Desg is a design led co-working space, offering individuals and companies a modern, flexible working environment in the heart of the Welsh Capital, Cardiff. The recently refurbished two-story facility contains a variety of breakout areas, private offices, meeting rooms and amenities, which can be rented for specific periods, ranging from a single day through to several weeks or even months at the time.
Comprised of fifteen offices and three large, shared spaces, Desg is home to a broad range of different companies, ventures, and projects. Research shows that working around people doing different sorts of work helps develop your own company identity, while creating a feeling of community through collaboration. Of course, the added benefit at Desg, is that the environment is indeed a beautiful one.
Desg approached Powell with an ambitious architect’s furniture specification and a brief heavily geared towards stand-out features and products – a real head turning project. With a view to ensure a comprehensive understanding and to develop a joint vision of success, Powell’s design team visited Desg’s facility to conduct a full site survey and produce a detailed space plan. The job included the development of a large, open-plan breakout space, multiple workstations, conference rooms and reception area – to name a few. With a comprehensive brief agreed, Powell set about specifying the appropriate products, drawing from a list of long-standing, trusted suppliers – ensuring maximum value, quality, and comfort to suit the client budget.
On the lower ground, ultra-modern, slick–black desking systems with ergonomic chairs to match give a feel of real luxury. Design meets function, as all furniture oozes comfort, as well as style – with chairs having a strong ergonomic emphasis and bespoke manufactured desks. With an aesthetic that combines flexibility with quality, Desg has included adaptable furniture features in the reception area, complementing several integrated booths and a sizable custom desking unit.
High back, conference seating options and several task–chairs create workstations for those who require a more personal feeling space, without leaving the friendly, creative communal area. In every conservable way, this space ensures occupiers have the best possible platform from which to achieve their best – a creative, modern, and stylish space, with all the comfort associated luxury working, which can accommodate all sorts of work and styles of working.
Desg has invested time and money to create a facility with high–quality products and features, in what is expected to be a booming sector in the coming years, as companies and sole traders alike seek to reduce overheads and move away from traditional, expensive offices. Hotdesking and co-working spaces with high quality, impressive interiors across key locations – in lieu of large, under–utilised, and expensive permanent floorspace is certainly going to be an interesting development to watch as we come out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
