Horreds is most known as a brand with designed desks and storages. But we also got a softer side with furniture created for lounges and creativity rooms. In this newsletter we present the gaming company Kings office, where Potomac and Mute were two of the building stones to create a vivid and colourful working environment.
CASE: KINGS OFFICE
Together with Adolfsson & Partners Anki Gneib has recently been a part of creating the gaming company Kings(the creater of Candy Crush Saga) new headquarters in Stockholm. Anki has designed Horreds Potomac.
“A Kingdom” is Kings soul communicating, where “fun” and “magic” have been the leading theme. The result is a vivid and colourful office, where Horreds design furniture Potomac and Mute became some of the worlds building stones. King had a vision of many lounges, meeting rooms and different creative spaces. A working environment which promotes both digital and physical meetings, as well as places for relaxation, concentration, focus and fun.
– It has become more and more important to express a company’s identity and culture visually through design and architecture, says Anki. There is a big competition for talent and the working environment is a key factor in the recruitment. A creative working environment contributes to happy, loyal and motivated co-workers, she concludes.

In active environments at successful companies there is a lot of movement. At such working environments it’s important to create space where you can espace for a while to concentrate. A meeting or a tricky task. While seated in Horreds Mute you forget the environment for a while and get your own room where you can concentrate and think undisturbed.
Mute is available in different shapes and sizes and you choose the material and colour fit for your brand.
