Working closely with a small team and the directors Judith Haase and Pierre Jorge, we developed a visual narrative of layout, finishes, furniture and lighting for the office. The material properties - reflection, and opacity - of abstract forms interracting with artificial lighting defines a sense of disorientation and immersion into a world of story telling. Different chapters of the story were assigned thematically to each floor.
My role included developing designs from concept level to details as well as material specification working with the office's material sample library.The project was modelled in response to a fast turnover of client meetings and in house discussions.
