After many exchanges with the clients we decided to fit out the different rooms considering the possible activities : micro meeting room, manager’s office, « sacred space », « undetermined » places… This arrangement of the rooms is reflected through the shades of colours, from the darkest to the lightest, according to the needs for concentration. Most of the undetermined spaces are arranged as work in progress, with trestles in order to enable the employees to adapt to the space before a second phase of equipping.

The desks are shaped so as to adapt to the space in which they are. The small meeting table,neither round nor square, enables the seats to converge towards the centre. A round table is integrated in the manager’s desk for more intimate meetings. The kitchen space is organised around a big table which is an hybrid between the long bar table and the small café table, which invites people to seat around according to the different circles that compose it. The plywood planks are personalised with engravings.

The bookcases were computer designed, each piece was then assembled on the spot without any tools. With the digital conception forms can be created which play on the different depth and highlights the room’s volume thus breaking the straight walls lines.

The offices’ identity is conveyed through the lightings. Hung to the ceiling, their white luminous curves are floating in the air, providing a comfortable lighting. Light is diffused by the material from below giving out a circle of light above each light. The material hides the source of light according to the angle from which it is looked at, a ghostly vision is created by the fact that the bulbs can’t be seen.
