Cargill GmbH is a company working alongside farmers, producers, manufacturers, retailers, governments, and other organizations to fulfill their purpose to nourish the world in a safe, responsible and sustainable way. Together, they create efficiencies, develop innovations, and help communities thrive. We had the pleasure of speaking with Hermann Steep, Managing Director of Cargill. What kind of use are Framery pods meant for when it comes to the office of Cargill?

“The motto of our office work is: Find the right spot for the task at hand. For standard document and computer work one may prefer to sit at their desk, but for longer phone calls, meetings or quiet work other locations can be much more suitable. And with more and more people coming to the office, it can be used for a short break as well, as a place of silence, where you go for 5 minutes to take an “acoustic shower”, rebooting and finding peace.”, Hermann tells.

Proximity and quality design

We also asked Hermann Steep why they chose Framery pods as part of their office design. Hermann declared that Framery pods fit well into their office space without damaging the open space concept, as would additional walls do.

“When it comes to short informal meetings, private calls or passing confidential information to a couple of colleagues, a phone call that takes longer than planned or you simply feel like you’re disturbing your colleague at the next desk ­– a Framery pod is exactly the right place! Another key factor is proximity: a Framery pod can be placed right in the middle of an open space office room, with short distances for the people who want to use it. When it comes to the question of why we went for Framery and not for the competition, it was the design and high quality that we appreciate. Our interior designer had shown me some sample at an exhibition room and I was convinced straight away. I also appreciate the many options of the interior layout of the Framery pods.”

Hermann also says that he has put out a kind word for us. “I have already recommended Framery to a few friends, business partners and colleagues from abroad, that are considering refurbishing their offices. I emphasized on the benefits the pods bring to work concepts that are similar to ours, and on the high quality of the pods.”
