Christian Pottgiesser revamped the office space of two Parisian companies, Pons and Huot. His aim was to create an alien and extra-terrestrial feel for the office space. The office space was originally a 19th century industrial hall, and was refurbished by Pottgiesser in order to create a large open work area that was funky yet functional.
The brief was to create a futuristic and unconventional office space, therefore Pottgiesser came up with the use of Plexiglas half globes to cover the private workspaces. Apart from looking really cool, the globes also have a more practical function as they help conceal noise and give the occupier a sense of privacy.
We think this office space is truly great. It has a light and airy feel, something helped by the vaulted ceilings and vegetation, while at the same time encouraging privacy where needed. That said, cleaning all those Plexiglas surfaces to keep them finger print free must be an unenviable task!
