The lab occupies a 1,000 sqm former lobster tank and fridge, divided by Spacon & X into three open floors with no dividing walls. It has panoramic views from floor-to-ceiling windows that face the restaurants, cafés and galleries of the Copenhagen’s meatpacking district. The office space is designed to create a calm and meditative mood that invites people to change working positions throughout the day. The flow table is designed for both sitting and standing positions, and the tree house is built under its own skylight to make use of the natural light of the space to create a Zen-like space for meetings, napping or just working in a lotus position.
Space10 challenged the artist and designer Maaike Fransen to create interior design using only repurposed Ikea products. Maaike Fransen created two odd and humorous hacks. One creation was a bubbly white hangout space resembling a snowy landscape, and the other was a mobile workstation for lazy people.
