Labgroup, with the support of ALD automotive, have launched a new initiative, Art-In-The-Office.

Art-In-The-Office intends to improve the aesthetics of the office environment by integrating art into “day-to-day business”, with a vernissage being organised on 16 June 2016 at the Arizona Lounge in Contern.

Labgroup, expert in the preservation of documents and data for forty years, offers a wide range of dedicated services, covering the entire document lifecycle, whether electronic or paper. Among other services, Labgroup offers an assured destruction service constituting the perfect response for companies seeking to ensure both security and data privacy compliance of discarded documents.

Art-In-The-Office unites the opposing worlds of aesthetics and functionality. The objective consists in improving Labgroup containers’ appearance, thereby providing containers which are both secured and visually attractive. Labgroup’s sealed containers are supplied to the client’s premises in order to ensure the full confidentiality of discarded documents. These document containers are regularly emptied and replaced by Labgroup and their content is securely destroyed.

As a nonprofit initiative, all proceeds will be granted to projects supporting the art sector in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

For this first edition, Labgroup has called upon the Luxembourg artist SUMO! for the creation of its “design containers”. The artist has created a brand new artwork covering a Labgroup container. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover SUMO’s artworks, including the customised Labgroup container, during an exhibition to be organised at the beginning of June (open from 3 June). They will moreover be able to acquire it at a dedicated auction organised on 16 June 2016. Fifty models reproducing the artwork originally designed by the artist on a Labgroup container will be on offer. The original container will be the only copy featuring SUMO’s signature. The fifty reproductions will be gradually removed after a period of 18 months.

During the opening ceremony, the participants will have the opportunity to discover the projects developed by the Lycée des Arts et Métiers students in a friendly and festive atmosphere. During the event, the Arizona Lounge in Contern will host the work of the Luxembourg artist SUMO. During this event, the jury of the Art-In-The-Office competition will select the winner.
