The showroom includes the new Cisco Spark Board integrated into Sven’s high end meeting showroom, one of the only Cisco Spark Boards installed and available for demonstration within Central London. The showroom is designed to inspire furniture dealers, interior designers and architects in a stimulating yet relaxed environment.
The showroom also demonstrates huddle systems such as the Cisco DX80, combined with Sven’s own huddle room furniture pods and 2-4 person collaboration space designs.
Sven Christiansen Managing Director, William O’Brien says, “Advances in technology, changes is working practices and in individual working styles mean that the office has changed dramatically over the past few years. The time is right to firmly position ourselves in London’s most creative quarter”.

VideoCentric Managing Director, David Shimell commented, “Offices, meeting rooms and collaboration spaces will very rarely not have a need for technology today. In fact, technology is becoming part of the furniture of any room in business. The seamless integration of furniture and technology in the new London Design Studio helps demonstrate how designers can work with the technology from the onset and not have it as an add-on at the end, which can often have a negative effect on the look and feel of the whole room.”
Conveniently located just four minutes’ walk from Farringdon Station and directly adjacent to the new Crossrail station, businesses can come and visit the new showroom and see the Cisco Spark Board and Spark platform in action. VideoCentric can also demonstrate further Cisco, Lifesize and Polycom Video Conferencing and Collaboration Technologies, and meet with organisations at the London Design Studio for business outcome and planning discussions without being led by any particular manufacturer.
