What we did
Taking the lead from Abstract’s Project Director, our Design Team began by conducting some research about Italy, looking at famous masterpieces, significant colours and the Italian lifestyle. We created a majestic feature wall by applying graphics of ‘The Birth of Venus’ painting by Botticelli within a frame, to set the scene on entering the reception area. We added a large marble sculpture of the iconic statue of ‘David’ by Michelangelo and even a Piaggio Tuk Tuk as the coffee point, which both encapsulated the distinctive Italian feel.
Office Profile provided 8 bespoke Vespa scooter seats in various pastel shades to add an element of fun, with white touch-down rectangular tables and Spin Stools. To ensure that the space could be used flexibly, we created different zones using a number of products such as acoustic meeting booths with tables, a Vieni rocking chair, Vieni Easy chairs, high Spin Stools and a Uni coffee table. The space was completed by adding several olive trees and a stunning yellow SMEG Fiat500 refrigerator.
