St George

One Blackfriars

The reception desk at One Blackfriars was formed using various elements. The joinery element of the desk was detailed using solid works by our in house joinery company, Piper Joinery, in coordination with the needs of both the M and E elements. Once the joinery detailing was complete we were able to continue design of the ribbon to ensure that the final design was as close to the original concept, while providing a desk that met the needs of the end users. We used a series of CNC manufactured templates to ensure that when both desk and ribbon met there would be no alterations required. The ribbon element is finished with a texture of liquid metal, over 5 metres long, has no joints and weighs 400kg with support. Specialist lifting plans were required and the upmost care to position it on site where the joinery could be assembled within. The final piece was the shaped, back painted glass worktop that was templated using a ProDim digital templating machine that allowed our glass manufacturer to take detailed measurements.
