E&Y Boardroom

After making use of a full design consultation, the renowned auditing firm E&Y commissions Kinzo in cooperation with Aukett&Heese to design the nucleus furniture piece of their New Berlin headquarter: the conference table for the boardroom. The result is a special object that combines multiple characteristics, such as its dynamic appearance, an unconventional supporting structure and intelligent functionality in a single velvety piece of handmade furniture.

Derived from the form of the boardroom at the top of the building’s unusual nose, the shape of the table does not evoke the usual conference situation at all. In fact, a dry business meeting starts to become a dive on a deep-water ray.

We have often fallen flat on our faces: but the risk has paid off and Kinzo has undergone an incredible evolution.

We always think three-dimensionally. It’s always about form, function and construction. Everything has to blend harmoniously, everything has to fit!

The three of us have worked well together ever since we were students. And it was always clear to us that architecture doesn’t stop at the doorstep.

Our concept of design and architecture is fun-packed and doesn’t shy away from the risk of innovative and unusual approaches!
