United House, Notting Hill: the latest offering from The Office Group
TOG’s Head of Design Nasim Köerting tells Mix about the 40th space from the flexible workspace providers.
Since the turn of the century the office has evolved in its various iterations bending one way and the next. Most think that collaboration is here to stay – come and be inspired.
With offices in 21 locations around the world, IA Interior Architects is the first global architecture firm focused exclusively on interiors. For Mix Design Collective, IA will take on the COLLABORATE experience.
“Through furniture we can explore the idea that there is no background or foreground in collaboration – the aim is to complete a task and achieve a goal through systematic approach. We can create an expression of collaboration through moments of unity and connection to complete a task or achieve a goal.’”
It was more of a challenge than inspiration, everything started with a question: “What is collaboration in a room with no words?” Mix Design Collective gives us an opportunity to experiment with our work, and to work with different companies on something exciting.
We design for people and as designers, we should never forget this. Understanding people’s needs gives them the opportunity to have a better experience. Collaboration is a way of understanding your work and the relationship you have with your team. Design can show us how to do it – and how every element, from the biggest to the smallest, need to be respected and taken in consideration.
