Martela, a Finnish company engaged in public and office interior design sphere since 1950s, entered the Russian market about 20 years ago. For a start it promoted its products via Moscow distributors, but with time matured to open an official representative office. Searching for the right space was quite time- and effort-consuming, as the company was unwilling to confine itself to a common office. It wanted to open a full-fledged showroom, where clients, architects and designers would come to see the brand’s products with their own eyes.

A modern newly-built business centre proved to be ideal at all points: made from glass instead of dead walls, it is always sunlit and allows a spectacular city view from a spacious terrace. As the company is well-experienced in office interiors, there was no problem to combine a work zone with a showroom. Martela even helped its foreign clients to pioneer on the Russian market by means of providing temporary work zones in the new office.

Interior design was entrusted to the company’s staff architect and a professional artist. The latter spent 40 days painting the wall in the conference room. His masterpiece features symbolical cultural and architectural sightseeing attractions of Helsinki and Moscow.
