Inkjet leader Durst opens its futuristic new HQ

May 2019

In early April, Durst - a global leader in the production of inkjet printing systems - opened its new headquarters in Brixen, Italy.  This futuristic building boldly represents the group’s evolution.  The building’s iconic design has a flat, floating wing structure with a 35 metre, six-storey, concrete tower and a metal powder-coated façade, where 850 multi-coloured LED-illuminated windows are arranged in a pixel-like fashion reminiscent of the world of photography and digital printing,

The stunning building took almost two years to complete and was designed by architects Patrik Pedò and Juri Pobitzer from the Bolzano-based practice Monovolume.  The architects integrated the new wing with the existing headquarters and production facility while, at the same time, creating a powerful connection between past and future.

“This is a very proud day in the long history of Durst,” stated Christoph Gamper at the opening ceremony.  “We do not fear the future.  We are here to shape the future.  We have the best employees, the best customers and the best technology.  Driven by the mantra of innovation, we offer complete solutions from pixel to output, without forgetting that the aim is to focus not just on machines but also on the people behind them.”

The new building itself, which occupies 5,700 square metres of a total 28,000 sq. metre site, reflects Durst’s strong focus on the well-being of its employees.  The building hosts executive, commercial and technical offices combining comfort and hi-tech features.  A large window looks out onto a 2,800 sq. metre raised garden for use by employees and customers; there are various well-equipped relaxation areas, including a large cafeteria at the entrance, as well as spaces for a professional baby-sitting service.

The building also features a modern conference hall and the prestigious Customer Experience Center.  In this enormous showroom, customers from all over the world can try out the entire range of Durst solutions, high-performance digital printing systems for sectors spanning visual communication, ceramics, packaging and textiles.
