The Synchroon office occupying the 14th floor of a recently-completed tower in central Utrecht features leafy partitions using over 750 plants throughout the entire office.

However, attaining this open feeling requires specific interior strategies to overthrow the question if it really is an open space. Further separation is created between workspaces by the use of different furnishings, like the Boring Office chair placed behind the Boring Office desk, while warmer, tan-coloured leather sofas and ottoman have been placed in communal areas where staff can chat or host informal meetings.

Pink 101 chairs by Maarten Baas, and timber tables with bright yellow legs, have also been used to dress the break area. At the top of each is a soil-filled through, from which tropical plants rise up to form a ‘green veil’ between employees of different departments.

The studio arranged the workspace around a series of one-metre-high walls clad in white tiles.
