OMA, 2022

UniFor and OMA initially collaborated on the design of the furniture for the common and lounge areas of the OMA-designed Axel Springer Campus in Berlin in 2018. The pieces have been reengineered and optimized into a highly modular and customizable collection. The resulting collection combines OMA’s design ideas with the precise application of UniFor’s technical and manufacturing expertise.

Design OMA, 2022

Principles are the basic ideas or rules that explain or guide how things take place or how they work. Laws, for example, or theorems. The organisation of space is one of the first rules of living in a community, especially in the case of public and other shared locations. It is one of the fundamentals of architecture.

The result of this research is a collection of micro-architectures composed from a range of over one hundred elements in the sizes S, M, L, and XL, organised by families: tables, soft furniture, screens, spines, and sofas.

PRINCIPLES offers an infinite world of compositional possibilities for every type of space—working, waiting, meeting, or relaxing—each with its own identity configured by means of different forms, colours, and dimensions.

Each piece in the collection has been specifically designed to ensure the flexibility of the workplace. The desks and tables have double-layered surfaces for multiple uses.



OMA is an international practice operating within the traditional boundaries of architecture and urbanism. OMA is led by eight partners – Rem Koolhaas, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, Chris van Duijn, Jason Long, and Managing Partner-Architect David Gianotten – and maintains offices in Rotterdam, New York, Hong Kong, Doha, and Australia.
