Swiss Re Bengaluru is the Indian branch of the world-leading Swiss reinsurance company. In operation for almost 20 years, this is the third largest office of the company with more than 1,000 employees, as well as one of its three global Business Solutions Centres.

Openness and transparency are cornerstones of this group of companies founded back in 1863. These values are also reflected in the interior and ceiling design of its subsidiary in Bengaluru.

During the renovation of the office designed by DSP Design Associates, a visually appealing ceiling solution was sourced from durlum.

The renovation saw the creation of stylish encounter areas for employees and clients in the office’s spacious and extensive foyer and leisure area. Highlighted by LOOP, an apparently seamless metal ceiling from durlum, the different areas such as reception, cafeteria and seating corners invite people to spend an unhurried moment and exchange views.

Characterised by its round apertures, this design ceiling skilfully blends into its interior setting in perfect harmony with the interior decor and the numerous wooden elements, creating an atmosphere that is modern and pleasant at the same time.

Completed in August 2018, the Swiss Re Bengaluru office renovation incorporates durlum’s LOOP TYP 2 metal ceiling featuring 2mm thick aluminium in 966 x 1115 mm module size, powdercoated in silver, and covering an area of 1420 square metres.
