Synthesis Design + Architecture [1] has combined the trappings of a modern workspace with the timeless beauty of wood. The organic, sweeping shapes cleverly hide frosted Perspex storage units that are internally lit by LED [2]s. The CNC-cut [3]plywood ribs and spacers create the image of a world map, providing visual interest and leading the eye across the room. Made for a private client in Chelsea, the workspace is “an exercise in realizing complex geometries with limited finances”. Looking at the bespoke desk, precisely crafted panels, and flowing architecture, one would never guess Synthesis was limited by anything.
