In Melbourne’s Docklands, Bates Smart has included Poliform’s Grace Dining chair in its design for legal firm Maddocks. The project is a beautiful response to a diverse workplace that balances commercial and collegial life.  

Timber ceiling and floors and striking landscaped greenery, contribute to the feeling of retreat that bridges discrete zones of inside and outside. This liminality is unusual in the corporate space, but it's in these unprogrammed in-between spaces that innovations brew, and inspiration arises.
