Mode:lina Offices

  • Client mode:lina™,
  • Year 2011
  • Location Poznan, Poland,
  • Industry Architecture Firm,
  • If you want to furnish your office inexpensively, you could go to IKEA. Or, better yet, you could make your furniture yourself. That’s probably a bad option for most people, actually, but not if you’re an architecture firm with a keen eye for design. Mode:lina, an architecture and consulting firm in Poznan, Poland, used OSB (Oriented Strand Board) to create almost the entire interior of their office, including the bookcases, the flooring, and the desks, (although the desk tops have been covered with artificial leather). If Apple made an OSB iMac, they’d be using that, too.

    The most impressive thing about the office is how they managed to make one of the world’s cheapest, most common building materials look stylish. Hey, it’s a lot more thoughtful than another VIKA AMON set from IKEA.
