Inspire great work

Celebrated designer Michael Sodeau collaborates with Flokk to launch new look showroom in London

When we redesigned our London, UK showroom, we turned to renowned designer Michael Sodeau to create an inspiring interior that represented modern working environments found today, whilst showcasing the very best of the designs we have to offer across our portfolio. Enlisting the help of an influential UK designer, we were looking to keep a Scandinavian feel with a British twist.

Through a mixture of lighting, furniture and fittings, the showroom is broken up into different zones, creating small environments, representative of modern working environments.

A combination of meeting spaces from casual to more formal settings have been created as well as breakout zones and general work areas.

Superfluous elements have been stripped back, keeping things simple, with the work space where Flokk staff work incorporated in a neutral way, but visually different.
