The Client:
Inspired Pet Nutrition Ltd (IPN) is a market leading FMCG manufacturer of pet foods. IPN are best known for their market leading brands, Wagg and Harrington’s.


The Brief:
Ben Johnson were appointed by IPN to provide a high spec furniture scheme for their new headquarters.


The Challenges:
• Having outgrown their previous office, IPN were struggling for space, with teams split between an overcrowded open plan office, and cellular offices.

• A key objective of the office redesign was to improve staff culture and wellbeing.

• The existing storage solution was a concern, with wall mounted shelves used around the perimeter of the offices adding to the cluttered and overcrowded feel.

• Meeting the clients budget aspirations without compromising on quality and design


The Solution:

During the design and development phases, Ben Johnson Interiors invited IPN to visit previous projects to meet clients and learn from their experiences, plus see the products in practice. We proposed a mixture of roller racking and localised storage as a way of maximising storage capacity for the high volume of lever arch files. The new storage system enabled the files to be out of site reducing the office clutter and making it easier for employees to manage and find documents.

‘Statement’ Bespoke furniture was ordered for the reception, board room, and client meeting rooms. A reception desk with back lit branding creates a lasting first impression and set the tone for the rest of the office. Premium quality, Hands Flexible Transcend tables and Senator Rhapsody chairs were chosen for the boardroom, and a monochrome theme was delivered in the open plan office area with sleek acrylic desk screens, benches with black frames and white tops with contrasting edge.
