Explore our new office design

Our sites and offices around the world are essential to bring our Henkel brand to life.

Our sites and offices around the world are essential to bring our Henkel brand to life. The smartwork@office workspace guideline defines the Henkel office look&feel and activity based working approach. All new office- projects (leased and owned) and new fit-outs of existing premises must comply with this standard. 



The Henkel smartwork@office concept

The new smartwork@office concept consists of four individual focus areas which combine functionality as well as the latest office environment look&feel into one holistic. Smartwork@office focuses on the aspects of creating a place of belonging, supporting business innovation, foster employee wellbeing as well as reducing the environmental footprint.



Look & feel

The smartwork@office look&feel design is aiming to visualizes our long-term business model and showcase Henkel's position on sustainability. 



Dos and Dont's

There is no smartwork@office unless a touch of red color is present, ideally in little small details like furniture accessories, visuals and logos. Exception are the community spaces – they can be emphasized with a higher proportion of red.




Different fabrics or structures on wallpapers can have a huge impact especially on the “feel” of look&feel. A subtle way to drive well-being in office environments.




Carpets are one main element to bring warmness and identity to our spaces. Avoid gray colors and try to choose cozy beige light tones

On-floor carpets, attached-floor carpets, its preferred to have red-beige earth tones. Design can vary, from calm look to monochromatic or local patterns.



Wall decorations

Walls are free spaces to express Henkel’s and business´s identity:

  • Bold visuals
  • Project’s samples
  • Green walls
  • and more…

Creative ideas that enrich our workspace with sustainable, friendly, symbolic, minimalistic atmosphere.
