“我们的每个项目都独一无二。我们热爱将新老元素混搭,通过运用自然的材料来打造具有民族特色的质感。在Fosbury & Sons的空间中,我们为其设计了更多独特的订制品。例如吧台是由100%的环保砖和纤维玻璃制成的。”Anaïs Torfs说道。Fosbury & Sons的室内设计试图打造一种纽约高线公园的感觉。当人们每次走进这个空间都可以发现一些不同的东西,一条新的路线,或者一个新的空间角落。Going East专注于打造一个充满呼吸感的空间并尽量避免传统的办公室氛围。

Anaïs Torfs说:“在这里你可以在工作之余在酒吧休息片刻,在植物边工作,坐在图书管立面或者是在Aster椅子上躺下休息,欣赏大阶梯的景观,在这里,自由尤其重要。”房间和墙面装饰艺术品来源于安特卫普的PLUS-ONE画廊,Sofie Van De Velde和布鲁塞尔画廊Veerle Verbakel。建筑内还有Serge Hannecart的私人永久收藏品,展览了艺术家Damien Hirst和Fabre的作品以及一些古董家具。

The interior of Fosbury & Sons intends to leave you with a kind of High Line (New York) – like feeling. When walking around at Fosbury & Sons, you can take different types of walks and discover something new each time.

In addition, this new way of working can partly solve the mobility issue. This way, employees don’t have to commute to the head office every day, but they can still work with colleagues in a professional environment. Fosbury & Sons offers an inspiring answer to that grey office and look-alike work mentality. Collaborations outside the boundaries of companies, literally and figuratively, allow for flexibility and entrepreneurship – with the necessary portion of entertainment.

Fosbury & Sons provides the working man and woman with tools to better juggle their work-life balance. Useful professional services, educational lectures and fun events raise your quality of life during or after work. A quality work environment that inspires both before, during and after work.”With Fosbury & Sons, we want to meet the needs of today’s generation. Today’s employee or freelancer wants a perfect work-life balance. With us, he will find a professional work place including useful services that will raise the quality of his (working) life.” – Maarten Van Gool.

Fosbury & Sons offers 3000 m2 of creative energy on the first floor of
the WATT Tower. The impressive plateau is supported by concrete columns and the 6 meter high windows overlook the King Albert park landscape. The pioneering Antwerp design office, Going East, founded by interior designers Anaïs Torfs and Michiel Mertens, turned the creative hub into a professional interior with a mature appearance.

“We create a unique setting per project. We love a mix between old and new, by using natural materials in combination with an ethnic touch. There is a lot of customization in Fosbury & Sons in particular. Customizing often also means experimenting. The bar for instance is built completely of 100% recycled bricks and fibreglass.” – Anaïs Torfs. 
The interior of Fosbury & Sons intends to leave you with a kind of High Line (New York) – like feeling. When walking around at Fosbury & Sons, you can take different types of walks and discover something new each time. A new route, a new bit of space. Going East focused on that greatness and breathing space to avoid the typical feeling of a classic office.

“Here you can pause at the bar during a “walk”, work at the plants, sit in the library, lie down in the Aster seat, enjoy the view on the steps… That freedom is important.” – Anaïs Torfs The rooms and walls are decorated with art in collaboration with the Antwerp-based PLUS-ONE gallery, Sofie Van De Velde and Brussels- based gallery Veerle Verbakel. They are also curating and rotating the art. In addition, there is a permanent private collection of Serge Hannecart, ranging from the art of Damien Hirst and Fabre to vintage furniture.

“A shift is lurking in society’s perception of ‘working’. This translates into autonomy, commitment and a sense of purpose. ‘Time’ is our most precious asset. Let’s make our time our own again.” – Stijn Geeraets
