For Workflow, curating an eclectic blend of moveable furniture for amenity spaces with a singular view of the Boston seaport meant finding pieces whose scale and silhouette let the view come through.
The team at Workflow was well-suited to furnish multiple public environments at the mixed-use building in Boston’s seaport. As designers and architects themselves, the team embraced its role selecting and procuring furnishings, storage, and accessories that complimented the architecture while the building was still under construction.
With competition for big tenants fierce, Workflow sought furniture that would evoke high-end hospitality, so they looked for pieces made with rich, natural materials like leather and wood that were interesting to look at from different angles. For the bar, the backs of Sossego’s Duda stools were beautiful without blocking the design of the bar itself.
Workflow was blending airy, modern pieces with a variety of wood tones from 40 different manufacturers. They loved how the scale and design of Sossego’s Angela armchair played well with the other pieces – a solid, high-style silhouette yet light on its feet. Important because tenants may rent the spaces for events, so furniture must be easy to move.
It turns out eclectic, modern, and unfussy go well with playful and fun, for an overall vibe that’s sophisticated but still attractive to tenants with a young workforce. And there’s always that gorgeous, unobstructed view of the harbor; from out on the terrace and from the interior spaces. A marriage of good design and careful curation of just the right pieces.
