Office Design: Transparent and Cheerful Panels

raw color ABN AMRO Eindhoven

Anyone who visited The Netherlands knows that the Dutch are not afraid of colorful spaces, even for the corporate office spaces. It is easy to add a punch of colors into an office space. For example, you can paint the cabinet drawers, choose a fun color for the chairs or use the color blocking technique for your room dividers.

Interior designers Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe went a step further when they gave new life to the ABN Amro bank office in Eindhoven. Instead of the typical commercial blinds, they collaborated with Rubia Natural Colour to create a series of curtain panels made with 100% natural pigments.

I read on Raw Color that 13 curtain panels were executed in semi translucent wool. The beauty comes when they overlap with each other to create colour blends between the panels. Really, it is a simple project for you to do. I love the pop of colors and the green living aspect. You could boost the morale of your team by trying to incorporate each member’s favorite color in the space where they mostly work.
