Tsunami Axis create inspiring work spaces that transform the way people work - with a global partner network of over 300 leading furniture brands. With offices in London, Edinburgh and Frankfurt, alongside a Service Centre in St. Neots, the brief for the Tsunami Axis showroom space was for it to feel just like home. Benholm were delighted to jump on board - knowing biophilic design principles would be perfectly placed to achieve this.
The principles create a human centred approach that, when applied, improve the spaces we live and work, with numerous benefits to our health and well-being. Whilst the concept of biophilia is not new, it has become established in the architecture and design world, fast becoming recognised by the world's biggest organisations.
We considered the best ways to help achieve warmth and comfort for the office's lounge scenes, informal meeting areas, sit-stand desking and meeting rooms. There are also multiple creative ‘project spaces’ where Tsunami work with clients and their professional teams. These spaces are regularly updated with the latest products in the industry so it was important for them to stand out.
With a forest scene mural in the pipeline and Interface moss in stone flooring from their human connections range already selected we set about bringing the outdoors in. Focusing on plants and greenery we installed floor standing planters, cabinet top planters, grid shelving bursting with different varieties of plants and a hanging garden suspended from the ceiling, draping down the stairway.
Artificial panels filled with greenery really popped against exposed brickwork but most exciting of all, we had the opportunity to install our 'first of it's kind' 3D wave Nordik Moss wall.
We relish the opportunity to be creative - our Nordik Moss was mounted to follow the curve of a wave, with the Tsunami logo sat atop for a truly 3D effect.
