    Living Edge's recently opened Brisbane 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, Living Edge has created 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,’ Company CEO Aidan Mawhinney said.

    ‘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, whose portfolio of work includes other high-end James Street precinct businesses, 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 sub-tropical planting enhances the sense of place and softens an otherwise minimal aesthetic. 

    “Living Edge, as the name suggests, is a living showroom where the furniture is put to use for work and play, for staff, clients, and their guests,” says Spence. “Much more than a showroom, Living Edge is at once a working office, training venue, and event space.”

    Living Edge also houses the showroom of flooring company Tongue N Groove, who's custom-built showroom sits within the Living Edge Commercial Floor.
