If white offices are your thing, Rhetorica's got something tasty to jump start your Friday evening commute. Designed by the folks at What We Do
in Copenhagen, this white office features the visual aesthetic of small scale architecture with hip interiors inspired by communication tech.From What We Do
"The new office space was located in an old backyard workshop building with nice old-fashioned window-panes and raw visible plumbing and electric connections. The office had one big room with big blank walls that just invited us to come up with some unique wall-decorations.
Everything, including the floor and ceiling, had already been painted white so we quickly decided to keep as much as possible in white. We wanted to make a conversation corner so we painted some old-fashioned frames and filled them with 3D objects relating to communication and rhetorics. As a nice customized detail we cut out the company logo in a rug. Another detail from the conversation corner is the specially designed book-lamp made from old books and a lamp from IKEA - everything painted white ofcourse!
On the 1st floor of the office there was a room with a big wall and a small skylight window. For this wall we designed a series of flat icons - including the godess of Rhetorics who was ofcourse hanging closest to the skylight window. The flat icons stood out from the wall thanks to the skylight.
For lamps we decided to go along with the 'incandescent lightbulp clusters' trend (as designed by Muuto) just in a more CO2 neutral solution with energy-saving lightbulps instead of the beautiful but energy consuming tungsten bulps. The complex electric wiring for the lamp clusters mixed very well with the visible plumbing and electric wires in the rest of the room."
Our favorite part, however, is the attention to detail. From the little punches of green to the perfectly wall-framed tech, everything immediate jumps out at you - even the cleverly designed flat icons near the stairway area and the lamp clusters with exposed wiring - that makes for a creative space that looks to be a joy to work in.
