Astelav s.r.l. - Area innovazione - Meeting Room
Astelav is a leading company in Europe in the distribution of accessories and spare parts for household appliances. In recent years, Studio Doppio has established a fruitful collaboration that has led to the renewal of the image of the common areas of the historic Vinovo headquarters.
One of the interventions is the new meeting room called "area innovation" in which we find the "Bilevel"table. The table measures 450 x 110 cm and is characterized by two different heights (75 and 110 cm) with two consequent modes of use: standing and sitting. The decision to design a table with different heights arises from the need of the client to be able to carry out not only institutional but also informal meetings where the upper part of the table becomes, depending on the case, a work plan, a podium or a bar counter.
Bilevel is made up of parallelepipeds / oak containers of different sizes alternating with frames in metal box that are coupled to the supporting structure of the table tops. The table is made by LS Lignumlab, while the chairs and stools are from the series About a chair / stool by HAY.
Graphics and communication
For some years, when required, we have dealt with designing the graphics applied to the spaces we design.
On this occasion, we have created a graphic composition on the front wall of the innovation hall, consisting of motivational phrases concerning the corporate values of Astelav, whereas on the large wall parallel to the meeting table, we have designed a complex infographic system to illustrate the historical evolution of the company from its foundation until today.
The graphic wall consists, at the bottom, of a timeline comprising dates and logos that have characterized Astelav’s history, and above we have placed three groups of images collected from the corporate photographic archive, representing the remote past, the past and the near future of the company (namely, time ago,old timeand new time).
All images have been digitized and reproduced on aluminium panels of various thicknesses.
