To meet the needs of a creative media agency in a 6,000 square foot warehouse, Edward Ogosta Architecture of Los Angeles felt it couldn't leave the furnishings and interior design to chance, so it built them in. The architects came up with "a menagerie of typological hybrids" which create an inner world, reference nature and up the intensity for the creatives working at the idiosyncratic company. The hybrids range from bookshelf-arena ("book-arena") to tree-chair, mountain-office, house-table and cave-bed. If the idea is to upend conventional office forms and therefore thinking, it is an intriguing one. Now, I must get back to my chair-uh-chair.
