CCWS Interiors transforms the working environment at the London offices of men’s health charity Movember Foundation
What could be more masculine than wood. From the functionality of a garden shed to the luxurious walnut trim of a classic car, men feel comfortable with the honesty of wood in all its forms.
It is fitting then that this material is such a feature of the new design created by CCWS Interiors for the London offices of the global men’s heath charity Movember Foundation.
Earlier this year, Movember Foundation asked CCWS Interiors to create an environment that better matched the charity’s people, brand and culture, with ﬂexible office space that could be scaled up or down in line with campaign periods.
Over six weeks, CCWS re-configured the office space, replacing the traditional concept of ‘one desk, one employee’ with an interactive co-working model featuring ﬂexible workspaces, hot desks, hot-booth meeting areas for collaboration and semi-enclosed booths for more private work.
For the interior design, CCWS Interiors chose industrial design elements, like rustic wood cladding and exposed metal fixtures, alongside playful detailing. Much of this relates to Movember Foundation’s signature ‘moustache’ symbol, including naming rooms after famous moustache owners like Charlie Chaplin, Freddie Mercury and Albert Einstein.
Movember Foundation, the leading charity for men’s health, helps address some of the biggest health issues faced by men including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention. In 15 years, the not-for-profit organisation has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world, as it seeks to cut the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
