Following on from the opening of its new showroom in Clerkenwell, Bisley’s investment continues with a full refurbishment of the showroom in Bray, Ireland.
Situated just South of Dublin, the showroom, which originally opened in 2009, has been transformed to demonstrate the evolution of Bisley and new landscapes for all types of office work such as communal, concentrated, formal and informal meetings and agile working.
The design, by Bisley’s Showroom and Interior Designer Jeanine Goddard, along with Denise Clemenger, Bisley Ireland Sales Manager, displays the full extent of the Bisley portfolio, along with selected items from other furniture partners. At Bisley’s core is intelligent and stylish storage and stowage, which has been used to define zones of functional and inspiring working spaces.
Denise Clemenger, Bisley’s Ireland Sales Managersaid, “we’ve created a space that is not only capable of changing perceptions of Bisley and what storage can do, but one which employees can identify with and feel at home in. With an industrial feel and an emphasis on creating a choice of spaces for different activities, the showroom may be surprising to customers that have not followed Bisley’s latest product developments.”
The showroom showcases Bisley’s design and finish capabilities through the guest area to the team/territorial working area with sit-
stand desks and personal storage. Both areas incorporate vibrant yellows and greens, through to a calm, neutral agile working area which features oak cladding and greenery. The far side of the showroom, which is close to the kitchen, is suitable for networking, informal meetings and breaks with a large solid oak dining table and a lounge style seating area with warming pops of pink. Both are in their own quiet setting, secluded from hustle and bustle by a bank of lodges.
At the heart of the showroom is a large, raised room made of tactile oriented strand board. Designed by Alex Simpson from Campbell Simpson Architects, it continues the urban feel and creates a focal point; the height giving the showroom an extra dimension. The box will act like a stage on which new products, project mock-ups or exhibitions can be showcased.
Paul Dunne, Managing Director at Bisley Ireland added, “we’ve gone from a fairly standard open-plan office/showroom to something that is unique and visually stunning; it’s a space that truly presents Bisley as the market leader it is and one that proves we can provide first class workplace solutions. I know the team is finding the variety of working spaces incredibly useful and customers who have already visited have been quite amazed with the changes we have made and the breadth of our portfolio. The new showroom is a physical manifestation of the knowledge and experience Bisley has gathered over decades of manufacturing and fitting-out high-end workplaces.”
