According to Interior Design Report Afam News, Workspace Bulgaria`s is an international company for office furnishings, which seeks out innovative and unconventional ways to represent its products in the best possible way. one of the requirements has been to submit a design according to reuse and recycle trends. following this concept, DA architects has defined a space with an emphasized industrial character — polished concrete floor, visible installations and used shipping containers — as a focus of the common space.
The two shipping containers divide the functional areas of the showroom and are used for display area at the same time. in order to dynamize the space, bulgarian design studio DA architects has cut in half one of the containers, situated in different areas of the showroom and the other container is raised in the air, over the chair exhibition plywood podium. one of its long side walls is removed to create space for a bar and recreational area.
The sloped plywood podium allows the chairs to be arranged in height and by that way to be exposed to every viewing spot. this wooden element continues up vertically and surrounds the reception area dynamically, ‘guiding’ the customer from the entrance to the manager area in the very end of the showroom. outside the shipping containers and the plywood podium, the entire space is designed with minimal use of materials — concrete floor, white walls, ceiling and installations. this design, in combination with the shipping containers, creates a simple and industrial look that emphasizes the sophisticated mode and the precise detail of the presented furniture.
