Jackdaw completes interior design for design studio Idean

Jackdaw has completed the interior design for a new ‘café style’ office and event space for design studio Idean, who regularly hosts workshops and events for its global clientele.

30/09/2019 1 min read

Jackdaw was challenged with the creation of a flexible and social event space that fosters connection and interaction, focusing on Idean’s company culture, advocating the importance of sharing, eating and learning together. 

Materials and colours were key to the design of the free-flowing café concept office, utilising materials and integrating colour zoning to create a connected and holistically conceptual interior for the 350 sq m Shoreditch office.

Jackdaw designed an informal communal kitchen, dining and meeting area, including bar seating, banquettes and natural workbench tables and benches. The boardroom and smaller meeting rooms are incorporated into the spatial design, subdivided with mobile partitions and Crittal glazing.

Products by Deadgood, Punt, Hay and Harto were used throughout the design, alongside bespoke designs created by Jackdaw. The result is an intelligent layout combining a versatile coworking office environment and café style social event space with a vibrant and colourful interior design concept that distinctly steps away from a typical office aesthetic for this growing digital agency.

James Haycock, Idean’s General Manager, commented: ‘When we set out to design our new studio space, we were keen to find someone that worked in a collaborative way as we were keen to create something that worked really well for our team. They did an amazing job in understanding how we worked and what we needed from the space and then were great at continuing to share and iterate based on further feedback. The result is a space with great personality and an impact that the team and our clients love.’
