neil DENARI: design is a fusion of form and use. as this is a new type of banking office, we have had the ambition to give a new feeling to the experience of private banking. here, the environment must be accessible and friendly, yet have a special sense of contemporary design. the two most important features to our design are first, the smooth surfaces that shape the ceiling and walls into a continuous, flowing world, and second, the contrasting materials of white plaster and two types of wood veneers. the subtle curvatures and angles of the surfaces are specially designed to help the space become embracing, while the colors and materials combine to give a fresh, warm overall feeling to the space.
