The sleek new office at the Landmark, by Italian interior design company, Stefano Tordiglione Design, sets a precedent in style. Based in Hong Kong, the design team created the interiors for the reputed Italian law firm ‘Chiomenti Studio Legale’.
It breathes new life into the perennial east-meets-west aesthetic, and reinterprets this look for the dynamic world of contemporary design. Ubiquitous linear forms accented by soft curves, are inspired by both Italian and Chinese culture, art and philosophy. A combination of glass, wood and metal create a Zen-like feel, and project a refined elegance.
The fine detailing of the office’s light oak wood furnishings, custom made by the design team, exudes an understated opulence. Sourced for its high quality, the material also has a fresh-looking pinkish tinge. Geometric patterned cabinets, stainless steel paneling and movable desk storage units – further highlight the company’s close attention to detail throughout the office.
A selection of lights procured from high-end brands like Artemide from Italy, and Flux from Sweden are also featured. These include spherical hanging pendant and recessed halo lighting. Bespoke ceiling lights in the conference rooms are conceived by the design team. Emitting a soft glow from each side, the sophisticated fixtures, appear to be floating. Contemporary Zen-inspired bookcases in the meeting rooms harmoniously fuse the elements of metal and wood. The piece is a conceptual and twenty-first-century spin on the classic Chinese bookshelf.
White and neutral tones, and the use of glass walls for rooms and at the entrance, open up the space. In contrast, dark vintage wooden flooring adds a subtle warm hue to the palette. The inviting atmosphere reflects the client’s traditional European values, professionalism and progressive mindset. Stefano Tordiglione Design’s talented group of architects and designers flex their creative muscles but also retain the reserved identity of the Italian law firm.
