IBI Group is an international practice of Architects, urban planners and engineers. With an HQ already located in Canada, Thirdway and Tribe were appointed to deliver and furnish their new office space in London.

The client requested a mature and contemporary take on an industrial style that would be designed with respect to the excellent refurbishment that was recently carried out on the building which left brickwork exposed, exposed services and Crittal exterior windows. The brief for Tribe was to incorporate furnishings to help create an engaging environment that would be in keeping with both the building and the surrounding area.

Tribe worked closely with the client throughout the project, helping to source a variety of pieces, some which were familiar like the Vitra Eames plastic chairs for the breakout area, as well as new products from UK manufacturer Frovi.

Ensuring that the finishes of the furnishings were in keeping with those of the building meant that the overall scheme was primarily neutral, minimal and modern with a pop of colour.
