my scandinavian home: Workspace inspiration: an industrial style collaborative space

Workspace inspiration: an industrial style collaborative space

Wednesday, 22 June 2016

The other day I went to look at an amazing creative work space here in Malmö. It was in an old factory with a black and white flagstone floor and formerly used as a boxing ring. Unfortunately the timing just wasn't quite right, but at some point in the near future I'd absolutely love to work in an industrial-style shared work space with other creatives like the one I stumbled upon. The Forge in Bristol, England fits the bill quite nicely in fact- and although in the wrong country, it would be an inspiring venue for an event, workshop or just getting together with others and coming up with new ideas! Absolutely loving the exposed bricks, spiral staircase and general relaxed feel of the space. Would it even feel like work if this was your studio?!











The Forge. Source: Found via Desire to Inspire with thanks.  

I am trying to dream up an event now, just so that I can hang out there for a few days there. Any ideas?  Blog workshop perhaps? See you there!

Get the look: DSR chair, source a vintage metal jug here, white sheepskin throw, this industrial floor light is similar, vintage crates.

How lovely is this vintage industrial swivel chair? Because.

Other fab studios and ateliers include the creative studio of Katrin Bååth, the home and studio of a Danish carpenter, and the fabulous studio of an interior designer. Imagine if your office looked like this? And if it already does....pictures please!

Have a lovely day!

PS One word you should never use at work.  Agree or disagree?

  5. I love exposed brick, so I would say the workspace is beautiful enough to live in.

    And thanks for the pointer to the Ellen Petry Leance's observation. I would say she is 100% right and I have made a resolution to myself to pay attention to my own usage. Thanks Niki!
