That's kind of overkill for a space like that, but it would work for surround sound just fine.
For something like an office, most people go with high quality active monitors for great stereo sound,
or even just use headphones, but it just depends on what you want it for.
If you actually want surround sound in there, then again those speakers will work.
For me personally I think they would be too overwhelming in that small of a space,
BUT... at the same time, you already have the speakers so it costs you nothing to try them and see how you like it.
If you find them to be too much for the space, you can always just replace them with different speakers,
and your wiring and other audio equipment will already be in place, so it might be an easy swap-out.
