Designer Peter Saville and architect David Adjaye collaborated on the new London headquarters of Kvadrat, a Danish textile company. A stunning staircase, set in a two-story industrial space, is like a bolt of lightening running the entire length of the space. It is framed by colored glass panels, which cast colored shadows over the concrete walls as the light changes throughout the day. A stunning spectrum of colored laminated glass interlayers, ranging from rich violet hues to light and airy blues, brings light and beauty to a desolate office space. The jurors commented on the clarity of the project, calling it "a strong statement made with few notes and careful editing."
