RSM – a global accounting, tax and consulting company – approached Lotus to provide a bespoke solution for their Perth office. The completed space is expertly designed and highly functional, featuring Opera Switch, incorporating Switchglass technology which delivers a fantastic level of flexibility across a range of applications.
The project area included a large room at RSM which is used both for meetings and as a collaborative workspace. The room required both dividing and perimeter walls/doors, as well as a solution that allowed for both undisrupted views across the office and privacy when required. There were also high acoustic requirements for this space, given it is adjacent to an open lounge and visitor waiting area.
We introduced Switchglass technology to achieve this, allowing the glass panels in the perimeter doors to transition between transparent or opaque frosted glass at the push of a button. When in transparent mode, this technology allows for maximum light transfer from one space to another, ensuring that the office looks spacious and the window views can be enjoyed from any angle. In opaque mode, the glass panels provide privacy and enable a distraction free work environment when it’s required.
