Open Desk shortlisted for ARC21 award
PUBLISHED IN DE ARCHITECT
Bs;bp’s innovative Open Desk workspace design is nominated for the ARC21 Furniture Award. We are in great company with fellow nominees Studio Nienke Hoogvliet and Joost van der Vecht. This year’s longlist included a wide range of stellar designs. The three nominees for the award were selected by the jury based on the criteria sustainability, urgency and innovation.
Open Desk was conceived as a pop-up workspace to address the growing number of abandoned retail locations. Designed with flexibility in mind, it is more affordable than transforming empty space into offices, it can be installed and dismantled in a matter of days, and brings revenue potential to the landlord and vitality to the local community.
From concept to launch in record time
The concept was market-ready in record time thanks to a unique collaboration in the early design stage between bs;bp and furniture maker Lensvelt. After a successful pilot in Napa Valley, California our client IWG has since introduced Open Desk as a core enabler of their hybrid work offering, including bs;bp projects for The Mailbox in Birmingham, Battersea Power Station in London, Spaces Westerpark and House Modernes. Open Desk is also featuring prominently in the Amsterdam Expo on The Future of Work. Read more…
