Moving to a hybrid working model, fashion retailer Dune London, sought a workspace that better suited their needs. Flexibility was key to creating a hub’ with hot desking, spaces for meetings or conference calls, and informal breakout space for socialising and collaboration. Incorporating showrooms and design studios were also essential, providing a showcase of product for international and domestic partners.

The Bureau team did a fantastic job from the very first meeting and visits to showrooms all the way through to the furniture installation — they were on hand to assist and advise. The team’s knowledge and expertise was invaluable. The new office space delivers everything we had hoped to achieve in the new environment, flexible meeting spaces, a permanent and hot desk hybrid environment and most importantly creating a more collaborative space for all teams across the business to work much closer together.

Office Design Inspiration

Designers, Four-By ‑Two, took inspiration from the design aesthetic of the building. The contemporary, industrial feel complemented Dune’s personality as a leading fashion brand. Concrete slabs and columns were left exposed with the fit out and furniture dropping seamlessly into the space.

Contemporary Elements

The look and feel of the fit out reflects timeless, classic design. The base palette is warm, neutral and earthy. Introducing black metal framed partitioning, bespoke screening and a geometric patterned carpet added dynamic, contemporary elements to the interior.

Workspace Furniture

Loose furniture was selected to complement this contrast with functional desking systems and co-ordinating screens picking out the tones of the concrete. Iconic pieces such as the Fredericia Swoon Petite and Fredericia Ditzel, mixed with fun, statement armchairs in the breakout area adds variety.

Height Adjustable Tables

For comfort and well-being, height adjustable tables were provided not only for hot-desking but also for meeting rooms.

Overcoming Supply Chain Challenges

Current, global supply chain issues created challenges in meeting timeline targets. With furniture manufacturers’ lead times changing unexpectedly, sometimes from day to day, Bureau had to respond quickly with solutions.

The Bureau team did a brilliant job to keep us up to speed with any availability changes and highlighted potential issues in advance, suggesting alternatives that would meet the client’s deadline.”
