  • Bluesky Design was engaged by premium bed manufacturer, Harrison Spinks, to design their headquarters and showroom located in Leeds, England.

    In 2016, Harrison Spinks purchased a 1980’s former technical college building adjacent to their existing manufacturing facility in Leeds with the vision of transforming it into a new head office and showroom for their premium mattress business.

    Bluesky Design were appointed to carry out the workplace analysis and design concept development for the new facility which required extensive refurbishment and strip-out prior to commencing the internal fit-out.

    Our brief for the interior was to create a space reflecting Harrison Spinks’ heritage and status as industry leaders while also celebrating their commitment to sustainability and innovation.

    As well as providing new office accommodation for 90 staff, the head office would also act as a showroom providing a brand experience for visitors. A bright, double height reception with relaxed lounge and refreshment area provides a welcoming space for visitors leads to an open showroom to showcase product and deliver training to customers. Meeting rooms of various sizes as well as a number of informal meeting and quiet working spaces provide additional staff facilities, with breakout areas shared by office and warehouse staff encouraging people to get together at communal tables.

    A subtle, refined colour palette was selected based on existing brand guidelines but accentuated with natural textures and finishes such as the timber clad reception wall that reflects the natural environment of the farm owned Harrison Spinks.
