The Office Group was established to create a work environment that is simple, flexible and more considered in design, both in the look and style of each building and in the variety of ways they can be used . Their ultimate aim is to allow you to get the most out of your building as well as your office. They recently redesigned their West End office location, and instructed the UK art consultancy Acrylicize to help them do this. Having discovered that the building was the former residence of US President Martin Van Buren, the project used numerous pieces of original art in order to bring the space back to its former grandeur.
In a nod to Van Buren, originator of the term ‘OK’ (Old Kinderhook was Van Buren’s birthplace), the president is pictured seated for his portrait. This time, in a tongue-in-cheek take on the original, his slogan takes centre stage as he makes the well-known hand gesture.
