“We were approached by the product development team at Tate Modern who wanted to showcase the type of work we’ve been doing through our shirts and books at Concrete Hermit” explains Director Chris Knight. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to bring the work of these artists to a wider audience. Hopefully the project will reward the Tate’s willingness to engage with contemporary illustration and design and be the first of many collaborations.”
All three boardrooms and a lounge are executed in an overall design concept. Large round lampshades, spray painted gold on the inside, seem to cast light and shadow oval marks throughout the whole space. By this, a playful pattern of golden ovals contrasts with the angular cabinets and desks, which are executed in black stained ash wood. In the flooring the oval shaped forms continue by using light and dark grey carpet. Also, these ovals define the separate working areas.
The lounge area has, in combination with the white marble flooring these same light/shadow patterns that cover the bar and benches in silver fabrics. This area can be used for presentations or social working, with an integrated flat screen in the bar and data connections in all pieces of furniture. The existing space is set in a 17th century historic building, at one of the most famous canals of Amsterdam called ‘de gouden bocht’. All existing ornaments and details are painted white.
