For the restoration of this period Art Deco building in London’s Fitzrovia, we were asked to create leatherwork that would act to soften the geometric elements used in its double-height reception area. The finished building provides contemporary office space set out over seven floors.
Working with the architect and a specialist joinery firm, we created an L-shaped banquette upholstered in a warm tan leather that would complement the timber-clad desk and walls – both constructed from vertical oak batons. A characterful tight fluted detailing was employed for the upholstery, which draws on 1930’s Art Deco design influences.
