The Office Group
Delving into the archives of The Office Group‘s workspace at 7 Stratford Place, we were met with an impressive former resident – Martin Van Buren, eighth president of USA. Drawing on the grandeur of this heritage and the Georgian townhouse’s classic style, we created a piece that recalls classic portraiture, but with a modern twist. In a nod to Van Buren, originator of the term ‘OK’ (‘Old Kinderhook’ was his birthplace), we created a portrait of the man himself giving the hand signal. A large typography piece, also displaying this abbreviation, sits opposite built into the framework of the period features.
Other commissions in the building include a special collaboration with Alex Fowkes, playing on the theme of the building’s number; seven. We also used neon to plays on The Office Group’s laid back approach to workspace.
