Until January 2021, Indicum has had an exclusive framework agreement with the Swedish Defence University for four years. The Swedish Defence University offers education and research in the fields of defence, crisis management and security and has a total of around 800 students and around 380 employees. The Swedish Defence University has recently been in a phase of development, which has resulted in the school expanding to new premises and also invested in rearranging existing premises to meet the new needs. The projects have been very varied and have included work on office environments as well as teaching environments and public spaces such as the entrance, library and reception areas, and the development of signage programmes.

Försvarshögskolans new and existing premises needed a facelift with a focus on reuse and long-life furnishings.

Solution

The new and existing premises of the Swedish Defence University needed a facelift with a focus on reuse and long-life furnishings. The overall interior design concept is based on the natural world as it relates to the work of the armed forces in the air, on the ground and at sea. With this in mind, Indicum has developed a soft colour scheme for the walls and fabrics, alternating in blue, green and russet tones to reinforce a sense of nature and also to give the interior a solid feel, the furniture is mainly made of wood.

Study social space in corridor where new and old meet.

A small room for teaching and group work has been created next to the library entrance hall.

Gilded bayonet legs.

The colour scheme of the walls and fabrics alternates in blue, green and russet tones.

Work booths for private meetings, individual work and spontaneous meetings.
