When Jellyfish, the world’s biggest boutique digital marketing agency, took possession of their office on Floor 22 of The Shard, the brief to the designers was to develop a space that reflects their dynamic and innovative brand.
Vtec Group’s MAXIBEAMS were chosen to enhance some of the ceiling areas – the Lightweight Beams have fantastic design flexibility and don’t need additional structural ceiling support work. The designers worked with us and created fantastic design features, working with the shape and angles of The Shard – including individually shaped Beams above the reception, and intersecting Beams above the Bar.
Product Used: MAXIBEAMS; Size: Nominal 38mm (d) x 200mm (t) Finish: Supalami Light Oak
Vtec Group also worked with the clients installation team and provided full technical support and drawings – this ensured that the complex design and layout of beams went smoothly. The intersecting beams above the bar had to be installed in a particular order to ensure the correct result, so we produced individually sized Maxi Beams to enable this. The project was a great success – read what our Client wrote about it…!
"From the very first conversation, the team at VTEC were always quick to respond to any communications, which in turn helped the project run smoothly overall. They had an excellent understanding of the task at hand and were well aligned with both ours and our client’s vision for the space. Design and delivery were consistently quick and efficient and the instructions given to the site team were concise and easy to follow. Overall a great company to work with and we look forward to working with them again in the future."
By breaking up the zones with our Supaslat 5 feature ceiling, with a stained Redwood finish, the relaxing and collaborative atmosphere of a break out area was enhanced greatly.
Creating workspace ‘zones’ with feature ceilings
The growing popularity of open plan offices requires thorough layout planning, and without the presence of walls to separate working areas there is a demand to reimagine how we introduce these zones. This includes the utilisation of ceiling space to enhance the change in purpose and atmosphere.
Rich in history, Namaste Lounge has been transformed into a modern Indian restaurant, cocktail bar and shisha lounge which Vtec Group’s MAXIBEAM and Supaslat have been used.
