Bruce Bolander Revamps The Chicago Branch of ‘The Whitehouse Post’ With a Little Help From Modernica
Modernica’s favorite designer Bruce Bolander and his recent project; the Chicago office of the international company, The Whitehouse Post.
The Whitehouse Post is a film editing company that was founded in London in a little white house. Fast forward 20 years, they now have offices all over the world, including this Chicago office, featured here, and designed by Los Angeles architect Bruce Bolander.
The office features 19-foot ceilings and massive windows. One of the main goals of the renovation was to bring more light into the 17,000 sq. ft. space. Bruce uses the light tone of the exposed brick, wood slats, and white epoxy floors to achieve this goal.
Adding steel desks, plywood tables, Modernica ‘Bolander’ sofas (Designed by Mr. Bolander himself), a Modernica Papa Bear Chair, and other carefully placed items complete the open, light look. Bruce’s sparse use of colors, such as the bright blue Bolander sofas, in an overall neutral environment is a very successful and appealing combination. Nice job!
