Overview

Office_Excavate puts the emphasis on Wolf-Gordon’s extensive and beautiful collection of upholstery textiles while poetically deconstructing the formerly cubicle-driven office block and transforming it into an inviting and flexible space in which to work and interact. Office Excavate is an 18 foot long, grotto-like banquette created by extracting asymmetrical forms from the “block”. The residual forms can be positioned as desktops, tables, and stools. Both the excavated seating and forms are upholstered in over 100 Wolf-Gordon textiles arrayed by color.
