Leading PR and marketing company Chameleon are now officially at the top of our leaderboard in terms of the number of offices we’ve designed and fitted out for a client!
Moving from Paddington back into The City, the new space was light and bright and just needed us to create 2 large meeting rooms and a breakout area as the rest was ready to go. Whilst the works were going on, the client had so much trust in ei2 Interiors to complete the project on time and handle any last minute questions of design their whole company went on a weeks annual training in Greece! Needless to say on their return the new offices were ready and the staff walked straight in to their new workplace and sat down to start working.
"Our pre Christmas move to London Bridge was the third move exercise we have worked with ei2 Interiors on. We simply wouldn't work with anyone else. Richard and his team, yet again, provided us with a seamless, trouble free, end to end service. Working with an old warehouse building can deliver various challenges but none were insurmountable for ei2 Interiors. While we enjoyed our end of year off site in Athens for two days Richard and his team finished the office which was up and running for Monday morning together with a Christmas tree!!"

Our long running client Beazley's came to us to design their new Paris office. Supplying furniture and helping create a design was a challenge that paid off in this fantastic building. The office is vibrant, colourful and full of life.
We have been working with London Executive Offices for many years now and carry out a lot of work in their flagship office at No1 Cornhill located directly opposite the Bank of England in the heart of the City.
This project involved deep refurbishment of a former large meeting room to create this wonderful top end breakout space. Working in the lower basement the project was not without difficulties (the floor had to be laid twice) and there were many difficult angles to content with, however end result was stunning. ei2 Interiors carried out the refurbishment and supplied and installed the kitchen, Design by the LEO designer and furniture by The Furniture Practice.
As with many of our clients when Your World Recruitment told us they had out grown their existing offices and were looking for 4 times the space we jumped at the opportunity to work with them again! The brief was to design and plan a light, bright funky workplace for their young dynamic team. We started with a blank canvas on an empty floor in the prestigious Broadgate Tower building near to Liverpool Street, and created a large open plan workspace at one end, internal and external meeting rooms, large spacious reception area, tea point and break out space including 'play room' and executive offices. The project took just 12 weeks from initial drawings to completion on site.
"ei2 Interiors took on the refurbishment of our new London office with a dynamic can do attitude. They understood the brief and made, where necessary, suggestions and improvements. The team is headed up by Richard Davall, an experienced and knowledgeable individual who always goes that extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. Although the deadlines we imposed were tight they were met on each and every occasion. The team Richard uses are courteous, considerate and hard-working and nothing seems too much trouble.
From design to conception I can’t recommend ei2 enough, they certainly took away the stress and trouble, and the results ? well they speak for themselves………. a dream office!"

When Multimedia company Nativ moved to large offices they came to us.
Working through each stage of the design from the space planning through to visiting supplier’s showrooms ei2 Interiors helped create a vibrant, light and practical working space.
Glass fronted meeting rooms were constructed, new air conditioning and lighting installed and a stylish teapoint fitted. The reception desk and canteen furniture we’re bespoke and made to the client’s requirements.
We are always very happy when we get introduced to new clients via our existing clients as I guess it means we did a good Job! This was the case with SMG. Having seen the offices of Chameleon PR in Paddington the two directors got talking and our details were passed on with ‘high’ recommendations.
We first met with Jeremy Michael in July 2013 and quickly struck up a good relationship seeing eye to eye and understanding his rapidly growing business. The space he had agreed to take in St Albans was light and bright and spacious for his needs. We quickly drew up some initial plans for the space and over 3-4 revisions agreed the final layout.
The project consisted of 3 meeting rooms, reception area and kitchen. SMG’s great corporate colours and brand identity were exciting to work with and made the project very memorable. We very much look forward to SMG’s future growth.
"Richard and his team at ei2 interiors were recommended to us by our clients ‘Chameleon PR’ whose offices ei2 interiors fitted out a couple of years ago. SMG has a strong corporate design and uses vivid colours and we were pleased that ei2 were able to incorporate these important elements into our new office design. ei2 designed the office space, and Richard and his team were on call to discuss any queries or amendments.
We have also been glad of Richard’s ongoing advice and recommendations – his consultative approach and flexibility have been very much appreciated’.
I am extremely pleased with the end results and would have no hesitation in recommending ei2 to anyone looking to redesign their offices."
Managing Director, SMG
The 1922 Clothing Company came to us, with a vision to transform their two floors into what would become a functional, well designed office and meeting room space. We worked hard with 1922 to make sure that we could give them exactly what they wanted, and to that point we designed a lot of bespoke furniture that fits the needs of the office and the needs of everyone at 1922. This stylish office runs with a charcoal and white theme seen in the charcoal undersided desks, and charcoal back panels in the storage units.
Having already furnished 3 floors of Plantation Place South back in 2006 when Beazley originally moved into the building working with international architect Genzler, when the next floor came up we were once again chosen to supply all the loose furnishings.
Working this time with EDGE Architecture + Design the floor had some new products and designs but mainly continued to reflect the quality of Beazley’s other 3 floors which we fitted out back in 2005.
The project consisted of 200+ Techo workstations with Knoll Generation chairs and Werner storage. 6 internal meeting rooms, large breakout area and numerous meeting points set around the floor interspersed between the workstations.
Meeting room furniture was Zon tables on a sleek stainless steel base and Eames chairs. Beazley opted for the new Werner 2m sliding door cupboard with soft close which fitted on the end of the banks of workstations and provides both storage and partial screening to the walkways.
"Richard is very resourceful and, from his knowledge and experience, is able to work from the smallest of briefs. ei2 Interiors are able to offer different options depending on the requirement - be it style, price restrictions or speed of mobilisation and implementation. Richard project manages the majority of the works himself and the attention to detail and customer service is impeccable. This allows me to concentrate on managing my time and attention on other responsibilities in the knowledge that any unforeseen issues will be appropriately dealt with and the job handed over on time on or below budget.
No matter how large or small, the job receives the same attention to detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending ei2 Interiors to any prospective company and would welcome them to view any works that have been completed by ei2 Interiors at Beazley’s Head Office in the City of London."

Having fitted out Ocean Dusk’s previous office back in 2005 we were delighted when CEO Wasim asked us to be involved in their new London headquarters. Based in the heart of Battersea the space was taken as a ‘shell’ and took just 12 weeks to turn from building site to A1 office space ready for occupation. We were given a free hand in the design and the client loved all our ideas especially if they involved yellow!
The project consisted of full AC and heating installation, raised access floors, creation of toilets, meeting rooms and cellular offices.
The project was topped off by a yellow stripe in the carpet the entire length of the office.
After many hours of design and a lot of working with Nova Founders, together we came up with this modern yet stylishly designed office. With black herringbone flooring and white storage and desking, this office feels bold and new.
We were introduced to the Global medial company Ooyala when it acquired Nativ in 2016.
The works we carried out for them consisted of a refurbishment of their new London Headquarters in Shaftesbury Avenue.
The layout was designed by ei2 Interiors working closely with their US head of facilities
The works consisted of re-modelling the existing offices and meeting room, opening up the tea point into a larger break out area and re-carpeting and decorating throughout.
