A Feast for the Eyes
After a total of 14 new colleagues were admitted this year, the need for a place of exchange and informal gatherings had become ever greater. A space that could meet the requirements of the new “Social Room” was quickly found and planning could begin.
Intact was fortunate enough to win DECASA Kreativstudio for the artistic accompaniment of the “Social Room” project at the Lebring headquarters of the software company. DECASA, which was founded in 2012 by the two sisters Carola and Sabrina Deutsch, impresses with its unusual, creative approach to a wide variety of topics in the fields of design, tattoo, and art. In recent years, the two have already been able to implement projects worth seeing for companies such as Red Bull, in the form of the City Beach in Graz, or the courtyard of Anton Paar GmbH. With great confidence, the creative people were therefore given a completely free hand for the realization of their masterpiece.
DECASA’s approach was to integrate the nature surrounding the company building into the newly created lounge and to bring the formerly monotonous walls to life with vibrant colors. The central motif of the fox stands for the qualities that Intact as a company also transports and lives. Foxes are great survivors who can learn quickly, grasp complex interrelationships and put their knowledge into practice in a flash. As adaptable survival artists, they are at home all over the world—from major cities like Berlin to the Arctic Circles. The Fox is thus also an incentive to find intelligent solutions and strategies and to continually increase our store of knowledge.
The Stomach Also Wants Some of It
Of course, the Social Room wasn’t just about art. Right from the first planning phase, the focus was on the aspect of social interaction. At Intact, lunch is traditionally taken together, either in one of the surrounding restaurants or in the company itself. As a result of the encouraging growth of the company, the existing kitchens and lounges simply could not provide enough space for the many employees. For this reason, a new central room had to be created.
A large-scale kitchen now offers plenty of opportunities to prepare meals and chat over lunch. In addition to two large dining tables for at least 16 people, a couch invites you to linger and relax. The whole thing is rounded off by a dart machine, which enjoys great popularity and is regularly used for internal company competitions.
The Reason for All This
As already mentioned, social interaction is one of the essential cornerstones of Intact’s corporate culture—not only as a guiding principle but actively lived. The great growth of the company has not stopped that. On the contrary, the new colleagues have already settled in well and the new Social Room finally offers a suitable place for social exchange away from the desk and meeting rooms.
