The hip, smart folks at Potamus Trading wanted their new office fit-out to reflect their youthful spirit. The space was conceived as a Sub-Saharan encampment, using ceiling trellises as the fly portion of tents and raw ceilings as the sky and surrounding environment. Fully indirect lighting creates the sky portion, while targeted track heads, concealed between the trellises, create drama and contrast.
