Diageo, the world’s largest distributor of spirits and home to some of the world’s best loved drinks brands, wanted to promote the different characters in the company’s portfolio by creating custom office furniture in a series of meeting spaces inspired by each brand.
Working with the client team and Stanhope, we designed tables and custom office furniture within meeting spaces in the corporate offices that drew from a palette of materials including glass, timber and steel to create truly personable spaces for group and independent working. The starting off point for each space in the corporate offices was the different aesthetic qualities of each drinks brand. From gin to whiskey, each presented a unique palette of materials, colours and tones from which to draw inspiration for the custom office furniture.
Working with the client we designed some of our boardroom tables in the corporate offices to be reconfigurable for tele-conferencing. A number of tables could be opened out to allow each user to be seen on screen in a staggered formation.
