Atlas Iron’s new fitout is the work of Perth design firm Design Monkee, with furniture from Wilkhahn.
November 16th, 2011
Rapidly expanding junior miner Atlas Iron needed a new workspace that would accommodate the company’s growth.
The 1600sqm space required a speedy turnaround – just 4 months from briefing to final handover.
The designers took inspiration from the location of Atlas Iron’s iron ore mines, in the north of Western Australia where the horizon, land and sky dominate. Natural materials were used for feature floor finishes, and the sky is represented through light blue feature ceiling panels with construction mesh panelling through the reception area.
Metallic elements in the furniture and lighting and horizon and striation lines in the wall and cabinet work detailing reference the natural metallic striation in the ore.
Furniture from Wilkhahn, with its inspired functionality and light ambience, creates a professional but at once relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
A mix of offices and workstations, meeting rooms, quiet rooms and breakout areas create a flexible and multi-functional space.
