Julius Meinl Office and Training Facility, 2013 Julius Meinl, a Viennese coffee processor and retailer, traces its roots back over a century to a colonial dry goods store. We did a start-to-finish design overhaul of the firm’s Moscow headquarters to honor its storied past by incorporating historic design elements. We extensively utilized red velvet to bring to mind the stately elegance of Viennese opera houses, where coffee bars were a beloved institution.  We left the Soviet era ceiling exposed, incorporated old steel lockers, and utilized antique French factory table legs to invoke the firm’s industrial past. Finally, in the training center itself, we used the coffee bar design from Julius Meinl’s original dry goods store in Viena and accented the space with items commonly found in coffee bars 100 years ago: Austrian vintage lamps from Kalmar, chairs from Thonet & Breuer and Art Deco wallpapers.

Rambler-Afisha Headquarters, Moscow, 2012 Rambler-Afisha is a media holding company based in Moscow. In collaboration with Dmitri Ovcharov and Boris Voskoboynikov we implemented a redesign of their unique corporate space. The structure’s high open spaces, red brick walls, symmetrical rows of oversized windows and visible structural elements created unique design challenges and opportunities. In this space, reminiscent of a 19th century Industrial Revolution era workshop, we introduced design elements that would create eye catching and thought provoking contrasts. The disparate esthetics of authentic herringbone parquet, a revolving antique hotel door sourced in London, and over 250 pieces of European vintage furniture playfully combined with colorful glass partitions and whimsical scale manipulations created an unconventional and mysterious atmosphere in the space.

Christie's gallery and office fit out, 2014 The fit out includes a stunning pair of Stephane Jasinski armchairs with a very royal and elegant appearance. Jasinski got the licenses for Belgium and Luxembourg to produce all the modernist furniture for Thonet. He produced Breuer, Corbusier, Aalto and many others. These chairs are upon now not found in any literature, but they are clean cut modernist beauties from their ateliers. One of a kind!
