Based near Great Malvern, CKS is a creative British company established in 1975 which designs, develops and supplies to the global market, an innovative range of domestic and professional kitchen essentials.
We worked closely with CKS to compile a brief, and evolved a scheme that resulted in a delighted client and a beautiful and efficient workplace. All aspects of the design were under consideration by us from electrical and mechanical, finishes, sourcing, specifying and obviously furniture design and manufacture. Desking and storage were the main items of furniture required but not at the cost of aesthetics. We came up with the walnut serpentine wall as an innovative solution to house the banks of standard cupboards and office filing. This provided help with acoustics and very extensive storage, part of which forms a screen for unsightly items such as photo copiers. Along with the walnut wall the “oak flyovers” and high gloss red acrylic material form strong lines and blocks of colour creating dynamic visual effects. With unobstructed vistas across the countryside the minimal glazing bars and casements open up the space allowing the natural light to flow in and a great view out.
CKS tracked us down after noticing office furniture produced by us fifteen years previously for another company. It is the careful attention to design detail, finishes and planning that ensures the quality and longevity of our work.
