The aesthetic design quality of Herman Miller’s furniture has made such an impact on the creative and interactive atmosphere within the team. The vibrant colours and unique style really brings the concept of working on a business park to life.

Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford, and is the largest university press in the world. It publishes in many countries in a variety of different languages and across virtually the whole range of academic and educational disciplines.

The Project

Much of the group’s work is centred on the latest in digital media technology and the new environment needed to house an Audio Visual editing post production facility and services that require the latest in communication technology.

The offices were designed to cope with bandwidth-intensive applications up to 100mb over a sophisticated voice over IP network and a dedicated project meeting room offers interactive whiteboard technology enabling the collaborative use of electronic documents and multimedia materials via computer.

With digital technology planning such a big part in the direction of the company, they were keen to work with partners who could design and furnish the office space to match the contemporary and high-tech feel offices.

The Office Furniture Solution

A vibrant, light and airy open plan layout was required alongside meeting rooms and secluded studio space conducive to the technical and specialised nature of the group’s work.

The design of the new offices with high doors and ceilings projects a sense of open space, the ideal environment for work-shopping creative ideas and solutions.

Working alongside our partner company, W Plus, we executed an office furniture solution that offered the best workstation layout and seating for the open plan office.

550 new workstations and meeting rooms were furnished with Herman Miller’s Sense Desking, Orangebox Office Seating and Conference Tables and some cool new telephone pods from Boss Design.
