Authors’ Comment

The overall feeling of the Globalworth headquarters was inspired by the Art Deco movement, an influential design style that characterized the most iconic American office buildings. The organizational chart of the company required a space with an open flow, but also a number of enclosed, more private areas. This aspect in particular lead to a partitioning made with discontinuous walls, like diaphragms, which direct the viewers attention and accentuate perspectives by working with different angles. Using the walls at different angles has optimally settled spatially the current floor, taking into account the non-perpendicular facades. As an additional role, the walls create a display surface for an impressive collection of contemporary art. The selected furniture and lamps are specific for the Art Deco style, as well as the wood panelling and lighting objects that reinterpret the motif of the stained glass. The concrete-looking plaster that cover the walls, the double glass partitions that resemble industrial windows and the corian reception desk bring a modern feeling to the space and create an elegant architectural blend.
