Bennett Interior Design has completed the interior design of London’s recently opened Swiss Re building, popularly known as the Gherkin. The interior boasts 20 000m2 of dealing floors, conference space, a 32-seat boardroom, a video conference room and a 100-seat lecture theatre. Bennett sought to harmonise the diverse range of financial services conducted within the building using a ‘monochromatic colour scheme to create a degree of consistency’, says Richard Beastall, Bennett Interior Design partner. To emphasis a ‘calm circular core’ materials have been selected from natural colours. Consequently, furnishings include: white painted walls, powder-finished white ceilings and grey carpets. ‘In Zurich they believe that it’s people who add colour,’ he adds.
