Boardroom Herengracht BY i29 interior architects, eckhardt & leeuwenstein
This office is called "POWER OFFICE". Experiencing and expressing the elegance of an office conditions give a new idea of an office boardroom. Let's us enjoy it more...
"The board of an investment group in capital stock, wanted to have a self-called 'power office'. i29 interior architects and Eckhardt & Leeuwenstein, two offices who collaborated during this project, created this by placing every board member in the spotlight in a playful way. All three boardrooms and a lounge are executed in an overall design concept. Large round lampshades, spray painted gold on the inside, seem to cast light and shadow oval marks throughout the whole space. By this, a playful pattern of golden ovals contrasts with the angular cabinets and desks, which are executed in black stained ash wood. In the flooring the oval shaped forms continue by using light and dark grey carpet. Also, these ovals define the separate working areas. The lounge area has, in combination with the white marble flooring, these same light/shadow patterns that cover the bar and benches in silver fabrics."
