Modular Office Sofa CGI

Richard Benson

June 2, 2020 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop, ZBrush / by Richard Benson

This eye-catching office space was styled and planned by our skilled designers, then
produced in CGI for a new furnishing client. Their distinctive modular sofas, screens and linking tables can be arranged in an infinite number of combinations making them ideal for flexible workspaces, office meeting areas and communal lounges.

Our 3D artists have been meticulous sculpting the sofa models and manually adding creases and detail using Zbrush. We’ve also included the technical draft sofa renderings that we sent to the client for sign-off, ensuring that we had captured the fabric textures and details correctly. Finally the office scene is recreated with the clients furnishings in 3DSMax and rendered with Corona Renderer, adding finishing touches and colour adjustments in Adobe Photoshop and Fusion Studio 16.
