Adette Brotz. office. July 26th , 2017.
This is the Skype office from Stockholm, Sweden. It’s located in Munchen brewery and it was a project developed by pS Arkitektur. The office was designed to be used by 100 employees who are focusing on the development of audio and video for the Skype application. The design of the building reflects the company’s philosophy which focuses on functionality but also on the creative part and the fun and attractive side of the design. The architects came up with a playful design for this new office. It’s a space that emphasizes the aspects related to interaction and socialization. The actual working areas are not less playful and fun than the other spaces and this way a feeling of continuity is created. For the interior, the designers used colorful furniture with rounded designs and friendly and fun shapes. Ball-shaped lighting fixture can be seen throughout the office. They are a representation of the company’s logo, the cloud.
This office focuses on the development of audio and video platforms and the custom-made wallpaper reflects this aspect beautifully. They feature images representing headsets or cables and, in the recreational spaces, they feature images of trees. The color palette is very diverse. In fact, each room has its own graphical décor and features a selection of colors and patterns. Given the purpose it was designed for, the office offers excellent acoustic quality and includes a large number of sound-proofed walls.
The desk is made of walnut, which gives it an incredible colour and makes it part of your room furniture in a very elegant way, making the room look more like a living room than an office. The warm brown of the wood is very nicely emphasized and the four leaning legs support the weight perfectly. The laptop work station is expendable, so you can draw it out when working and push it back when you want to have a break and this action is done smoothly thanks to the neat system on the side. The two drawers below are great for storing anything you might need to and also the desk top is perfect for displaying the items you need more like a desk lamp , an organizer or maybe a clock. This amazing piece of furniture is called Astrid – a girl’s name – and it is manufactured by Vermont Wood Studios.
You don’t therefore I’m going to show you by comparison an office renovation with before and after shots, and then see for yourself at what point is your own.So, before renovation the desk didn’t really fit with the interior but it was functional and did its job. The chair also didn’t belong there and judging by its position it wasn’t comfortable either providing a wrong desk position for the body. All the files and office tools were spread around the desk with absolutely no aesthetical sense.
