Known for its exceptional Swiss quality, Ricola exports its specialist herb products to more than 50 countries around the world. Ricola herb drops are famous for soothing relief of cold symptoms.
The Ricola brand was created by confectionery business Richterich & Compagnie in 1930. To help guests appreciate the long history and strong culture of the brand, Exhibitus designed its U.S. reception area and conference rooms to pay homage to the fresh, clean feel of a scene from the Swiss Alps. A blank divider wall became a beautiful reminder of the company’s heritage.
An alphorn, used by mountain dwellers as a form of communication, is carved from solid piece of softwood and gives the pure natural harmony of an open pipe. One is featured in media advertisements for Ricola cough drops. An actual alphorn is featured in the lobby display, placed at a level where no aspiring horn player can reach the mouth piece.
In the main conference room, a time line detailing the Company’s rich history can be easily observed by customers and other guests. Given that all Ricola products are made from the same eight herbs, conference rooms are each named for one of these important ingredients.
