Architect studio Kaels designed the new head office for advertising agency SMFB with references to historical ornamentation and contemporary design in an old hotel building in the centre of Oslo. The office is beautifully highlighted with a few strong key colours. Green and yellow are reflected in Bolon flooring by smaller areas of Botanic Ivy and Viva, whereas 600 square metres of Artisan Ecru set the beige bas. “The space was remarkable with old windows and a special charm. We brought in Bolon flooring as an updated and modern version of a hotel carpet in the concept”, says interior architect Sebastian T. Holmgren.
