Leading PR and marketing company Chameleon are now officially at the top of our leader board in terms of the number of offices we’ve designed and fitted out for a client!
Moving back from Paddington into The City, their new space was bright and spacious and gave us the perfect canvas to create two large meeting rooms and a relaxed breakout area; the rest of the facility was ready to go. While the works were going on, the client held so much trust in ei2 Interiors to complete the project on time and handle any last minute questions on the design that their whole company went on a week’s annual training in Greece! Needless to say that on their return the new offices had been completed and were now ready to be used. The staff were able to walk straight into their new quirky workplace and start their day’s work.
"Our pre Christmas move to London Bridge was the third time we have worked with ei2 Interiors, when moving offices. We simply wouldn’t work with anyone else! Yet again Richard and his team provided us with a seamless and trouble free, end to end service. Evidently, working with an old warehouse building can deliver various challenges but ei2 Interiors overcame all the challenges faced. While we enjoyed our end of year training in Athens for two days, Richard and his team finished the office for it to be up and running for Monday morning together with a Christmas tree!!"

Our long running client Beazley came looking to us to design their new Paris office. The hard work needed both to create an exclusive design and supply the furniture along with it was a challenge that paid off in this fantastic facility. ei2 Interior’s work has shaped this office to be full of life with its vibrant and innovative design.
We have been working with London Executive Offices for many years now and carry out a lot of work in their flagship office at No.1 Cornhill, located directly opposite the Bank of England in the heart of the City.
This project involved thorough refurbishment of a former large meeting room in order create this sophisticated breakout space. Due to working in the lower basement the project was not without difficulties including the fact that the floor had to be laid twice and we had to contend with many different angles.
However the end result proved to be stunning. Working with the LEO designer and The Furniture Practice, ei2 Interiors carried out the refurbishment and installation of the kitchen
As with many of our clients, when Your World Recruitment told us they had out grown their existing offices and were looking for somewhere with four times the space we jumped at the opportunity to work with them again!
The given brief inspired us to design a vibrant, contemporary workplace for their young and dynamic team. In the distinguished Broadgate Tower, near to Liverpool Street, we began work on what was, then, a blank canvas. At one end we established a large open plan workspace equipped with internal and external meeting rooms and a spacious reception area. At the opposite end, a relaxed breakout space with a “playroom”, a tea point and several executive offices were installed. The project took just 12 weeks from the initial drawings to the final completion on site.
"ei2 Interiors took on the refurbishment of our new London office with an encouragingly positive attitude. They understood the brief and made, where necessary, suggestions and improvements. The team was led 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 the Multimedia company: Nativ decided to move to larger offices, they came to us to design them.
Working through each stage of the design from the space planning through to visiting the supplier’s showrooms, ei2 Interiors helped create a vibrant yet practical working space.
We installed glass fronted meeting rooms fitted with new air conditioning, lighting and a stylish teapoint. The reception desk and canteen furniture were bespoke to the client’s requirements to produce Nativ’s ideal office.
We are always pleased when new clients approach us from being recommended by our existing customers. This was the case with the company SMG after having seen the offices we had designed for Chameleon PR in Paddington.
We first met with Jeremy Michael in July 2013 where we immediately could see eye to eye and understand his rapidly growing business in order to design the best office his company. Their new space in St Albans fitted their needs as it was light and spacious. We quickly drew up some initial plans for the space and after a few revisions agreed the final layout.
The project consisted of three meeting rooms, a reception area and a kitchen. SMG’s corporate colours representing their brand’s identity were an exciting stimulus to work with. We look forward to SMG’s future growth and development.
"Richard and his team at ei2 interiors were recommended to us by our clients ‘Chameleon PR’ whose offices ei2 had been fitted out by them a couple of years ago. SMG has a strong corporate design and uses vivid colours therefore we were pleased when ei2 were able to incorporate these important elements into our new office design. During the project, 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, along with his consultative approach and flexibility have both 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 clothing company: 1922 came to us with a vision to transform their two floors into what would become a functional and well-designed office and meeting room space. We worked hard with 1922 to make sure that we could give them exactly what they wanted to the point that we designed a lot of bespoke furniture that would uniquely fit the requirements of 1922 and their office. This sleek and stylish office runs with a charcoal and white theme which is seen in the charcoal under-sided desks and the storage units’ charcoal back panels.
Having already furnished three floors of Plantation Place South for Beazley back in 2006, when the next floor needed to be refurbished we were once again chosen for the job.
Working this time with EDGE Architecture + Design, the floor had some new designs and products but of course held the same quality of the other floors.
The project consisted of more than 200 Techo workstations fitted with Knoll Generation chairs and Werner storage. Interspersed between the workstations we installed six meeting rooms, a breakout area and meeting points.
For the meeting room’s furniture, we used Zon tables-with stainless steel bases- and Eames chairs. Regarding storage, Beazley opted for the new Werner 2m sliding door cupboard with soft close which fitted on the end of the workstations. They provide 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.
"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 designing their new London headquarters. Based in the heart of Battersea, the space started off as a deserted ‘shell’. ei2 Interiors took just 12 weeks to turn this empty building site into a sleek and sophisticated A1 office space, ready for occupation. The client held so much trust in ei2 Interiors that we were given a free hand in the design. The client loved all our ideas especially if they involved yellow!
The project consisted of full AC and heating installation, raised access floors, establishment of toilets along with meeting rooms and cellular offices.
To top the project off, we added a yellow stripe along the entire length of the office’s carpet to boldly reflect Ocean Dusk’s corporate colour.
After many hours of brain-storming with the global internet investment company: Nova Founders, we came up with this understated yet sophisticated office. With its lustrous surfaces, black herringbone flooring and contrasting white storage and desks, this office feels vivid and contemporary.
We were introduced to the Global media company Ooyala when we were recommended by Nativ to them in 2016.
We carried out the refurbishment of their new London Headquarters based in Shaftesbury Avenue.
ei2 Interiors worked closely with Ooyala’s US Head of Facilities to design the perfect layout.
The work consisted of re-constructing the existing offices and meeting room in order to open up the tea point into a larger break out area and, re-carpeting and decorating throughout the facility
