Hunters provided a loose furniture package for the client’s relocation from the West End to a new office space in Spitalfields.
The client wanted their new workspace to be completely agile that offered the same variety of working modes as their old office. The space itself was underground, which gave us some interesting challenges as well as some great opportunities to play on the industrial aestehtic.
Very little natural light entered the area, so a sweeping spiral stairwell was punched into the space from the group floor above that not only looked spectacular but flooded the space with light.
Given this space, our main task was to find furniture options that fitted with the industrial design scheme and provided the levels of multi-functionality that the office’s occupants would need. We used a lot of smaller pieces, cube seats and modular sofa systems, that offered flexibility. Some significant architectural work was still ongoing by the time our project began. We had to coordinate our efforts closely with other contractors to ensure that the installation was completed on time without any unforeseen costs.
The centerpiece of this workspace is undoubtedly the auditorium. Here we used elements from the Grid system supplied by Icons of Denmark that allow changes in configuration to support different work environments. Allied to this design, we incorporated ID chairs from Vitra, some pieces from Buzzy Space and many bespoke items.
Perhaps our proudest achievement was the bespoke table we created from reclaimed metal woodboards on lockable castors. This typified our approach, combining invention with mobility to produce a piece that married utility with urban chic.
