Office Floors With Distinct Personalities

Do the floors of your office have their own distinct personalities? At Getty Images in London, interior design firm Bluebottle decided to give each floor a color pattern—riffing off the idea of a color spectrum. 

"By incorporating the fire doors into the colored panels to each central core, each floor is given an identity, linked together through the spectrum of a singular color per floor, graded tonally from light to dark," the firm explained on Architizer.

Known for its vast photo library, Getty wanted to showcase the work of its best photographers in its office. But rather than take the traditional "gallery" route, the firm collaborated on a 16-meter-high collage of photographs, which it calls a "fully curated piece of illuminated art."

The designers describe it as "a mix of creative, editorial and archive images in color and black and white, juxtaposed and seemingly random, a floating exhibition of historical, abstract, [and] beautiful imagery."
