TOPP's Globular Office

Yesterday's lights by Rejuvenation reminded me of this office I ran across on Design*Sponge.


this space houses the offices of the open planning project (topp) – a nonprofit founded by mark gorton, which develops tech tools for mapping and geospacial applications.

I love the use of globes and globe shapes to echo the function of the organization!





The designers, Ashley DeVries and Christine Dalsass, say:
We used a globe/mapping theme throughout the office, since it relates so closely to Topp's work. Almost all of the globes we used are vintage and each one is different. There are about 500 globes in the office, and we are always buying more!

i like that they did a different take on the industrial cart coffee table by putting a glass top on it.

I love the mail slot piece, globe collection, and coffee table.

yeah, the mail slot piece is really great! that's not something I have seen before but it works really nicely. They have a big space though, some of that would be harder to pull off in a smaller place.

Awesome. I'd love to work in an office that looked like that.
Have you seen the new fall collection at Restoration Hardware? I got their catalog today. They're doing some cool historical reproduction pieces. There's something on every page that I want.

That's so odd that Grace would post this. I thought that she hated Steampunk!
