Singapore-based Orbit Design Studio, offer a refreshing approach to office and workplace design with their Procter and Gamble project in Mumbai.
The new office exudes a tropical look and feels to serve as an escape from the crowded city. Natural materials and local artisan craft were deliberately adopted to create a haven-like aesthetic.
This inventive use of natural materials paired with vibrant colours and patterns departs from the typical mundane greys and muted tones found in most modern offices. The decision to reflect the traditions and ethos of the office’s host community allows for experimental elements and furniture pieces.
High back lounge seating typically wrapped in felt, wear a new look with rattan screens as a replacement. The usual skimmed drywall that would envelope a given office space is replace with stucco textures and earthy tones. Forest green hues and wood lattice patterns, coffered ceilings and bamboo cladding all work towards creating a truly unique office aesthetic and experience. Even the use of heritaege furniture elements along with bold graphics and artwork blend both the old and new within this dynamic space.
