Lend Lease Head Office, Barangaroo
Lend Lease required strong customised wooden furniture pieces in their new Australian headquarters that would celebrate their association with, and commitment to, the construction industry.
Raw materials including metal were incorporated to embody the foundational stage of building. Most striking is the 7.2m long boardroom table crafted from a Tasmanian Huon Pine log with Walnut butterfly feature joints and a blackened steel base.
Other design units demonstrate an innovative dimension with their modern elements including solid American oak timber workstation benches supported by dual column steel legs with laser-cut steel feet. Raised meeting tables with American oak veneer surfaces supported by dual cylindrical bases made of machined MDF with Polyurethane paint finishes are accentuated by a central solid timber bowl feature, whilst tables incorporate solid timber strip maritime-style detailing and tapered timber legs.
Multi-purpose meeting tables in a ‘S’ shape pattern with controlled rotating tops in American oak veneer further enhance the organic flow within the space.
