The new edition of Art-in-the-Office : bigger, better, brighter

Discover the project


This project, launched by the Luxembourg company Labgroup, intends to improve the aesthetics of the office environment by integrating art into « day-to-day business ».

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.

For the first edition of the Art-in-the-Office project, Labgroup, has collaborated with the Luxembourgish artist SUMO! for the creation of « design containers ». To do this, the artist created a work of art covering a Labgroup container. An exhibition allowed visitors to discover SUMO’s artworks as well as the famous custom container, auctioned during this evening.

Art-in-the-Office unites the opposing worlds of aesthetics and functionality. The objective of the first edition consisted of 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.

The Luxembourgish artist Sumo has decided to continue the challenge this year by creating a new work of art on a Labgroup container!

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

Art-in-the-Office contest

The new edition of the Art-in-the-Office contest, in collaboration with SUMO, aims at allowing amateurs or professional artists to let their imagination go free and create a work of art on such an ordinary object like a bin.


Why Move? 

To allude to : 

  • Artistic movement, which is defined as « a group of artists and artistic works with a common aesthetic »,
  • The various known artistic movements ranging from abstract art to contemporary art,
  • The movement of digital transformation, from paper to digital, passing through the destruction,
  • Daily changes and challenges giving us the opportunity to create something new, innovative, different and unique.
