ACE is one of Europe’s leading insurance
companies with offices across the world. ACE
chose us to provide a loose furniture package
for their London office and was so pleased
with the result that we were asked to work
on a similar refresh of their Paris office. The
brief was to provide modern, professional
solutions for flexible meeting spaces and
Right from the start, this project promised
to be a challenging one. Not only did the
installation have to be done out-of-hours – as
the office would be occupied for the duration

There was a need from the client for a
meeting solution that included power, data
and conference call capabilities so

We added value not only by advising on
and sourcing the perfect furniture package,
but also by utilising our relationships with
international partners so a Day2 service can
be provided locally, as well as through the
UK, whenever the client needs it.
