Client: Capital International
Project: London Offices
Architect/Interior Designer: Gensler & Associates
At Capital International’s new London offices, the concept was light, flexible working space with floating glass walls, minimalist décor and clean, structural lines. Our brief was to design and manufacture furniture for boardrooms, meeting rooms, dining rooms and touchdown areas. Echoing the architect’s plans, we created tables in cool, clean maple accompanied by chairs in gleaming steel and soft black leather. The walls of each room – straight, curved, circular – are reflected in the shape of each table top while the dark leather chairs anchor the furniture in an otherwise weightless environment.
A crucial part of the furniture design was to ensure that all cabling could be both incorporated and concealed from view and our early involvement made cable management considerably more straightforward than anticipated.
