Global law firm returns for an
upgrade in its auditorium
Mayer Brown is a distinctively global law firm, uniquely positioned to advise the world’s leading companies and financial institutions on their most complex deals and disputes.
With extensive reach across four continents, Mayer Brown is the only integrated law firm in the world with approximately 200 lawyers in each of the world’s three largest financial centres - New York, London and Hong Kong.
Style first installed DORMA moveable walls at Mayer Brown back in 2007, soon after announcing its exclusive UK partnership with DORMA. Since then, the law firm’s moveable walls have maintained their functionality, however after 12 years Mayer Brown decided to update its flexible space with the latest operable wall technology.
With this in mind, and working with Architect, MCM Architecture, and contractor Overbury, Style installed 2 DORMA Variflex operable walls and 3 Skyfolds - the vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic moveable wall, also from the DORMA Group.
With the new moveable walls in place, Mayer Brown is enjoying acoustic ratings of 52dB Rw for the DORMA Variflex’s and 59dB Rw for the Skyfolds. This ensures that presentations, lectures and speeches can run concurrently and undisturbed when the space is divided.
With semi-automatic functionality from the Variflex’s and fully automatic functionality from the Skyfolds, staff also enjoy greater ease-of-operation when opening the room to cater for a large audience, or closing the walls to allow separate events to run in privacy.
The DORMA Variflex moveable walls both feature glass pass doors, allowing for natural light to enter into the corridor when the wall is in position. The Skyfold moveable walls descend effortlessly into position at the push of a button, and are hidden in a ceiling cavity when not in use. Each of the walls features a stylish Kvadrat Canvas fabric finish that complements the chic and modern interior design of the auditorium and the meeting rooms.
“Having worked with Mayer Brown previously, its interesting to see the incredible advancements in our product range and overall proposition in the last 12 years,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.
“The technology in moveable wall solutions has really moved on, with automated solutions becoming far more the norm, and its a pleasure to be chosen by Mayer Brown once again to provide their flexible room configuration.”
