A capsule form translated into a design element

The international player in the marketing, sales and life cycle management of medicinal products for humans, Riemser Pharma GmbH, has established an additional location in Greifswald.

The interior design of the three-storey building, developed by the Berlin interior design firm of Reuter Schoger, is defined by design features reflecting and derived from capsules, the dosage form for medication.

The high-ceilinged, open plan spaces have been furnished in a functional, almost minimalist style. The capsule-shaped space dividers, tables and counters with their white surfaces form a stark and dramatic contrast to the dark flooring. The CNC-milled Troldtekt panels as the ceiling elements reflect not only the design of the furniture; they also ensure optimal room acoustics in the hallways and spacious offices.

In addition, baffles were installed on the ceilings in the offices and hallways. They not only hold the lighting, but also reduce the reverberation time within the rooms. Because sound is absorbed on all surfaces of the sequentially arranged Troldtekt panels, the otherwise untreated ceilings are still visible.
