    interior design office
office 00
The board of aninvestment group in capital stock, wanted to have a self-called ‘power office’.i29 l interior architects and Eckhardt&Leeuwenstein, two offices whichcollaborated during this project, created this by placing every board member inthe spotlight on a playful way. All three boardrooms and a lounge are executedin an overall design concept. Large round lampshades, spray painted gold on theinside, seem to cast light and shadow oval marks throughout the whole space. Bythis, a playful pattern of golden ovals contrasts with the angular cabinets anddesks, which are executed in black stained ash wood. In the flooring the ovalshaped forms continue by using light and dark grey carpet. Also, these ovalsdefine the separate working areas.
The lounge area has, incombination with the white marble flooring these same light/shadow patternsthat cover the bar and benches in silver fabrics. This area can be used forpresentations or social working, with an integrated flat screen in the bar anddata connections in all pieces of furniture. The existing space is set in a 17 thcentury historic building, at one of the most famous canals of Amsterdam called‘de gouden bocht’. All existing ornaments and details are painted white.
The keynotes for this company are money andpower. The design concept expresses this by setting all members of the boardliterally in the spotlights.
