    sP: Describe your project.

    Synthesis Design + Architecture: This home office for a private personal investment advisor responds to the clients brief of a discrete yet sculptural design solution for a home office by conceptually draping a dynamic surface over an orthogonal arrangement of the required home office elements including a work desk, storage units, printer, paper shredder, etc.

    The fluid geometric form is articulated as a series of alternating CNC milled birch plywood ribs which are pre-fabricated into modular units which are hung on a series of z clips bolted to the interior wall. Horizontal spacers are arranged in a pixelized graphic pattern representing the world map, where the owner (a seasoned world traveller) can map out his travels.

      This is amazing, great work! I’ve worked on a similar project but with acrylic (not near this developed) and am in love with this type of structural fluidity. Thanks for sharing
