Chemo Offices

The profession of architecture during decades has put lot of attention in the shape of what we call the concave, the container. The real necessities of the user were completelly forgotten. Spaces need to be functional, practical.

With our approach we want to stress the convex. We firmly believe that those things that can generate activity are what can define the use of the space, the continent. This is our way to work and design in this office for Chemo Group. We remark the importance of the design of these pieces such as: tables, chairs, plant pots, phone calls, shelves… it’s about furnishing.

The offices can be understood as an addition of objects that put together in a particular way define the uses of the different areas. Different kind of artifacts that are related and added  in  an open space but at the same time they are all from the same family. Different spaces for different activities: single work space, meeting rooms, small meeting areas, resting spaces, cantine,… It is a way to understand the exercise stressing the continent but not so much the continent.
