TIE UK North

Based in central Manchester, the Non profit organisation helping new business start ups called “TIE UK North” came to Design Office to fit out their new “hot” office, designed as a multipurpose office space for new start up companies.

The brief was to simply create a space that could be used by multiple users promoting innovation and ingenuity. This was achieved by starting with second hand bench desks placed on a unique metal polished floor.  All the furniture was based around simple contrasting colours to achieve a great look in the space.

Working with their IT team and introducing executive tables the build also saw an exclusive video conferencing capability installed into the space.


  • Used 1600×800 white bench desks, with complete cable management
  • Individual glazed & etched screens allowing various companies to work in the same space, whilst not interrupting one another
  • Black ergonomic 24 hour operators chairs
  • Black hard wearing visitors chairs for conferences and meetings
  • Executive meeting room table complete with video conferencing capability
