A Tour of Miro’s New Amsterdam Office
Technology company Miro hired architecture and interior design firm M Moser Associates to design their new office in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
“The new Miro workplace design allows the team to grow, innovate and develop a thriving community. A big part of Miro’s expansion is how it helps companies innovate. M Moser Associates created spaces to test and develop new ideas and technologies. Every space in this workplace design is adaptable. Pouffes and chairs are easily moveable, and touch screens in every room allow people to share new ideas.
The design of Miro Amsterdam showcases the business as an advanced tech company with a fun, dynamic brand. The goal was to create a workplace that would bring a remote team together in person. M Moser’s workplace strategy and design teams designed hospitality-inspired spaces with different amenities to spark creativity and encourage people to move around the area.
The office design also supports new ways of working through settings focused on wellness and hospitality. The firm designed various meeting spaces for creativity, collaboration and focus. At the centre of the botanical lounge is a lush green planter. The bar area doubles up as a workspace, encouraging ‘Mironeers’ to come together over lunch and plenty of barista coffee. The campfire, with comfy chairs and laptop tables arranged in a circle, provides an ideal place to brainstorm and offers greater flexibility for meetings. Raquel Machado, Senior Associate Design, adds: ‘By avoiding any hard physical barriers, we are able to provide a sense of freedom and flexibility, enabling users to set up different environments as a way to get them out of their usual way of doing things.’ Sustainability was a key driver throughout this project, focusing on reducing waste and pioneering new design and construction methods. For example, M Moser retained the existing partitioning of spaces and repurposed existing materials. Where new materials were needed, the company chose sustainable options.”
