Power Office by i29 and Eckhardt & Leeuwenstein

Interior architects i29 and architecture firm Eckhardt & Leeuwenstein have designed a series of boardrooms for an investment group in Amsterdam.

The designers wanted to make each board member feel as though they were under a spotlight.

The project, entitled Power Office, features oval-shaped areas of contrasting carpet and furniture to suggest pools of light cast by the dome-shaped pendant lights.

The office comprises three boardrooms and a lounge that are located in an existing 17th century building in the Gouden Bocht area of Amsterdam.

Below is some text from the designers:

The board of an investment group in capital stock, wanted to have a self-called ‘power office’. i29 l interior architects and Eckhardt&Leeuwenstein, two offices which collaborated during this project, created this by placing every board member in the spotlight on a playful way.

All three boardrooms and a lounge are executed in an overall design concept. Large round lampshades, spray painted gold on the inside, seem to cast light and shadow oval marks throughout the whole space. By this, a playful pattern of golden ovals contrasts with the angular cabinets and desks, which are executed in black stained ash wood. In the flooring the oval shaped forms continue by using light and dark grey carpet. Also, these ovals define the separate working areas.

The lounge area has, in combination with the white marble flooring these same light/shadow patterns that cover the bar and benches in silver fabrics. This area can be used for presentations or social working, with an integrated flat screen in the bar and data connections in all pieces of furniture. The existing space is set in a 17th century historic building, at one of the most famous canals of Amsterdam called ‘de gouden bocht’. All existing ornaments and details are painted white.
