Brussels Airport, Thursday 7 June 2018 – Tribes Inspiring Workplaces announces today what Hero-Tribe will take up residence in the fourth Brussels location. Tribes Brussels Airport will be officially opened on 28thof June, and will be in the theme of the Inuit, a tribe from Canada and Greenland. Tribes members can be inspired by the inventive power of the Inuit, which enables them to adapt perfectly to the circumstances of their environment.
Innovative office concept Tribes offers an innovative office concept with inspiring interiors to its members. The Dutch company offers flexible workplace solutions, meeting rooms and virtual offices in all its locations. Apart from that, Tribes also offers offices custom built to its clients’ wishes. “Our members get access to a worldwide network of state of the art workplaces and meeting rooms – depending on which of our five different memberships they choose”, says Chief and Founder of Tribes, Eduard Schaepman.
Hero-Tribe Inuit Schaepman found inspiration with the 34 remaining nomadic tribes. Every Tribes site pays homage to one of these tribes, the so-called Hero-Tribe. Their traditional materials, colours and patterns are reflected in the design and the interiors. For the fourth Brussels Tribes location, this will be the Inuit. The Inuit are very inventive, and we also owe our sunglasses to the Inuit. They have designed it more than 2000 years ago, to protect their eyes from the reflections of sunlight on the snowy plains. Tribes members can be inspired by this during their work at Tribes Brussels Airport.
Expansion in Belgium The first Tribes location was opened in the Netherlands in May 2015, after which Tribes expanded very quickly with 16 locations in the Netherlands, four in Belgium, and two in Germany. The first Belgian site was officially opened on Avenue Louise in December 2015, the second in October 2017 on Avenue Marnix and the third in April 2018 on Koloniënstraat.
Modern campfire The revolutionary provider of flexible office solutions, continues to spread. ‘The demand for our inspiring flexible offices increases in Germany. The stationary office is dead’ says Schaepman. ‘The modern job market in Germany is no longer static, but flexible and requires workers to be flexible, too. But it’s in peoples’ nature to want to meet each other and exchange opinions. For this, they need a place to meet, to exchange ideas and tell stories. That’s what I wanted to create with Tribes: a modern campfire; a checkpoint on their wanderings, where business nomads can meet. No matter where in the world they may be’.
CEO in Campaign Every Tribes location has its own campaign image, showing a modern business nomad in the skin of a real tribes-man. Schaepman is the very first CEO around the world who poses himself for the campaign images. For the newest Tribes location at Brussels Airport, Schaepman poses as a Inuit.
