Taking a radical approach to office furniture design, London based architects Studio Octopi have designed this range of original furniture for the offices of advertising agency 18 Feet & Rising. Taking inspiration from basketball courts, the designers let their imagination run riot, using a mixture if materials including plywood and a steel frame.
Part of the agency’s brief to the architects was to demonstrate their love of basketball – this is done with the inclusion of the power points looking a bit similar to hoops and the flat, wide tabletops representing the courts.
This year the agency plan to hold a basketball game to raise money for a London school to buy a new court. The old one will then become worktops for their desks, which is what we call recycling in action!
