New Bamboo Office by Kyla Bidgood
Talented interior designer Kyla Bidgood has recently added another beautiful project to her portfolio. This time she has designed a new office space for London-based development agency New Bamboo, which uses Ruby on Rails for its bespoke projects.
“New Bamboo supports a staff of talented developers and engineers living and working in one of the greatest cities in the world. There was no question their space had to be robustly inspiring and conducive to building a high performance product. They are an incredibly bright, tight knit group who needed space to come together as well as areas to focus. Hard work and fun play equally important parts of their culture, and their space needed to reflect this unique balance. Given they spend their day creative problem solving, it seemed fitting the work of Charles & Ray Eames would have a strong influence on this project. Their shared values of process, development, and play can be seen in the simple geometries, bold colour pallet, basic materials and furnishings with a retro mid century vibe. To help communicate this theme we collaborated with Sarah MacNeill of Carte Studio to create the instruction manual-like graphics, incorporating meaningful lines of proprietary code written by the engineers themselves. This repetitive geometry theme is carried throughout, in the carpet tile installations, 3D wood block break room wall and interlocking bamboo feature in the open office,” says Kyla Bidgood
