Inside Gummo’s Amsterdam Ad Agency Offices
Amsterdam-based ad agency Gummo has one of the more unique offices we’ve seen on Office Snapshots. Designed by i29 interior architects, the space uses all reused furniture which has been sprayed dark grey.
i29 is no stranger to transforming conceptual ideas into office. Recently we were able to see their work on the Combiwerk Delft work areas. Previously we’ve seen an office covered almost entirely in grey felt, as well as another with elegant black and gold embellishments.
Gummo’s space was built in 2009 as a temporary space – only to be used for two years. As such, the architects convinced the ad agency to do something that would both make a big statement as well as not be expensive. Traditionally, office projects can cost big bucks, so trying to keep the costs down for a space that isn’t going to be used long is a good idea. Another example of a temporary space is this one from Mode:lina.
The office below uses furniture purchased locally from secondhand shops, online, and items left from their previous space. Once sprayed and placed into the office, everything is placed into position against a white background giving the space a very interesting contrasting look.
