No 1 Moorgate - office furniture
Created on 09/11/11
ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales), at the flagship 1 Moorgate building chose IOR to supply furniture for the re-fit of their prestigious meeting rooms.
The conference table images show the rise-and-fall power and data ports, capped by glass features. These glazed lids use an acid etched pattern taken from original door furniture in the building, with molten metal poured in to create the base relief design. The chairs are a custom-design drawing upon the Arts & Crafts heritage of the building, using handmade frames in solid walnut, developed in close liaison with ICAEW. The original architect of 1 Moorgate, John Belcher, was a founder member of the Craft Makers Guild, and his design principles are used in the new furniture.
