Latvian interior and product designer Anna Butele created a very creative office space for her interior design office in Riga, Latvia.
While the space seems sparse at times, the design is in the details, as Charles Eames would say.
The design was built on the basis of color’s effect on a human feelings. The bright colors in combination with pops of fluorescent throughout, give it tons of energy to help keep employees in a positive mood.
The painting called “Daudz laimes” depicts the designer herself, and was given to her by her brother, a popular singer in Latvia named Gustavo, as a surprise birthday present. The artwork was executed together by Anna’s friends: Christina Luize Avotina, Evita Kirsone, and Laura Ozola. A fun tidbit – Gustavo also wrote a special song to Anna, which was also called “Daudz laimes,” which you can hear here. So sweet!
The sofa is an inflatable design from Blofield. I love the mix of modern furnishings in this traditional space. I feel like the Blofield sofa is a nice representation of the entire space.
The storage shelf was designed by Anna. I like how the chair’s wood matches the molding’s neon detail. Just in case the chair gets moved, you’ll always know which room it belongs to!
In tiny corners on the office walls, inconspicuous concise phrases are almost hidden. They serve to motivate, inspire and remind.
I especially love the handle arrangement detail on the kitchen cabinets.
