Today we proudly showcase the formidably inventive Innocean corporate headquarters in Frankfort, a creation by Ippolito Fleitz Group.
Innocean is an internationally operating advertising agency, formerly headquartered in Korea, moving into new European headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.
A thoroughly modern and dynamic work space was crafted for the young, design-conscious company, defining the different work zones within the agency.
Dynamism and movement are key components of the design, which engages employees and visitors the second they enter the spacious reception hall.
These design elements guide you
through the open work zones and the specially designed employee library on up to the in-house gym on the fifth floor, which flaunts an amazing view over Frankfurt.
Polygonal spatial elements and a wide range of materials reflect the high design standards of the agency itself. The presence of open and transparent work areas, paired with semi-public and completely discrete conference zones, promotes a creative and communicative working atmosphere.

As seen on our top image, the welcoming area floats a stream of white spheres over a minimalist, almost whimsical space featuring dramatically carved wood desk and a series of swings and wood blocks.
The brightly lit entrance stands natural wood in sharp contrast with dark tiled flooring and exposed concrete columns, below the clouds of white spheres.
Polygonal constructions abound in the office, seen here functioning as the framing shell to a conversational space. Minimalist, high contrast philosophy informs the design, pairing black leather cushions with white geometric structures, plus bold orange accents.
Here we have a closer view of the trio of “egg” chairs with orange leather seating. Full height glass surrounds the space, lending natural light and an expansive, minimalist feeling.
The polygonal shapes add a magnitude of visual interest to the stark, minimalist spaces. At right we see a sharp black wall shelving unit, contrasting with the bright tones.
Here we see a large, open conference room with lengthy black and metal textured table standing beneath an oval ceiling detail, mirrored on the carpet design. Again, floor to ceiling glass panels wrap the space, here seen with curtains for privacy and shade.
Throughout the office, bare concrete pairs with stark white and black tones, for a muted look. Large swaths of glass allow for an open, breathable look.
The ceiling here is carefully crafted with a gentle undulation, contrasting an organic shape with the severe straight lines found throughout.
Glancing down the row of office spaces separated by floor to ceiling glass, one can appreciate the open nature of this design, lending the discrete spaces a sense of continuity. Sleek white and metal desks emphasize the brightness.
The office contains this futuristic capsule-like lounge, offering a secluded and peaceful space for conversation and contemplation, housed within a larger open area.
Inside of the lounge is wrapped in lime green leather cushioning, for a light burst of color upon entering the space.
One of many discrete conference zones, this astroturf-like space contrasts the bright green floor hue with white and grey surroundings.
Beneath large circle lighting cutouts in the ceiling, we see another trio of orange-cushion egg chairs on the putting green-like carpeting.
From a wide angle, we see the brightly colored discrete conference space nestled between two expanses of neutral toned office, for a burst of color in the building.
This expansive conference space showcases large form versions of the polygonal structures, in natural wood tones here. These geometric shapes break from the standard right angled form of an office, providing a unique yet sharply industrial creative element.
Close view of the white spheres floating over the entryway, each suspended on a single cable from the ceiling.
Finally, we leave you with one of the singular offices, housing a minimalist natural wood desk over grey carpeting, with the undulating ceiling above and full height exterior glass to the right.
