Eslava&Sauras of Valencia has redesigned the European headquarters of Velcro in Barcelona, using the brand's handy hook-and-loop fasteners to construct flexible screens and lampshades (+ slideshow).

"We wanted to convey the new values of the Velcro brand through the use of open, transparent spaces," explain designers Luis Eslava and Lorena Sauras."The goal was to achieve a creative, modern, and dynamic environment, including movable walls that combine spaces and a bright, upbeat atmosphere where white dominates a few splashes of colour."

The designers used a spherical mould to build the red globe-like Velcro lampshades, which hang in the corridor and reception spaces.

Glass screens separate the reception from a small exhibition area, while Velcro pads on the wall display a map of the world.

Planting boxes line the edge of the long corridor, leading through to a row of three glazed conference rooms.

Here, the designers have used Velcro strips to create semi-transparent screens that can be easily adapted or moved to provide more or less privacy.

    I'm guessing there's a no-woolly-jumpers-in-the-office policy.

    I like the glass but the cheap furniture finish makes the overall worse.

    And the horrible ceilings!
