Following the clean and nature inspired fit out by Butler and Willow, Utility+ provided AKABA as well as Wood & Metal product to E-Days and their new canal side offices in Nottingham. The move was a big step for the annual leave tracking technology company, stepping away from their rather tired, cosy (and very toasty) offices a stone’s throw away.
Whilst their branding is vibrant with orange logo, the colour scheme selected opted for a more subtle approach using shades of blue and green, as well as many natural finishes including real wood staves and ply effect edges on tops.
The hub of the office was a dedicated area for informal meetings and socialising. It included Wood & Metal’s bridge table with solid wood tops, sanded & varnished alongside wire frame Kabi Chairs upholstered in Synergy & Blazer fabrics.
The soft seating area included Hanna chairs on wood & sled bases around carma tables and a curved Naughtone symbol bench. There was also a Connection seating tryst booth.
Open plan spaces used cube benches, tonique chairs and fabric wrapped screens. The high tables also featured solid wood tops with AKABA kabi bar stools surrounding them.
The boardroom was also a key part of the space using Wood & Metal’s Max table with Soul chairs. The table top opted for was a Fenix with exposed chamfered edges, the finish a sparkling off – white (very eye catching!)
The project was a pleasure to work on, and you get a real kick seeing such a young, growing and exciting company moving into their first dedicated space. Seeing an office that represents their ambition but also their identity is great to see.
