We don’t know how Heineken became one of the world’s largest brewery groups in the past 150 years. But we do know the role played by Klöber in the fully upgraded offices at their administrative headquarters: The design features of Duera accentuate the atmosphere in the building, which is characterised by full-height glazing, light and transparency. And we know what role Klöber plays in Heineken’s health management.


Heineken’s Facility Management had been recording health complaints from employees that were caused by the furniture they used. Until they bought the Klöber Duera chairs this was happening four or five times a month. When they bought the Duera XS-XL NPR task chairs, this figure was reduced to four or five times a year.
