A Scandi inspired, calm and clutter free space was the brief for this home office in Dubai.
The client wanted one desk surface for 2-3 people to work around and effective storage cabinets to conceal printers, routers, filing etc. We settled on a layout with a custom made solid oak table positioned through the centre of the space.
A custom designed storage unit runs the entire width of the room and had to accommodate not only a printer and files but also work around the existing air conditioning unit located high on that wall. This played a part in the final height of the cabinetry.
We wanted to improve the lighting in the space so I suggested three 'Bell' pendants positioned down the length of the table and aligned with the existing windows, not only adding a statement but also providing task lighting. We then installed contemporary black track lighting at each end of the space to provide light into the cabinetry, onto art and for general ambience.
The large custom made desk/table has concealed wiring underneath it, which is then hidden from view as it makes its way to the wall by a beautiful handmade 'Armadillo' rug crafted from recycled PET fibre.
The client didn't want typical office chairs but rather a comfortable meeting/dining style of chair. We decided on the 'Bo Concept' Adelaide chair with a leather seat to bring some extra warmth and colour to the space.
Accessories were then chosen for their sculptural aesthetic which the '101 CPH' range matched perfectly.
The client could not be happier with this space and they both now look forward to going to work each day. Scroll to bottom to see some before photos of the space.
from the client....
"We are in love with our new office thanks to Suzy, she listened carefully to what we wanted and created a place that feels peaceful, welcoming, relaxed……..and inviting to work in!
The space has a great co-working atmosphere and the material palette of wood, leather and steel gives it a balanced feeling.
Suzy is very talented and translated our 'wish list' into a very beautiful and workable space. We really appreciated her eye for detail and would wholeheartedly recommend her."
