A artwork on rights for the lawyers’ office in Brussels

Location :
Lawyers’ office, Brussels

The Lawyers’ office was built with extensive glass use for each of the lawyers’ specific rooms, which created a beautiful and decorative environment, but does not provide enough intimacy for each person.

We were asked to invent a way to create this intimacy by partially obliterating the glass walls. We decided to adopt a participatory methodology applicable to law firms.

The concept was to create a main theme and design around which all the 27 lawyers would participate and choose specific quotes related to justice, love, or utopia.  Then, each office glass wall would receive a particular design using the text chosen by the lawyer, combined with one or more images related to the concept. Unfortunately, due to interned management reasons, the project was not built.
