FLAMINGO:
Flamingo was looking for a partner who could shape the interior of their newly built office. More specifically the entrance, the offices on the ground floor and the meeting room on the second floor.
To add a more human and animal-friendly dimension to this, the choice was made to soften the design of the interior.

The neon Flamingo logo greets the employee and visitor in the office building. The curved low counter separates the reception area from the office islands. The use of different materials in the floor indirectly forms the circulation zone. The curtains are a visual separator that provide security and acoustically seal off the spaces. The coffee corner is central to the space as a meeting place for all parties. 🦩🦩

REVISTA:
For the materialization of the coffee bar Revista, the existing materials and branding are taken into account. The large amount of wood used in the current interior is reflected in the oak of the bar and the shelves. As an accent, the bar counter is covered in its entirety with shiny Moroccan tiles. The color of the tiles is coordinated with the branding of the establishment, which consists mainly of pink and terracotta tones. The bar and kitchen is held neutral to allow the wood and tiles to speak more strongly.

The cozy atmosphere of the daytime coffee bar. πŸ₯°πŸ₯β˜•οΈ

In this photo you can clearly see the new dynamics brought by the new bar furniture. The bar and the wall shelf are arranged in the same angled line through the space. Working with round, organic shapes softens and reduces the impact the bar has in the space and on circulation. The rounded corners allow for a more flexible flow of staff and customers.

REVISTA:
tonight we are enjoying a good glass of wine, at Revista! The well-known coffee bar by day and cocktail bar by night, went through a metamorphose last year, designed by the VIVA team.

With increasing popularity, it became clear that the former bar and kitchen were a bottleneck during peak times. By pushing the bar furniture diagonally into the space, more room is created for the kitchen and more space is available behind the bar.

We love the warm atmosphere and look forward to snuggling into their sofa tonight! And maybe stretch our dancing legs for a moment.... πŸ’ƒπŸ·πŸ‚

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER: In relation to the historical heritage, all materials and additions form one whole of 'luxury & style' - what the fair stands for - with respect for the iconic building, and valuable restored to its 'former' glory.⁠

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER: The new furniture for the Diamond Exchange hall, is based on the circulation and walking lines throughout the space. To give the different zones, ( with their different needs for privacy), their own identity and character, VIVA placed a large mobile furniture diagonally. Smaller, cosy spots appear. The "scene" is flexible and adaptable; the central furniture can be rolled aside for large events! The private character is reinforced by the greenery in the planters that visually shield parts of the room. At the edge of the hall we place a number of closed volumes where private meetings can take place. ⁠

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER: For more than 100 years, the Diamond Exchange has been an established venue within Antwerp and far beyond for trading diamonds. For some years now, the large, prestigious exhibition hall has been used less and less for its initial purpose; evaluating and trading precious stones. It is now mainly used by older members as a meeting
Different types of encounters, to make the space more vibrant, occur in the hall: open meetings, business meetings, closed meetings and major events such as lectures, exhibitions,... Each type of "encounter" has different requirements towards privacy, to which furniture and scenography are adapted.⁠
