Who among us did not play with them as a kid, those colorful plastic building blocks that Lego created – the Nordic toymaker founded back in 1932 in Billund, Denmark. Part of the company’s success can be attributed to the models’ modular structure: The tiny elements together create a larger whole and kids become house-builders at an early age! In line with the company’s name, as “Lego” derives from the Danish “leg godt”, which means as much as: Play well. The idea was to have this colorful and modular Lego world reflected in the new company offices in Istanbul, the brainchild of interior designers Oso Mimarlık in 2014: They boast bright red and yellow surfaces and are outfitted with office furniture by Nurus. The open-plan office is 350 sq. m in size and home to 23 staffers – then there are also executive offices, a conference room, and a foyer complete with reception desk.
The office furniture by Turkish manufacturer Nurus is ideal for the open plan concept, as the tables, which form little working islands in the large spaces, can be extended at will and thus used very flexibly. For example, the “Gate” workstation system consists of four table modules that are linked to one another by a linear top. This serves both as an additional surface complete with integrated bar into which not only the vanity and noise insulation screens slot, but also onto which shelves can be mounted.
The “Breeze” office chair ensures you sit relaxed and sit actively. The adjustable lumbar support and the curved backrest (it can be locked in three different positions) provide optimal support for the back and neck muscles, thus promising that you end the working day on a relaxed note. Once again, Nurus, a long-standing player in the segment, proves that functional, formally reduced and flexibly expandable office furniture is the key to the optimal and refined use of constrained office spaces.
