Double Negative is considered to be Europe’s largest provider of visual effects for film. They turned to MCM Architecture to fit-out their new purpose-driven location at 160 Great Portland St. The objective for this project was to keep the artists in a suitable and flexible environment, whilst accommodating the high level of IT infrastructure required to produce award-winning visual effects.
During the tender process, it became apparent that Humanscale and DAS could not only provide the best functionality, but most favourable aesthetics. Humanscale’s M/Flex multi-screen monitor arm and DAS’ Optima Air desk worked harmoniously together, ensuring Double Negative received the perfect workspace solution.
Among the first truly scalable monitor arms, M/Flex was used on all desks to offer ultimate flexibility for the workforce, enabling staff to increase or reduce the number of screens by simply adding or taking away from the modular system, making this a cost-effective and sustainable solution.
M/Flex worked cohesively with the Optima Air desk which features an innovative sliding top enabling easy access to cables. The Optima Air desk features a fan coil unit built within the desk, which facilitates a world-class heat management solution.
M/Flex is a product that weighs little, requiring few raw materials. It is also made from recyclable aluminium, a robust product with a lifetime guarantee. Optima Air is of equal ‘green’ merit. With a sustainable, durable design, the desk can offer market-leading water-cooled systems with a reduced need to make expensive changes.
