Corporate spaces shouldn’t be synonymous to boring, lifeless public spots. People that spend a majority of their days holed up in companies know how important it is for their work-spaces to be comfortable and pleasing. Considering this, furniture maker Florense hired Brazil-based architect and designer Henrique Steyer to create five bold and creative projects that cater to many styles of corporate customers, for the release of the Lumina line.
The first setting is inspired by the stock universe, where large screens display graphs from international markets. Highlighting the scene, the black, red and white ZigZag bookshelf, was also designed by Henrique Steyer for Florense.
The second proposal is based on companies that deal in fashion, trend analysis, or even the editing room of a cool magazine. Books, magazines and mirrored globes create an ideal setting for the trendsetters.
The universe of lawyers, executives and big corporations is represented with a classier setting, with dark furniture and brickwork walls. A large painting depicts who would be the heir of a large company, in typical 19th century fashion.
The designer also created a natural and organic setting by drawing inspiration from companies that work with food or health products. Rustic and exotic vegetation spreads through the space, even in the olive colored ZigZag bookshelf, makes everything colorful and cozy. In the work desks, sheet music holders replace the traditional computers and tablets. The order of the day is teamwork, just like a fine tuned orchestra.
A stylish advertising agency was also portrayed in this super production. Here, toys such as seesaws, arcade machines and foosball tables share the space with work desks and a meeting room with artificial turf as carpeting. Once again, the ZigZag bookshelf shines, this time in shades of blue. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Henrique Steyer; Photography by Federico Cedrone]
