3M canteen by STIRIXIS, Athens – Greece

April 11th, 2017 by retail design blog

Stirixis Group created the new office canteen area of 3M Hellas, the Greek subsidiary of 3M. 3M is a global company that applies science to develop products and solutions that make life easier, better and more complete for people all around the world. The 3M Science exists in more than 50.000. The company operates in more than 70 countries, while 3M products are sold in nearly 200 countries. 3M Hellas, present in Greece for 46 years now, distributing 3M products in Greece & Cyprus, decided to create the canteen area at its head offices in Athens.

Main objective of the specific project was to redesign the canteen area in its whole. The reason for the renovation was to offer a better working environment to its employees, solve functionality issues but also use the specific area to carry out informal meetings. Creativity, teamwork, networking and bonding between employees were also an objective of the project. The canteen area was designed in clear lines to express the cutting edge and innovative character of the company. At the same time, we balanced the whole style with an environment which is friendly and welcoming.

The predominant colours are white and dark grey and are matched perfectly by our designers with more soft colours as well as wooden style flooring. Details of red are incorporated also to follow the colours of the company. The overall ambiance is open and vibrant and together with the environmental graphics a modern and convivial atmosphere is created. Three different sitting areas were created, to answer in every arising need. An area with stand tables for a quick break, lunch tables and a lounge area with sofas for informal meetings and bonding between the employees.

Mrs. Kallergi, Legal & Compliance Manager of 3M, notes on the collaboration: “Working with STIRIXIS is always a unique experience. The high-level aesthetics, innovative ideas and creativity of the STIRIXIS team delivered an excellent result by creating a modern and relaxing environment for 3M people. With simple modern lines and smart solutions they transformed the existing space to a totally new experience and exceeded all employees’ expectations. On behalf of all of us a big thank you to the STIRIXIS for their professionalism and collaboration –you turned our vision to reality”.
