On over approx. 3000 sqm. our partner PLY developed an open space concept for up to 250 employees for Collins. In addition to the design tasks, PLY also acted as planner. In the largest contract for Hamburger Interior Studios for furnishing, lighting and interior design to date, three very different sections of the building were functionally linked and visually integrated with each other. The concept creates a synthesis of almost living colour, light designs and clear functionality.
Sandblasted concrete surfaces countered by coarse-meshed carpets and open-pored timber bring warmth to the functional surroundings, ceiling-high cupboards, sideboards and shelving units from System 180 with accented colour designs offer generous storage space and zone the areas for the work teams. Niches, small gardens with Eames swings, telephone cells and various meeting rooms supplement the work areas and form a space to withdraw for various purposes.
The lighting concept was fully planned and created using LED technology. In addition to the Kandem 831 PLY workspace lighting, PLY’s first own invention; restored vintage lights converted for LEDs are used. The ambient lighting is supplied by powerful warm white LED ceiling lights.
We congratulate PLY with their successful design and wish Collins all success for the future!
