You could make a wood box-similar to what you would make as a cover for a ceiling beam-and place it over the conduit. I am assuming there is electrical wiring inside the conduit and that is the only way they could have done the wiring because of the brick wall.
Hello. I’m not sure what solution you’re looking for but commonly wire mold is used for covering exposed wiring. We are in a log cabin and it’s throughout our home. I have custom painted it to match the log walls. I’m not sure if this is something you could consider or how wide and thick your conduit is.
You could paint it to match the brick and have it blend in.
Alana: Here's what Home Depot says can help! Good luck!
I bought some neoprene wiring covers that zip. They are black and very neat. I purchases on Amazon. If your mortar is black or grey that would work. If not I would go with paintable wire covering or put a tall floor lamp in front of it to distract.
Make a standing shelf with an offset in the back to hide the conduit. Meaning don't put the back of the shelf all the way back to where it meets the side . Leave a gap where it will snug up against the conduit. Make it as narrow as you like and use it for shelving. Put in a few personal items to brighten your work space or make it a little wider to hold paper and supplies in little baskets. If you are not handy IKEA has narrow tall shelving units that house cd's. They are tall and you can stand one of them in front of the conduit.
Can you share a photo? That will really help with ideas! :)
Hey Alana! Is the conduit silver, I happen to love the industrial look of the brick and exposed ducts and conduit! Granted, I may be thinking of a different kind of conduit! LoL! But maybe you could just go with a little bit of an industrial theme in your office to make it work? Or if you can share pictures maybe I could see what you are working with and be a little more helpful! Lol!
Hope you can figure it out so you can enjoy your new office!
I would embrace it by wrapping it in silk vines or ribbons. Make it art.
