Steelcase Mid-century office

Look at these lovely vintage photos scanned from adverts in Fortune Magazine from 1963 and 1964. I love the way how clean and elegant everything is organized, the calming color schemes and use of typical mid-century rectangular angles.

The furniture is designed by Thonet Industries and Steelcase who has been active in designing office perihelia since 1912.
