The DHL supply chain in Jažlovice redesigned by VONT architects features clean and neutral spaces with interior elements linked to logistics industry.
Simple but quality work space for the managers, better work environment and custom designed furniture are a part of the redesigned office area. Vont Architects combined the facility remodeling and interior design along with elegance and modern design. The supply chain office is a celebration of industrial decor and elements which create elegant and employee-friendly space. Elegance and modernity prevail in the reception zone while the working zones have uniform grey and white colors tones.

From the Architects –
The concept for the DHL Supply Chain offices was created through a unique cooperation between the client and the architectural studio VONT. The clear visual identity doesn’t leave anyone guessing the nature of the field the DHL company works in, despite the absence of its corporate colours.
The goal was to create a quality work space for top tier managers, an environment for creative atmosphere. In general, a better work environment mainly in the sense of lighting and acoustics.Sketch from the architects
The biggest quality of this space are the clean and neutral areas that let the independently standing pieces, linked to elements from the transportation industry, truly come forth. These exclusively designed details and solo pieces are present through-out the interior.

Interior material palette and art objects in DHL office –
The metal suspended ceilings, installations and lights, built-in wood and metal furniture reminds one of transportation boxes. The table legs from forklift skids, work desks tied with straps, dividers made of cardboard boxes and other components are elementary for clients´ DNA.
Rooms along the corridor have a entry door and fixed glass panel on other end
Grey tones and wood used in reception space
An interesting accent comes in forms of unique art objects also inspired by the industrial field of logistics and transportation: the Shibari light by Kateřina Handlová (glass bulbs tied together by ropes).
Wire mesh ceiling throughout the spaces
There is a lighting relief by sculptor Matěj Hájek (thin-profile concrete casting on a steel frame) and large format Bet Orten photographs (the author´s original technique of printing on sheet metal panes). And the result? The interior as a whole creates great potential for gatherings and encounters as well as teamwork.
