Art. Light. Colour.
To make the internal generational change of a long-standing law firm we have been assisting visible to the outside world, it was time for a spatial makeover. Approximately 10 years ago, we already completed the full interior design project for the law firm near Offenbacher Marktplatz. In close collaboration with the client, we asked ourselves how we could best integrate the private art collection into the premises. Our interior concept uses the existing artworks as an integral part of the re-design - the entire color scheme is derived from the art collection. Art and color form a symbiotic connection in this project.
The law firm's art collection, with a focus on Modern Art", was already accessible to the public as a participating company in the "Kunstprivat!" initiative. By presenting the artworks at new placements and using light and color schemes, each room was given its own unique appearance, and an optical separation of different office areas was achieved.
The office space gained a sense of spaciousness through several changes in the rooms layouts. The new counter is now situated in the rear part of the reception area and blends in with the overall color scheme, adding depth to the space. Instead of the previous counter, there is now an impressive multi-colored art object that also serves as a statement piece of furniture, inviting people to sit. The glass partition that previously separated the waiting and reception area from the entrance has been replaced with a textile partition in the form of a floor-to-ceiling curtain. The advantage over the previous partition is not only the visual opening of the space but also the ability to transform the waiting area into a more discreet reception area by simply closing the curtain when needed, without disrupting the normal workflow.
