ICA Gruppen is one of Scandinavia’s leading retailers with 2300 shops in five countries. Its businesses include primarily supermarkets, ICA Bank and ICA Fastigheter (Real Estate).
In 2005 ICA hired TEA to plan its new headquarters in Solna Business Park, north of Stockhom, at the time a new business and trade district. TEA’s mission was to give the new office, that would accommodate 600 employees, a clear ICA identity as well as design workspace modules and other furnishings.
Ideas for a dynamic office came from ICA’s own reality – the retail world. TEA took inspiration for shapes, colours and elements for the rooms from ICA’s own shops. The result was a colourful and surprising office environment featuring over-dimensioned interior design details.
ICA has continued to entrust TEA, and TEA has incrementally adapted the interior design of the headquarters that now have 1 000 workspaces. TEA has simultaneously updated several ICA offices around Sweden.
