LOOKBOOK ABSTRACT MODERN OFFICE FURNITURE

Favoring unusual shapes & bold colors, the Abstract Modern Office is a vibrant departure from the traditional.  It aims to add a playful – but never distracting – element to the workspace.

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.

ABSTRACT ROOTS

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.

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.

RESIMERCIAL COMFORTS

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

Abstract Modern is meant to inspire outside-the-box thinking and stimulate productivity and positivity. Compared to other types of interior styles, this one does not depend heavily on its setting as much as it does on the furniture occupying its space. Plain white walls and wide open windows typically serve as a blank canvas to let the whimsy of the furniture take center stage. White walls allow the striking shapes and colors of the furnishings pop, while generously wide windows ensure that workers never feel closed off and disconnected from the outside.

GORGEOUS CURVES AHEAD

REAL FURNITURE HAVE CURVES

One important aspect of the Abstract Modern style is curvilinear furniture. Many are drawn to  curvilinear furniture with vivid accents that make the workroom stand out. Curves are evocative of nature. They defy the concept that everything in an office has to be neatly arranged in lines and break the tension of crisp edges and hard angles. Furthermore, studies have shown that people gravitate towards curvilinear and circular furniture because they have a more inviting, relaxed, comfortable feel and therefore elicits more pleasant feelings. For instance, Allermuir’s Kin chair collection (Image 27) consists of mono-shell seating that does not conform to traditional structures of chairs with sharp right angles and rigid materials — yet does not compromise efficiency or comfort.

CANTILEVER DELIVERS

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.

Together, the odd shapes and bright colors combine to be an eclectic aesthetic that’s never disorderly and is instead an inspiring modern office design that stimulates the senses. The Abstract Modern interior design is here to reinvigorate workers by reimagining the office and redefining the boundaries between work and pleasure.
