within the 865 m² of allied group’s workplace in tel aviv, paritzki & liani architects has developed a project called ‘I-office’. the main concept was to create the prototype of a furniture system that could withstand the load of existing slabs. thus, the designers needed to incorporate units to transfer the force to contiguous structural compression members and allow wide openings in the floor below, without changing the skeleton of the built environment.

two main constructive elements are anchored to the present floor: the administrative station, that is composed of HEB 1000 beam, and the T- or L-shaped private stations, which are made of HEB 700 for the table and HEB 600 for the extended portion.

the geometry of the I-beam, a shape that is usually concealed within the depth of the ceiling, is now exposed for all to see. the prototype furnishings regulate the flow of people throughout the office and separates the working spaces into private areas and guest zones. as a result, the rhythmic work and the constant sound of movement are framed in an environment of stillness.
