A Mighty Fine Place To Create!

RAW Studios office furniture workstations meetings desk chairs

Long hours of post-production, studio filming, client walk-ins, and spontaneous meetings. These are just a few of the challenges a film production company, like Mighty Fine, deals with on a daily basis.

Our approach was to meet all the demands of a creative lab but to add a sense of style and comfort, qualities indicative of our Epik range.

This is where Raw’s talents came into play… With creative clients such as Mighty Fine challenges like these seem easy.

Take a look here at what Mighty Fine has to say…

To create a comfortable working environment, we needed to assure that there were a variety of spaces for the employees to utilize for both one-on-one meetings and group collaborative sessions. With products like our Pod , Standpoint and Hub  we created an environment where employees now have the freedom to work where and how they want. The offices were effortlessly fitted with workstations and storage, ensuring each person would have their personal space and as far as the noise levels go, we’ve cleverly supplied Mighty Fine with some of our Wallspace acoustic panels, ensuring that while meetings, socials or inhouse productions are utilizing the production floor, everyone else can still comfortably focus on their work.

Add a bit of colour and branding to the products and the whole vision of a creative hub finds its ideal form. Imagine an office where working feels like playing, with our Epik range that is no challenge at all.

What you maybe do not know is that we don’t only supply furniture but exhibition walls as well.Wallspace minimalistic modular exhibition walling system at Javett Art CentreBack in 2017 Mathews and Associates Architects approached Raw Studios to develop an exhibition system for the exciting new Javett Art Centre at the University of Pretoria. The brief was music to our ears and a chance to challenge ourselves. In the end, we in collaboration with Journeyman Collective designed and manufactured a walling system, which is suitable for the exquisite Art Centre but also true to our values.

Everyone knows by now that open plan offices are bad news, and for good reason! No one wants to be in a space where work becomes a battlefield of distractions vying for your attention: Sally’s loud chatter about last night’s date, Thabo’s ridiculous morning smoker’s-cough routine or the umpteenth courier scuffling past with yet another delivery for Valentine’s – – to name just a few.
