Hunters won the tender to deliver their full furniture package across 100,00 sq ft of the iconic building 20 Fenchurch Street, London.
Working with Edge Architects we specified the furniture package, which comprised of over 20 manufacturers, to accommodate 872 people across two floors.
The design of the building at 20 Fenchurch Street is known for its structural vibrations and so it was critical that a very strong desking system was selected. Working in partnership with Knoll we selected and procured the Knoll Plateau system. This high-end desking range was upgraded from a MFC to a veneer finish, giving the office spaces a premium character.
Brunner Fina conference chairs were placed in the executive and boardroom areas alongside pieces from B&B Italia. The main reception area incorporated furniture from Tom Dixon and B&B Italia.
The overall design scheme, created by Edge Architects, delivered a very opulent outcome; through the use of strong textures and finishes, bringing together brass and copper with deep woods like walnut and valour fabric.
Access to 20 Fenchurch Street is strictly controlled and managed. Using our logistical expertise we focused our schedule around their process and parameters to schedule a perfect delivery and installation.
The end results looks fantastic, this high-end project produced something truly different.
Due to the planning and logistics invested in the project the furniture was delivered and installation seamlessly. Markel are extremely happy with the outcome, and we continue to support them as their key furniture provider.
