AKA Design is delighted to have won an order for eleven custom branded editing desks for ITN Productions. Crafted from oak and leather, with white lacquer details and built-in acoustic racks, the studio furniture is destined for installation at ITN's expanding Grey’s Inn Road facility.
As part of the original facility build, AKA supplied Avid S6 audio desks and grading furniture, and these new edit desks are to be installed in a production area at ITN as part of another upgrade to the facility.
ITN Productions is the creative and commercial arm of ITN, producing bespoke content for broadcasters, businesses, brands, rights holders and digital channels. It recently won its third Emmy Award in three years, for Best Current Affairs Documentary, Children of Syria, beating stiff competition from HBO, NBC and Netflix.
“We’re deleted to be involved in this new expansion of ITN Productions’ facilities and glad to see our original audio and grading desks have been well received by both editors and clients,” comments Guy Wilson, AKA Design’s Managing Director. “We worked closely with Olly Strous, ITN’s Head of Post Production, to integrate some feature requests into the edit desks, including the ITN logo together with an integrated quiet rack for the CPU. The desks fit perfectly with their technology and will provide ITN Productions staff with very stylish, creative areas in which to work.”
