The Lawyer’s office is one of the quickest projects that we have executed where work on-site went hand in hand with the drawings on the drawing board all through the process. The idea to use metal as a support system for furniture was one of the first defining ones which carried on throughout as a design language for the office.
Wooden panels with finger-joints was picked for the horizontal surfaces to alleviate the warmth of the space yet keep it light. Furthermore, every wall available in the office had to be decked with a bookshelf to accommodate the hundreds of books on law. We created a unique pattern for the bookshelves such that the system could be tweaked and used everywhere in the office.
Every work table too was customized keeping each person’s comfort and use in mind along and beside the bookshelf. A deep blue color used sparingly on some walls in sync with furniture added a tinge of color to the workspace.
