MoharDesign focused on the furniture portion of this project, working exclusively with the client’s preferred local furniture vendor. Furniture selections included break areas, lounge areas, offices, and conference rooms. A large number of offices, featuring a curved wall, required the altering of standard furniture. Customized scribed edges permit furniture to fit the irregular shaped wall and columns. Fabric choices act as accent colors coexisting with the interior of the building.
