Interior Design for @work. London, 2005.
@work is a gallery and shop for contemporary jewellery in London. In 2005 the independent gallery set up on a new site in Pimlico, South London. Offsea developed the interior design in collaboration with the designer Michael Hurley. As the gallery also served as a work space, the challenge was to design a two-way space, working on one hand as a display and exhibition space whilst also operating as a jeweller's work space. A transformable counter was developed that showcased intricate pieces of jewellery housed and showcased in backlit 'treasure cabinets'. The back space incorporated the paraphernalia of a jeweller's tools and working equipment.
