Case Study: Office Design & Furniture for Netmatter Ltd

Netmatter Ltd are a Web Development & Internet Marketing Agency based in the heart of Wokingham in Berkshire.  When they decided to move to bigger premises in the town we were asked to help them with their complete office design and refit.

Main Objectives

  • Suggest and design the new office layout
  • Suggest and provide desks and office chairs for the main office
  • Maximise the available space while keeping an open airy feel
  • Ensure a meeting room space exists within the directors offices

Our Solution

The office space needed completely renovating before we could start the refit as you can see from the picture below!

Netmatter Office Fit

Many ideas and layouts were suggested before agreeing on the final office partitioning and floor plan…

Office Plans

Once the new layout was agreed, new carpet and partitioning was installed as per the plans

The office space was partitioned off to include a separate directors office which could also be doubled up as a meeting room.

Office Partition

The partitioned office lets in plenty of light thanks to the full height glass panels and the inside was partitioned once more to create a separate communications room.

Main Office

Directors Workspace

Within the newly partitioned office, used maple Wave Desks were chosen for the directors and completed with free standing 3 drawer pedestals on wheels for file storage. The classic design offers an excellent ergonomic work space and the ability to cater for large dual monitor setups.

Directors Chairs

A chair that is used all day long needs to be extra comfortable and durable which is why second hand RH Logic 400 chairs was chosen for the two directors desks. Their wealth of ergonomic features include, fantastic lumbar support, adjustable seat, arms (height and width) and backrest.

Meeting Area

Meeting Room

The directors office also doubles as a meeting area and for the designated area we supplied a circular meeting table complete with chrome pedestal and a maple top to match the directors desks.

Round Meeting Table

Orangebox GO chairs were chosen for the meeting table due to their supreme level of comfort and performance.  They’re extremely ergonomic too and feature intelligent seat, back and arm adjustments… perfect for long meetings or training sessions.

The Main Office

A second hand Sense Desking System by Herman Miller was chosen for the main office comprising of two 3.2 metre white bench runs. This is a unique office furniture system that provides a simple modern solution for any size office or business.

The finished office is a bright welcoming and comfortable environment for staff and visiting clients.  The overall space has been maximised as desired while providing an open plan and airy working environment. The layout is just simple, clean and modern.

Main office furniture

The chairs for the main office were a mixture of more Orangebox GO chairs and the awesome HumanScale Freedom Task Chair.

Why Humanscale Freedom Chairs?

The Freedom chair has won over 10 design awards including the I.D. Design Distinction Award!  The ergonomics give the user the freedom to move while being constantly supported and has been specifically designed to encourage frequent, spontaneous changes of posture – ideal for web designers and developers (they fidget a lot!)

Additionally, the Freedom chair has revolutionised the task chair industry thanks to its weight-sensitive recline and synchronously adjustable armrests that combined, offer exceptional comfort whilst reducing the risk of back pain.

Cool for Bats?!

The cool new look even drew the bats out of the rafters! This little fella popped in the window one day after the refit, flapped around the main office for a minute then promptly flew back out of the window and down the high street!
