Colourful strings weave through renovated offices of Californian design agency

Eleanor Gibson, for Dezeen:

Blue and red threads form a colourful canopy above the workspaces of a multidisciplinary design team in Oakland, California, overhauled by architecture practice Medium Plenty.

The installation of strings created by artist Annie Tull takes “top billing” in the renovation, which saw the architecture team strip the space back to its “concrete bones” – including exposed beams and columns.

Working with Enlisted Design’s founder and lead designer, Beau Oyler, Medium Plenty chose neutral additions – like white partitions and pale plywood pegboard walls – for the 4,500-square-foot (418-square-metre) studios.

The colourful threads, in groups of red, blue and a dark grey, provide a contrast to the pared-back elements.
