LOOKBOOK ABSTRACT MODERN OFFICE FURNITURE
WORK VS PLAY
One may think that a space with organic shaped furniture and vibrant colors would be better fit for a break room because most people believe that anything remotely fun or relaxing belongs in a room where workers can do just that: have an enjoyable time. However, work and pleasure have been considered two exclusive things for too long. Humans work for ⅓ of their lives on average so why resign yourself to more than 90,000 hours of your life to dull, monotonous labor? While not immediately obvious, our moods can be influenced by our surroundings. It’s like how rainy weather can subtly make people feel more down or subdued. Work can be fun, and that starts with styling your workspace right.
A TOUCH OF WHIMSY
Dynamic lounge benches & seating make a striking abstract office impression.
LOUD & PROUD
Turn heads with radioactive neons, in-your-face graphics & daring silhouettes.
Abstract Modern design is a style that emerged in the 20th century. It combines influences, trends, and new technologies without adhering to one specific design philosophy. This type of interior design is all about clean lines, though it also uses chaotic aspects to make it seem fresh and unique. It’s about breaking free of traditional rules and reimagining everyday furniture into something eye-catching but still functional and comfortable.
Juxtapose sinuous curves with hard lines & dramatic angles.
ABSTRACT, NEVER SUBTRACT
Abstract design tends towards bold, vibrant colors and oftentimes uses black as a contrast to create a statement. Allermuir’s Famiglia table and seating (Image 18) offer inspiration with its comfortable deep peach-colored conference chairs that are distinctive amongst the white walls, wood floors, and black metal accents, adding an air of timeless elegance into the space.
MAKE IT MODULAR
Create & recreate your abstract office space with modular pieces that allow you to creatively change & adapt.
What’s more, this interior style leans toward being resimercial. The resimercial design is meant to be a transition from the typical, sterile and standardized corporate workplace, to one that brings a more laid-back feel to the office. It helps incorporate the joys and comforts of the residential home to the commercial office.
OUTSIDE THE BOX
GORGEOUS CURVES AHEAD
Invite people in with with soft silhouettes & sumptuous curves.
REAL FURNITURE HAVE CURVES
Cantilever furniture also fits into the theme because of their unique structure. They don’t follow the usual arrangement of 4 legs and are held and supported by a single leg attached to the end of a chair seat and bent in an L shape. It’s a fresh, modern design that fits perfectly into the abstract design.
THE POWER OF ONE
Who needs four legs? A single L-shape leg defines & streamlines the modern silhouette of the cantilever chair.
MAKING A STATEMENT
As shown in Lacasse’s Hip Hop collection, splashes of pop art and neon colors fit perfectly with this theme as well. Curvilinear furniture and bright colors are already the attention grabbers of the room, but without the patterned wall textures, and the iconic face of Marilyn Monroe, the overall room can feel empty. Abstract modern art makes the space feel more inhabited and gives it personality; its original purpose was to evoke positive emotions and that’s why it works perfectly in tandem with the philosophy of Abstract Modern design.
