Events planner’s ! home office
Nilufar Pulatova | Jacqueline Tamm | Isabel Nilsson Interior Design Academic, Semester II
Client description and “wish list” Our client, Viola, is a young woman in her thirties who organizes events from birthday parties to corporate gatherings. Viola lives in Florence, Italy in one of the historic buildings with a very high ceiling – 4.5m. She dedicated one room in her home to her event planning business. This room is used only for business purposes – she does not use it as her living room. Any video material related to events is viewed on her computer. On as-needed basis Viola hires an assistant who works closely with her. For this reason, our client asked for a table that would allow them to work together. As part of her job our client needs to meet with her clients in her office and will need a comfortable meeting area. Since there is a seasonality associated with events that Viola plans, she needs a storage area for things that are not used on a regular basis. In addition to this, she would like to have an area for displaying objects.

Home office desk: joinery and materials The home desk is designed to have a long working space for 2 people - our client and her assistant who comes to help on as needed basis). Since our client often works on more than one event, the long desk is very useful for laying out paperwork potentially related to different projects. The table will be covered with 2 pieces of float sheet glass. The central part of the desk is supported by 60 cm wide drawer cabinets made of the same natural wood material for a frame and laminated plywood for a drawer bottoms. We will use dovetail joints for a construction of drawers which will slide to open on side mount drawer slides. Above the table we are placing a shelf constructed of the same wood material as the desk for displaying beautiful objects. The shelf is supported by 6 metal shelf supports. Under the shelf we will place 4 underthe-shelf lights. Table top material: The desk is made of 4 pieces of 1.5m long natural wood boards joined together using dowel joints.
