Our customer’s brief
A cutting edge office
A company in Essex approached us with a commercial project. They requested we create a contemporary and cutting edge furniture suite for their reception area, boardroom and office. Their local Strachan designer chose the clean, modern lines of the Portofino range, finished in striking Aura and High Gloss Black finish to achieve their desired aesthetic.
High level peninsular reception desk
We crafted a bespoke desk that utilised the reception area of the office. This featured a peninsular design with a generously sized desk space and a high level frontage, providing a worktop at the appropriate height for visitors to use.
LED strip lighting
In order to add visual interest to the desk and create a cutting edge aesthetic, we installed LED strip lighting to the reception desk. This was integrated below the worktop and beautifully highlights the characterful Aura wood grain finish.
Additional built-in storage
An additional unit was fitted against the back wall in a matching style and finish. This provided a variety of different storage solutions to suit their professional needs, including drawers, various height cabinets and a slide out shelf, which is ideal for use with printers and scanners.
Integrated fridge with ventilation
Employees in the office required storage for their food and beverages. In order to accommodate these, the unit was fitted with an integrated fridge. This was finished in a co-ordinating High Gloss Black frontage for an uninterrupted look, chrome vents were fitted to allow a consistent air flow.
Attention to detail
Bespoke and modern chrome plinth
The reception desk was finished with a brushed stainless steel plinth mould to the front which ran parallel to the LED strip lighting at the top. This contrasts against the dark tones of the Aura finish and adds additional modern charm to the bespoke fitted furniture.
Chrome edge handles
Simple and understated edge handles were fitted to the cabinet door and drawer fronts. The chrome finish of these handles keeps the appearance of the units as minimalist as possible.
Power point access
The worktop was fitted with convenient flush fitted cable ports for easier power point access. The brushed finished ports provide easy access to plug sockets, helping to keep the desk space effortlessly clear and organised.
High gloss drawer fronts
The working area of the reception desk was designed with three drawers complete with a soft close function as standard. These provide storage space for documents, correspondences and stationary and were finished in an on trend High Gloss Black finish.
