News: Eamesian mood in office space in Zagreb skyscraper

The top two floors of the Zagreb, Croatia’s oldest skyscraper has been redesigned by brigada spatial design agency. the history and origin of the building — mid-50’s construction — influenced the renovations, which were undertaken with a distinct 1950’s aesthetic. the 550 square meter office space is both contemporary and retro, subtly alluding to the look and lifestyle of the structure’s roots. 
Special pieces of furniture were created by brigada using american walnut veneer. the rest of the office is furnished with classic 50’s and 60’s designs including pieces by charles and ray eames, pollock, finn juhl, and herman miller. each detail was carefully thought out, and extends as far as the integration of functional items from the period such as TV sets, radios, vintage tables and chairs, telephones, stand fans, coat racks and hangers, shelving, ash trays, and other novelty gadgets.
