Scania’s visitor centre in Södertälje has had a facelift. The visitor is given an insight into the company today, in the future and in history.
The Marcus Wallenberg Hall was initially an old workshop dating from the early 1900s. Today it houses a vehicle museum, an exhibition about the company, a café, three small conference rooms, an “arena”, a lecture hall, a lounge and a hospitality dining room.
Besides the Marcus Wallenberg Hall, Senab’s mission has encompassed Scania’s Democenter. A center for conferences, training and test driving.
Senab has previously had a relationship with Scania, involving conceptual designs for their distributors throughout the world. Senab is also responsible for implementing Scania’s New Exhibition Look. It concerns exhibition interiors, which Scania uses at trade fairs, general meetings and suchlike throughout the world.
For the hospitality dining room, Senab has produced a furnishing concept together with Scania’s project manager Johanna Zachrisson. The requirement was that it should be modern and timeless, but also durable. And above all flexible. The client wanted to be able to both expand the dining room and make if smaller at short notice in order to accommodate between 100 to 200 people.
The dining room is used just about every day, primarily for management teams and customers from all over the world. It is important that the dining room design creates a totality together with the engines, lorries and buses that are on display.
Our requirement was that it should be modern and timeless, but also durable. And above all flexible.
