Following a successful first project for Seco Tools, we were thrilled to roll it out across their Bourges office. The only problem was national lockdown coming into effect just as our vans prepared to leave! Instead, we worked with the customer to ship materials in stages as the site became ready. YouTube tutorials assisted with remote installs, and utilising local suppliers ensured the new office still opened on time.
A creative design by Wylde IA incorporated structural Eiffel Tower motifs, used in a variety of ways across the 2 floors. This included manifest glazing, for which Artworks provided templates to assist the client with installation.
Hundreds of Alto ceiling baffles hung in open-plan offices and we worked closely with the French joinery company despite a language barrier. Valchromat machined displays and bold digital wallpaper were teamed with Novawall acoustic panels in booth seating areas, featuring local landscape imagery. Suspended acoustic cubes with machined ply featured Alto acoustic inserts edged with LEDs, to create bespoke focal points. Ultimately the client loved it and we all look forward to the next one.
Glass splashbacks in the kitchen areas threw up a challenge when working around French plug sockets, but nothing our team couldn’t figure out!
After the success of our initial Seco Tools design for the company’s UK head office in Alcester, the design scheme was chosen to be rolled out worldwide across Seco’s offices including Brno, Budapest and Bourges. As lead consultants, Wylde are proud to have been part of this project for Seco Tools France in Bourges!Dave Nowell, Director
