Office interior by White Arkitekter shortlisted in SBID International Design Awards 2017

White Arkitekter’s design of the new offices for Telia, a Swedish telecommunications company, has been shortlisted in the Office Design category of the SBID International Design Awards 2017. The office space has been selected as one of the qualifying projects by a panel of judges in the first stage of the competition.


Telia’s office in Luleå, Sweden, is an example of how re-use can create an engaging office space. The furniture concept consists reworked furniture from half a dozen former workplaces. Hand-picked by White Arkiteker, the items were re-designed and re-crafted to suit modern office life. Divided into a collection of spaces, the office comprises work stations for focused work, open areas and demo stations in the customer service department and a lounge with space for collaboration.

After a public vote, a team of judges will choose the winning project. It will be announced in London on October 27 2017. The SBID Awards is regarded as one of the most prestigious accolades in the interior design industry representing talent and design excellence across all corners of the industry.
