What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Velcro? Snazzy sneakers? This guy? Well, the brand would have you know that Velcro is much more than fun and games. They're into architecture and design, too! The company's beautiful new European headquarters in Barcelona is a clean and minimalist with a few quirky touches and pops of color. Oh, lest we forget to mention, Velcro-covered walls. Luise Esalva Studio used the brand's signature material as an inspiration for unique movable wall panels and custom-made lanterns that bring out the fun and function of Velcro we all grew up loving.
The new office makes inventive use of Velcro, using it subtly and in tasteful instances--you'll find no multi-colored Velcro wall here. Red Velcro chandeliers pop against white walls and wood furnishings, while lightly colored Velcro bars zigzag along windows and conference room doors, adding a delicate shade for each room. The bars can be peeled and moved to create various levels of privacy. All together now!
