Nice office murals

Maybe it’s because Design Week HQ in the middle of a refurbishment at the moment, but a couple of recent office interiors projects have particularly caught our eye.

Internet company AOL commissioned illustrator Chris Dent to create this mural in the form of a large cityscape at its Capper Street office.

The mural features 15 famous landmarks from cities around the world where AOL is based. The Shard, the Gherkin and the Eiffel Tower all pop up.

Dent, who was commissioned through the AOL Artists programme, completed the mural over 84 hours (not all in one session…) using paint pens.

Consultancy &Smith, meanwhile, has moved its office from a shipping container near Tower Bridge to an old piano warehouse in Stoke Newington.

The consultancy commissioned illustrator Supermundane (AKA Rob Lowe) to create a 7×10 foot illustration on the studio’s partition wall, which was drawn directly on with marker pens.
