The industrial aesthetic of the Trapeze table by Thinking Ergonomix is a perfect fit at Lloyd’s of London.
May 15th, 2012
The iconic Richard Rogers-designed Lloyd’s of London building, a towering steel structure once described as “the most consistently innovative building the City has seen”, recently received a refurbishment.
Architect Ray Smith took cues from the building’s striking exterior, replicating Rogers’ original design theme to maintain continuity in the interior.
The boardroom plays a key role in the day-to-day activities of the building, a place where important discussions are held and pivotal decisions are made.
The boardroom’s design needed to reflect the prestige of the brand as well as maintain the industrial aesthetic of the base building.
Smith engaged Thinking Ergonomix’s in-house product customisation department, Thinking Solutions, to develop the boardroom’s focal point – a customised 7.6m long version of the Trapeze table system, seating 24 people.
The Thinking Solutions team worked closely with Smith and Lloyds representatives to ascertain the size, finishes, purpose and audio-visual requirements of the boardroom’s centrepoint.
The team ensured the greatest attention to detail in creating the table, ensuring that it met Lloyds’ exacting requirements by working with Smith to create concept and production drawings and renders of the overall design – guaranteeing successful manufacture and leaving no detail to chance.
The result is a beautifully finished, eye-catching product that not only performs well, but matches the high-profile image of the Lloyd’s of London brand.
