GET TO WERK

”Postproduction is a very expensive and sensitive process,” says Alexandra Martini of Martini, Meyer – the two-year –old firm that recently designed the Berlin office of movie postproduction house Das Werk. “The clients are, in a way, very spoiled. Sometimes the jet-lagged filmmaker comes from Jakarta and says to the editor. “Just finish it. I’ll look at it in two hours. And he’ll sleep.” Because multiple functions are required of the editing suites – where people work up to 30 hours at a time – Martini and partner Henrike Meyer wanted the rooms to be flexible and comfortable. Their solution uses upholstered paneling that runs the length of one wall, over the ceiling, and down the opposite wall, extending as a floating chaise lounge. “It’s not only about having technology of the highest standards", Martini says. “If your clients feel physically comfortable, that’s a kind of service you’re providing them. It’s like a mixture between a hotel and an office.”
