Fosbury and Sons is a new co-working office space in Antwerp, Belgium. Located in the WATT-tower, close to the central station, this office space is the place for freelancers looking for an office away from home. The interior is designed by Going East, a design studio from Antwerp. The aim was to create a new and positive workspace that breaks asway from a conventional office space. There are several workareas and lounge places in Fosbury and Sons thereby creating a dynamic workspace for freelancers and companies looking for a meeting place.
The last post of my best of 2016 series is about workspaces/offices. Small or large I posted some very inspiring workspaces this year and these are my favourites.
If you’re working from home an inspiring workspace is a must! Creative director and designer Sarah Sherman Samuel used to work from her garage but after an expension of her family she thought it’s time for an office upgrade. Her office used to be a guest house that was mainly used for storage. To create this wonderful light space they ripped everything out and added skylights to give the space as much natural light as possible. The goal was to create a modern but relaxed style in her office. With light colors and an emphasis on natural materials she created an office I’m certainly jealous of!
Soludos is a shoebrand that gets inspired by local wanderings. So when it was time for a new office, they wanted a space consistent with those inspirations. Soludos asked Shelly Lynch-Sparks of Homepolish to style their new SoHo office space. The office space had to be flexible so it’s suitable for normal work, events and business meetings. But most importantly they wanted the office to make people feel as if they understand who they are and what they’re trying to do as a company. The office space really has an Mediterranean vibe. The rugs are handpicked from Marrakech and the furniture looks as if it’s handpicked from a Mediterranean flea market. The blue colors and custom made wallcoverings from Chasing Paper give the impression of being at the seaside.
Dutch fashion designers Viktor and Rolf are famous for creating items that are more art than clothing. So it comes as no surprise that their headquarters in Amsterdam is truly extraordinary. The 17th-century residence overlooks the Herengracht in Amsterdam in the so called ‘Golden Bend’ and is a former mayor’s home. The residence kept all the original features including ornate ceiling cornices, period portraits, panelling, decorative woodwork, original weaponry and parquet floors. They decorated the residence with nice classics such as the Eames DSA and DCW chairs but also with Wearable Art pieces from their own collection, that look amazing in this place.
