A Look Inside Becherovka’s Cool New Prague Office
Liquor producer Becherovka recently reached out to interior design firm Capexus to design their new office in Prague, Czech Republic.
“Even tradition sometimes needs a shakeup. Becherovka, which has been produced according to the same recipe for more than 200 years, has new offices. The employees of Becherovka, which is part of the Pernod Ricard Group, one of the two largest producers of spirits and wines in the world, longed for more distinctive and prestigious-looking offices. The office features colourful meeting rooms styled according to Becherovka, Jameson, Beefeater or Havana Club spirits, as well as its own bar.
The original drably coloured premises ceased to meet the company’s requirements and the employees moved to a modern location in the Centrum Stromovka in Prague, the Czech Republic.
Although it exports worldwide, Becherovka places great emphasis on its Czech roots, which is why the offices are primarily furnished with furniture by domestic brands. For example, the iconic TON chairs made of bent hardwood can be found here. CAPEXUS also supplied all the atypical furniture, such as the bar-style wooden reception desk and the bar consisting of a single piece with a wooden countertop and integrated ambient lighting.
The illuminated spaces are dominated by industrial elements. We mainly used exposed concrete and left the ceiling open so that all beams and ducts remained visible. The exposed materials in combination with wooden furnishings, glass partitions and colourful details create a pleasant atmosphere for work, business meetings in the conference rooms or relaxation”, says Capexus.
