Benoit Challand is a creative image maker focused on digital art, 3D illustration and typography. His work encompasses a large range of 3D field creation, design, CGI retouch and illustration. He finds his inspiration in everything that surrounds him, especially in design and architecture.
In one of its projects, Benoit Challand gives new life to the open office system by converting desks into typography inspired cubicles. Every desk in his office is shaped as a different letter of the alphabet, transforming the archetypal workspaces into large-scale alphabetical sculptures. Challand aims to change the monotonous image of the office by making the space more fun and surprising.
The open office has come under fire of late. Research says it’s bad for productivity and it might even make us sick. And monotonous, boxy cubicles don’t do much by way of visual inspiration. But a design by French creative Benoit Challand might make you think different. In his concept for Fold Yard, every desk in an open office is shaped as a different letter of the alphabet. This typography turned into functional furniture celebrates the beauty of the large-scale letterform. The letters’ shapes are abstracted unless viewed from above, when they spell out words or phrases. – wrote out by CareyDunne on Fastcodesign.com
