3000 Collection: Callaborative Work Pods
Furniture and Lighting
- Michael Alvisse + Marc Schamburg
National Australia Bank
Commissioned by National Australia Bank for its new global headquarters in Melbourne, the 3000 Collection is the result of close collaboration between NAB, architect Woods Bagot, manufacturer Zenith and designers Marc Schamburg + Michael Alvisse.
When invited to bid for NAB’s collaborative furniture tender, Alvisse asked Woods Bagot, one of the world’s top 10 workplace designers, why they were inviting his small Australian design studio to bid for this coveted project? It was no secret that global furniture giants Herman Miller, Steelcase + Unifor were competing aggressively for this lucrative tender!
Woods Bagot replied that NAB needed tech-smart collaborative furniture that simply did not exist globally.
