Fosbury & Sons meets Going East studio to escape the classic office aesthetics

Fosbury & Sons is an antidote to the office of the past. 🧪

A six-thousand-square-meter square Dutch hospital that dates back to 1845 borders the waters of the city's Prinsengracht canal in Amsterdam is the new home for coworking company Fosbury & Sons' first international branch, which features amaze interiors by Going East.

The furn highlights, u may ask? There are eight classic Thonet armchairs, all covered in black bend leather, w/ a plus of Marcel Breuer S 64 PV chairs w/ cognac covers made of natural Nappa leather, beautifully matching the wooden desks with flecked-stone bases. Aaaaand last but not least: a dope selection of contemporary artworks that were specially curated by local galleries.

It’s a place where guests are encouraged to amble thru workrooms and discover new feelings each time. "It's an important mix for us as a design studio: custom, hand-made versus classics and unknown designers," explained the studio Going East to Deezen mag.

And they created more: A number of communal areas where guests can sit and work, several meeting rooms, a former operating theatre that has been transformed into a dramatic boardroom. Also, a healthy cafe, a drink bar and a library-style space that overlooks the building's central garden.

It’s a daydream place.
