Led by Raúl Gómez, third generation, and with a work philosophy based on innovation, professionalisation and digitalisation, Frigoríficos Marbamar understands that the greatest asset for organisations are people. That is why it believes in open spaces, which invite collaboration and coworking of its workers, and encourage closeness, one of the main values of the DNA of this company in the frozen fish and seafood sector.

"At Marbamar we knew that the process of professional and digital innovation in which we were immersed had one main objective: to improve communication, collaboration and productivity among our professionals," says Raúl Gómez.

Very fragmented and with offices that functioned as physical barriers and did not allow interdepartmental interaction, the original space has been completely redesigned to promote the circulation of air and light, transmitting spaciousness and maintaining a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere to work in.

Actiu has participated, together with its partner tecniOficina, in the integral equipment of offices distributed in open spaces with which the company wants to promote teamwork in its different areas. Open and diaphanous spaces, organised in 'professional islands' or work areas such as administration, quality, purchasing, commercial, operations, marketing or management.

Hand in hand with Raúl Gómez and his mother, an interior designer by profession, tecniOficina has actively participated in the design, contributing ideas, reaching a consensus on the configuration of the new workspaces and actively participating in more technical aspects, such as electrification. In this way, and in continuous collaboration with the factory, a project based on efficiency, sustainability and productivity was presented.

"After an initial meeting with the client, we presented our ideas, understanding that times change, companies change with them and so do offices", says Javier Pareja, from tecniOficina. In complete agreement, Raúl Gómez decided to demolish the old facilities and build them with a modern, well-structured, dynamic, agile and creative design, where priority is given to attracting and retaining talent.

This generates a constant flow of interaction between workers, which favours the building of solid personal and professional relationships, and allows for greater mobility and flexibility, boosting creativity and innovation.

"When it came to selecting the right furniture, it was clear to us that we had to contact experts in creating productive, efficient workspaces that provide well-being for workers", adds Raúl Gómez, who highlights how, among the different proposals, Actiu's was the one that best matched Marbamar's vision of innovation in management, productivity, coworking and well-being for people.

Faithful reflection of the importance of the first image, the reception area is configured with a counter from the Informa series accompanied by the Stay chair. Next to them, an area with Noom 20 modular armchairs upholstered in warm and cosy tones provide design and comfort when waiting.

With 3 transversal islands, two of them with 5 workstations and a third with 8 workstations, the operative area is equipped with facing and extension benches from the Vital Pro series. A programme of straight and pure lines, capable of providing multiple solutions to the needs of all types of work, electrified, with upholstered dividers and complemented with metal bucks, modular cupboards and Stay chairs.

Formed by a hexagonal island with 3 workstations, the marketing department, "for those who are not square", is equipped with a trapezoidal table from the Twist programme that allows for perfect cooperation and exchange of ideas. Interspersed throughout the space, the mobile and versatile Caddy 500 supports from the Agile Collection make it possible to separate zones and create ephemeral micro-architectures.

In the same open space, an area equipped with a high Tabula table and Noom 50 stools allows for more relaxed socialising. The white structures of the tables, chairs, bucks and cabinets, combined with the oak tops and the blue upholstery and mesh in the operational areas, transport the workers to the sea.

For the main meeting room, the Vital series has again been chosen, this time accompanied by Noom 50 chairs.

A Longo table with cupboard support, with a light appearance and elegant presence, accompanied by the TNK 500 executive chair and Noom 30 confidant chairs, furnish the executive office. The chrome-plated frames combined with chestnut table tops and black glass and the black leather seating provide sobriety and seriousness.

In the same office, a corner is reserved for a second, more intimate ambience, with Noom 20 armchairs and a Bend pouf with a table from the same programme.

Separated from the office by a movable partition, the management meeting room is equipped with a Longo table and Noom 20 chairs.

Conceived as a haven of disconnection where you can gather strength and rest, the office combines Tabula tables in two heights, accompanied by Noom 50 chairs and stools, with a Longo sofa with a table from the same series. The red of the sofa adds a touch of casualness and colour.

With high ceilings and exposed installations, and without architectural barriers, the offices read as a functional, modern, spacious and bright space, where the corporate colours in the decorative glass make the workers feel part of the Marbamar Project.
