The UK’s leading workplace designers, Maris Interiors looked to Karndean’s Van Gogh VGW87T Walnut for inspiration to complete its latest office fit-out for ATG Media.
A global pioneer of webcast and timed online auctions, ATG Media appointed Maris to take the lead in relocating more than 100 staff from Shaftesbury Avenue into a larger, better and more efficient space at The Harlequin Building in South Bank.
Colin Owen, design director of Maris Interiors said: “We always envisaged a contemporary warm timber look in this interior. The striking knots and linear grains of VGW87T Walnut with its variable rich chocolate and warm mid brown tones fitted our criteria perfectly.
“As we’ve already specified Karndean in a number of office fitouts, we obviously recognised its superior design capabilities as a stylish and durable alternative to real wood. It’s certainly the best representation of real wood on the market.
“It was interesting for us to take the Walnut design as our lead floor covering to zone the reception area. Ultimately, this decision allowed us to take this look one step further by fully integrating it into a statement wall feature and signage. What’s more, it helped set the theme for a warm, natural colour palette throughout.”
The finishes in this area certainly adds impact in this key area where clients and visitors get a first glimpse of the ATG Media brand.
Anne Somers, CEO of ATG Media is delighted with the finished look.
She said: “We’re so pleased with the entire office fit-out and in particular our reception area with our Karndean floor and unique feature wall. Overall, it achieves a contemporary look that successfully reflects our business and offers great facilities for our team. We’re so looking forward to working in this space.”
