New Look, new flagship building in the heart of London’s West End. Oxford Street is the heart of the British fashion industry. The offices are predicted to facilitate buying and merchandising. There are range rooms around the perimeter of each floor.
The range rooms are where we build ranges and gather samples and swatches, assess trends, assemble mood boards and so on. “The essence of our design was to collate groups near their range rooms. There’s a continuous circulation around the space via a “runway” with ready access to the merchandisers and buyers.
Having looked at many systems, New Look and interior designers CBRE chose Herman Miller’s Abak Environments for the workstations, 120 degree, bench style, they are good quality which helped everyone buy into the openness of the design. By each workstation there’s “Tallboy” storage to accommodate clothing. At 600mm wide, it was developed by Herman Miller to have maximum flexibility with all manner of internals that can be changed around to suit the individual.” To compliment and to finish the overall aesthetic, New Look decided to go with Herman Millers revolutionary new ergonomic task chair the Embody. A chair, which complements the uniqueness of the interior space.
