Inspired by Karndean’s strong brand, OEG interiors were tasked with designing a contemporary break out area that would entice staff away from their desk at lunch time whilst, at the same time as doubling up as an engaging meeting space.
Tapping into the modern industrial trend, Karndean opted for an exposed ceiling and feature lighting pendants with bespoke finishes.
"Karndean’s stunning Art Select Canberra Slate and Morning Oak Parquet complemented the large open-plan space perfectly, with clever zoning introduced to distinguish areas and guide visitors around seating areas," commented Lucy Martin, design manager at OEG interiors.
Uniquely, the space features a one of a kind concrete ping pong table inspired by the well-known James Du Wulf ping pong and dining table, which has been designed to also operate as a conference table.
She continued: "We were able to incorporate Karndean’s statement brand red in the form of diamond shaped artwork panels and Ocee soft seating.
"The chic Mereway Kitchen was positioned at the front of the space, whereas the lounge needed to be furthest away from the interactive ping pong table. The paper lanterns featured throughout were designed to create a softer and more relaxed ambience."
John Wright, operations director of Karndean Designflooring, said: "We were immediately impressed with the finished space. The concept was to deliver a break out area that would feel very different from our office environment, so we can encourage our employees to get away from their desk and have a well-deserved break, and OEG has met this requirement perfectly."
