Robin Chell Design

Ignition Capital

Location: Downtown Seattle

RCD provided interior design services for the 6500 square foot headquarters of this prestigious global venture capital firm, which has close ties to Asia. The guiding concept was to create an inspiring and productive workplace that encouraged interaction among employees and that welcomed visitors with pleasant common areas. Workspaces, offices and conference areas were designed to maximize light and transparency. Color, texture and materials were designed to incorporate the client's extensive collection of Asian prints, and a variety of Asian antiques were procured and incorporated into the space.

Multiple artisans and local craftspeople were used to design sustainable, customized furnishings for this office. Among the unique pieces were a reception desk and coffee table made from 1000-year old Chinese stone stair treads. A 14-foot conference table, crafted locally by Meyer/Wells, was made from reclaimed wood from the Pacific Northwest.
