During Stockholm Design Week, we unveil our new Stockholm HQ, a freshly renovated office space in central Stockholm. Designed by Stockholm-based multidisciplinary design practice Atelier Paul Vaugoyeau together with Hem’s internal design studio, the space embodies Hem’s vanguard design aesthetic and features hacked office features, such as a traditional grid ceiling, intentionally left visible, and simple materials such as storage made from lacquered MDF.
At the entrance of the office is a Puffy Brick counter, designed by London-based Soft Baroque. The striking sulfur yellow installation is made using jesmonite and an innovative moulding technique. This is the second Puffy Brick counter to be commissioned by Hem, with the first; a pink version, originally taking centre stage of Hem’s 2018 London Pop-Up shop and now to be found in the company’s restyled Stockholm Studio.
“As the Hem business evolves so has our headquarters. I’m very blessed to work with so many talented individuals – colleagues at Hem, designers and collaborators – and our new Stockholm HQ celebrates this; a culmination of all of this talent and where our experiments materialise.”
— Petrus Palmér, CEO and Founder of Hem
The new Hem HQ combines office space for 40 full-time employees, several meeting rooms, a design studio, photo studio, and workshop across 750² metres.
