A corporate space shouldn’t be a synonym of a boring, lifeless space. People that spend a majority of their days holed up in companies know how important it is for their workspaces to be comfortable and pleasing. Considering this, furniture maker Florense recruited 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 created by Steyer is inspired on the stock universe, where large screens display graphs from international markets. Highlighting the scene, the black, red and white ZigZag bookshelf, designed by Steyer itself 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.
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. 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.
A natural and organic setting was created 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.
Henrique Steyer, 34 years old, is one of southern Brazil’s most active architects in the contemporary scene. He signs residential and corporate projects that have been published in over 30 countries.
