I was asked for a project on the interior design of the office of a financial investment company. This investment company was seated in the World Trade Center in Amsterdam, a dynamic business environment. In cooperation with architects who gave the assignments, I carried out the project and gave some advices on the Feng Shui in the office. The office space became a functional, clean and modern space where the colors were white and light gray. These colors stand for the metal element: focus, clarity and concentration.
We also used white and gray in the meeting room. At the reception we placed a “moss panel”. This is a wonderful natural product to refresh a clean and modern office environment, making it more beautiful and alive. We have also placed beautiful big plants in each room to increase the humidity, to make the room pleasant and to reduce work stress.
In the office of the director (the only female director in the board) we have placed a coffee table with comfortable chairs. As a result, we created a place for informal conversations. In this office space we used soft earth colors. We chose wooden cabinets and painted a wall with gold-yellow finish (element metal). We arranged a good archive space with perfect archive system, which provided a good administration. In this room we placed a beautiful large plant, as described above in the meeting room.
We have created a very nice, pleasant and functional working place where employees felt comfortable, were productive and could concentrate well on their work.
