FORMA Design

The study area opens up to the atrium, sharing the light and allowing for views out in all directions. The stone backdrop to the cabinetry unites the finishes with the other stone accents throughout the apartment. The pendant glass sculpture was commissioned by the client for that location.

Can you tell me the mfr for the track light system? - Thanks very much. I'm partial to the stemmed components!

The track system was installed by the developer prior to the renovation, so unfortunately no further information was available.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Working with the clients' stunning art collection was one of Charalambous's favorite parts about this project. This handblown glass sculpture was gently hung in the atrium near the study suite, where it catches and reflects light at any time of day. Handblown glass sculpture: Graham CaldwellBuilt-in Office Desk: Millwork custom by FORMAOffice chair: Aluminum management chair by Herman Miller
Becky Harris added this to 5 Homes That Spotlight Art
A handblown glass sculpture by Graham Caldwell was placed to take advantage of the atrium's light and can be enjoyed from both levels of the condo. See the rest of this home
If you are a daydreamer: Rather than fight the tendency to daydream, embrace it. Set up your desk in a spot with a view — upstairs looking out a window (but far enough from the window that glare is not an issue) could be ideal. Or, place your desk facing out into a large room, so your eyes have somewhere to go when you glance up from your work. In a tight spot, try hanging an inspiration board, wallpaper, artwork or a mirror, and use plants to create a sense of depth.
Allison Lind Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Hide Your Home Office
If you’re lucky enough to have extra-tall ceilings, consider looking up for your new office space. You’ll need just enough height to stand comfortably. (Be sure to consult local building codes.) This particular space works beautifully with the floor-to-ceiling windows; there’s plenty of natural light to encourage a productive day at the office.

Pivot desk - could sit upon a dresser when not in use then pull out when the room is being used as an office. Dresser should be functional both as drawers for visitors and also office stuff. Then with fold down bed the room could very quickly change function from office to spare room. Or bed could be fold out sofa so it's den/office then switch to spare room.
