Living Edge has unveiled its new multi-functional showroom and office space in Brisbane – located in the city’s vibrant centre of Fortitude Valley at 171 Robertson Street. Highly regarded for its commitment to authenticity in design, the brand has launched in a custom-built space that has already made a huge impact on the Brisbane architecture and design communities.

The showroom features a first floor level dedicated to a living, breathing, functioning office and custom event space. By combining their commercial showroom and working office requirements, the second floor features a fully functioning office space that shows a wide range of Living Edge commercial products in action.

‘By working with architects and interior designers who specialise in workspace design, along with the research from Herman Miller’s Living Office initiative, we’ve been able to create a living, breathing showroom that allows our commercial customers to see, touch and experience the products as they are intended – not just on display. It’s an innovative way to present workplace product, and one that ultimately benefits our clients,’ says Living Edge CEO Aidan Mawhinney.

‘When a designer makes the right furniture choices tailored to their client’s needs, everyone wins. Our Living Office helps to explain that choice for the client. That is what we are focussed on facilitating in our commercial business.’ Mawhinney said. Designed by respected Brisbane architects Richards & Spence, the Living Edge showroom also functions as a two-story function space.

Architect Adrian Spence says the showroom has been designed to allow for a variety of spaces at different scales. “A hierarchy of volumes allows for display and occupation,” he says. “High and low, large and small, internal and external spaces deliver multiple experiences and vantages for one or many.”

A palette of materials is deliberately restrained in deference to the beautiful furniture on display. Concrete and white masonry is used inside and out and subtropical planting enhances the sense of place and softens an otherwise minimal aesthetic.
