Flashback Friday: Ikon Office Solutions, 1999 (Video)

???In 1999 IKON Office Solutions, a premier high-end copier company, turned to our team to design the space of their new showroom and offices located within a window laden ground floor office in Boston’s financial district. The challenge was to create a space that was more than just a place of business, but rather an architectural reflection of IKON’s innovative products.

We strategically placed IKON’s conference room and product display area along the street side of the showroom, while keeping the reception area, offices, storage and open-work area within the space’s interior.

We also designed a custom reception desk for the space. As you can see, we sought to create an illusion of the desk “floating” in space through the use of mirrors to ground and crown triangular lace wood panels.

As always, thanks for flashing back with us, and stay tuned for next week’s Flashback Friday!
