elevenfeet: concept and product design



// the studios

The Studios is the business accelerator of the University College of West-Flanders. It is a space where young people can start their business and grow.

We were asked to bring new life into the old building that used to be a jewel factory. After a thorough analysis of the demand (which is of a timely nature since The Studios will move in 2013), we created a young and playful concept and designed the interior of the building. To be able to respond to young businesses that come, grow and go we designed a modular, effective and simple system. In an instant it is possible to create new areas or reduce or expand the offices.

Using standard pallets, wire rods and butterfly nuts we created separation walls, tables, a cloakroom and a hall of fame. The pallets leave no trace on the building and can easily be used back in the transportation sector.
