at Dimension Data Switzerland for placing their trust in Studio Banana and our collaborative design methods.

On the success of our partnership, De Smedt said, “We especially appreciate your attention to detail and creative approach starting off from our company purpose, vision, values and strategy. We’re looking forward to more exciting projects to execute together.”
