Profil

Profil is a deep and narrow alcove that used to be a storage area for cleaning materials. It is designed as desk space for three people sitting side by side looking out through a window.
The five and a half meter long guillotine window disappears into the ceiling connecting the office desk to the courtyard and the exhibition space beyond. All around, shelving, drawers, and counter space complete the envelope.

Milieu

Milieu is about the enjoyment of lingering between aisles of bookcases flipping through books. In fact, the whole installation operates in a similar way with the bookcases sliding sideways to reveal ever more books.
The custom designed and manufactured movable bookcases with a height of 2.5 meters and a weight of half a ton, provide 90 linear meters of shelving in an area of just 9m².

Enface

Enface is a room within a room where the two directors share the same desktop.Sitting opposite each other stimulates the dialogue.
