MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER recently moved into the top 15th and 16th floors of a historic 1920’s Sansome Street office building in San Francisco’s financial district. The creative agency and production company collaborated closely with internationally renowned architecture and design firm Gensler to create a workspace as unique as it is understated.
“At the outset, I told the Gensler team that our company’s colour comes from our work and our people,” says John Matejczyk, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director at MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER. “Rather than designing a wacky creative space, we were more interested in a well-reasoned, buttoned-up space that would provide a pedestal for the adventuresome creative work we deliver to our clients. Gensler called our work ‘precise’ and felt the design of the space should reflect that. We ended up going with the simplest palette of black and white. Further, the scheme is black on black, or white on white.”
Custom furniture for the space was provided by Material, an interior design practice owned by Lyn Matejczyk, John’s wife. Material’s specialty is salvaging existing furniture and materials, and repurposing them in a new context.
