Shape Studio was commissioned by Jotta and Jump Architects to create an innovation space within the German manufacturer’s UK headquarters, The Crystal.
The design was led by Jotta and the detailing and realisation of the concept was enabled by Shape Studio.
The ambition with the design, was to reflect the bold architecture of The Crystal’s exterior while also surpassing the strict environmental standards that make The Crystal one of Europe’s most sustainable buildings. Responding to these challenges Jotta utilised innovative materials such as Bencore - a lightweight, light-permeable, honey-combed panel material custom moulded in Italy.
Shape Studio enabled the realisation of a complex system in order to accommodate two sliding screens within a very tight space. These screens can be pushed with one finger around the entire circle, without a floor track.
All of the curved aluminium track system and other furniture elements were design, detailed and finished here at Shape Studio to the highest standard.
