Spatial Identity and Refurnishing for IT Company
The danish IT company Platon resides in Mercedes Benz's former danish headquarter. Platon asked us to come up with a proposal for new interiors for meeting rooms and lounge area.
• 23 meter long relief
• Inspiration room with whitebard table
• Auditorium with floor to ceiling backlit photo murals
• Custom designed AV Furniture
• Identity graphics
Study the presentation boards
The solution is centered around the Four Cast chair series from Four Design. The trademark of the series is a triangular fold in the back of all the chairs.
We took the triangular shape from the chairs and used it for the spatial identity - f.ex. in the choice of lamps, in the shaping of the AV-furniture and in the design of the decorations for the glasswalls in the meeting rooms.
Platon is the greek name of the philosopher Plato. We interpreted Platos ideas and the philosphy of the company and incorporated it in a custom made relief, a wallpainting, and a bookcase shaped as a speach bubble.
The general selection of colours was of course aligned with the identity of the companys marketing materials.
See detailed descriptions below the pictures at the bottom.
The presentation was made on 8 boards size A3 with pictures of the chosen furniture, selected views and floor plans.
