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.
