Following an extensive renovation of the old Stockholm Brewery into their new office space, Octapharma asked us to help design the building’s way finding system. The design and material application was carefully considered in order to compliment the interiors, taking inspiration from the original materials and typefaces used throughout the buildings original interiors.
Elegant, modern and bold in its expression, our solution was to introduce large scale numbers, in combination with intricate iconography (derived from our work on the Pilsner to Plasma book) and sleek, informative boards for signage. Rather than working with a set of colours, we chose copper as the main visual carrier, for its relevance in traditional beer making. The unique iconography is illustrated in a turn of the century style, which is around the time the brewery was last in use. We love the end result, as does the client and visitors to the office.
