Helsinki, Finland


"This is a people business. The environment you work in has a big impact on how you perform and enjoy your time at work.” - Antti Mäki, COO, GroupM Finland

Starting point

The world’s leading media agency, GroupM, sees investing in the wellbeing of their staff as a key factor in gaining a competitive edge. Due to rapid growth, GroupM’s Finnish branch had a great deal of new people joining in, making the office a tight fit for everyone. The infamous afternoon slump was known to hit the office after lunch and around 4pm. “It felt like we had used up all the air in the office by then,” described Antti Mäki.


In a space where windows cannot be opened due to ventilation, Naavas brought in a much needed breath of fresh air and oxygen. A large, two-sided Naava Duo entity was brought into the space, dividing the workspace and creating an area to relax and brainstorm in among the green. Guests are now welcomed in by a striking entity of two Naava Ones, and another Naava One takes care of the quality of air in a conference room where profitable ideas are brought to life.
