A Cocoa Workshop at the Office? Yes, Please!
2023 Best of Year Winner for Large Corporate Office
Ritter Sport’s square chocolate bars and color-blocked packaging are instantly recognizable by many. Lesser-known are the family-run confectioner’s core ingredients: diversity, authenticity, and tradition mixed with modernity. Interior Design Hall of Famers Peter Ippolito and Gunter Fleitz’s firm incorporated all these aspects into the client’s 40,000-square-foot Waldenbuch, Germany, headquarters, which includes a cocoa workshop, three cafés, and 130 desks. Extending the distinctive Ritter branding, glass partitions are laminated in vivid films that match the candy-bar wrappers, square cushions and tables appoint common areas, and grids appear everywhere—from wall tiles to an illuminated ceiling panel. The lively concept creates a motivating work environment where employees from all departments can meet and make sweet talk.
