After successfully co-designing workstations and storage units for a Seattle-based design company, Studio Other was re-engaged by the client for a new project designing their ancillary spaces, including a reception desk and boardroom tables. Armed with the task of matching the aesthetics of the open office design, Studio Other was put to the test to create a unique but affordable design that pulls inspiration from the construction of a boat hull commonly found in the Pacific Northwest. Ultimately, Studio exceeded all expectations throughout the entire codesign process, delivering the client a space that met their initial design intent and remained within budget.
A Los Angeles-based company requested a unique desk leg design that would stand out from the sea of traditional workstations. They wanted to place a greater emphasis on aesthetics and avoid the standard power beam or pinwheel design for wire management in a workstation pack. Studio Other was put to the test to create a unique but functional design that houses all electrical within a sit-stand workstation leg. The company collaborated closely with Studio Other to explore various options, eventually landing on an angled leg design that exceeded all expectations.
