Wates London


London, UK

Working in partnership with A&Q Architects, and building on the success of previous projects, Boss Design provided furniture for the Wates Group, as one of the Group’s preferred suppliers of corporate furniture.

The Wates Group, one of the UK’s largest privately-owned construction, development and property services companies, recently opened a new central London office, set over two floors, incorporating a boardroom, several meeting rooms, individual working spaces and breakout areas. Boss Design worked closely with Wates to provide a range of furniture to seamlessly fit into each of these areas.

Distinguished and Refined

Designed to accommodate large meetings and a variety of functional requirements, Boss Design’s distinguished and refined Deploy table was the perfect choice for Wates’ 16 seater boardroom. Four integrated power and data stations down the centre of the table provided various charging points, as well as access to the conference call system and a large TV screen for presentations and video conference calls.

Slim line design

In the smaller meeting rooms, Boss Design’s Pegasus table was chosen in Oak with chrome legs in various sizes, both circular or rectangular, depending on the size of the room. Pegasus’ slim line design is ideal for smaller meeting rooms where space is often at a premium. The tables were once again specified with integrated power and data, as well as a cable management system to keep trailing wires organised.

Breakout areas

In the breakout areas across both floors, several Myriad seating units were chosen in bright colourways, standing out against the workspace’s white walls. Completely flexible and reconfigurable, Myriad offers infinite possibilities, with the option of integrated power and data.

It is easy to mix and match the Myriad range with other products from across the Boss Design portfolio. Wates took advantage of this, complimenting the Myriad chains with several Reef tables. The Reef tables were chosen with a white circular top and black base, in various heights. Both products worked together to encourage spontaneous meetings between colleagues, as well as providing a touch down area for phone calls or work away from the desk.

Informal meetings

Boss Design’s Agent dining table and benches were chosen for a separate breakout area closer to the upstairs kitchenette. This provided a space for employees to refuel during the day as well as an area for more informal meetings.

Boss Design also provided bespoke banquette seating in the main kitchen area, providing comfort for staff as well as being easy to keep clean and maintain, which is of utmost importance in well used staff breakout spaces.
