INTERIOR DESIGN / FF+E SPEC / PROCUREMENT
Spectrum Brands, a global distributor of small home appliances, approached Yellow 6 to design their new office for New Zealand branch. The main focus of the space was the showroom and the product. These two factors drove spaceplanning and texture choices.
We placed showroom in the middle and cladded it with feature wood textured panels to create a space within space effect. Custom made corner sliding doors are left open when showroom isn’t in use which adds sense of unity to the whole office. The colours and materials were kept light to provide maximum contrast with the product: white & grey paint, light wood, concrete panels and floor tiles.
Focal point off reception is the minimalistic product display consisting of four highlighted pedestals. Lighting throughout the office was meticulously designed in collaboration with Lightplan. Custom LED light channels in the corridor, set flush between wood panels to brighten up otherwise somber space, instantly became client’s favourite feature.
