The three-storey building is spread across three levels. OfficeThe museum is located in a rectilinear, grid-like building in London’s Mayfair neighborhood.
Kohnen’s ground floor entrance hall is clad in dark-stained wooden panels. Sconce lights are added to the space for a subtle illumination.
A Djinn sofa designed by Olivier Mourge as an industrial designer in 1965 was placed in a corner.
Kohnen stated, “We have worked a great deal with vintage pieces, and we hope that our new pieces will be so well curated no one would dare throw them out.”
On the first floor of the building, a space designed in the style of a living room was created to contrast the industrial look and feel.
“The social spaces have an earthy and calm colour palette – yet they are lush and dramatic,” explained Kohnen.
In this space, a pair low-slung Lina chairs from 1955 designed by architect Gianfranco frattini are also featured. Floor-to-ceiling glass opens onto a residential terrace punctuated by potted planters.
The other rooms on this floor were also decorated in similar tones and textures.
These spaces include a contemporary kitchen. terrazzoWorktops, a meeting room and a cream-coloured paneled ceiling with a red grid were set against modernist black chairs and cream-coloured panels.
The main office is on the second level, with its rows of desks made from timber and a library-meeting room that shares the same reddish-orange hues as the entrance hall.
Kohen concluded, “The idea was that the office space would have soul and offer a more personalized work environment than the usual corporate workspaces we are used to in London.”
