Inside Design Studio Ippolito Fleitz, Stuttgart

Published by on Sep 18th, 2012, No Comments

Take a look at the offices of design studio, Ippolito Fleitz based in Stuttgart, Germany.

Built on the premesis of an old factory, the new office space was designed to reflect their brand of being ‘identity architects’ and is meant to be a ‘quasi signature trademark for clients and studio staff alike.’

The predominantly white and bright office interior of the studio is a stark contrast to the building’s exterior. The fresh white walls and various pieces of black furniture are off-set by pops of colour in plants, books, carpets and other office accessories.

The use of unique light fixtures and wall and roof graphics give the office its own unique character and style.

Inside Instant Grass, Cape Town

Published by on Jul 26th, 2012, No Comments

Instant Grass is a youth marketing, insights and word of mouth agency based in Cape Town, South Africa. When they moved into their new offices at The Foundry, they felt it needed a little bit of an overhaul. Starting out as a basic white office, with the help of designer Jaco Janse van Rensburg, Instant Grass quickly turned it into the well-designed and thought-out space it is today.

From the 36 hanging red lanterns above the communal desk to the electric guitar hanging on the wall – the Instant Grass office encourages both fun and collaboration, something that is at the core of Instant Grass’s business, while still retaining a personal and quirky touch.

With an office that is a positive space, it makes the long nights that much easier and with the soft couches dotted throughout the office – taking a ten-minute breather or sitting down to an impromptu brainstorming session is easier than ever before.
