With construction being a large part of their business, the designers based the concept off of it by bringing an industrial approach throughout and making you feel as though you&#8217;ve walked onto a construction site.
The bold offices span two floors and 200 square meters, which includes an interior courtyard, and a mostly bright yellow and black color scheme. Raw building materials were used, like concrete, brick, iron, epoxy, and mesh metal, further giving nod to their construction background. The conference room was inspired by The LEGO Movie, even painting its motto on the wall – “Grab a hat let’s build something.” That very movie motto has even become Emre Group’s own slogan. The hammers on the wall are each labeled with individual

Patricia Urquiola Renovates Cassina’s HQ to Celebrate 90th Anniversary

                                To mark <a href="https://www.cassina.com/en"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Cassina&#8217;s</a> 90th anniversary, the company enlisted its Art Director, architect and designer <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Urquiola</a>, to renovate their historic <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/architecture/cassina-meda/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">headquarters</a> in Meda, Italy. The project included restoring the courtyard entrance and creating a new communal area to welcome guests, while breathing new life into these special headquarters.
The ‘Galleria’ is for employees and guests alike and now boasts a soothing palette of greens and blues, along with the installation of Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret’s futuristic Refuge Tonneau. The mobile shelter was originally designed in 1938 and was recreated in 2012 by Cassina, who closely studied the original sketches and documents to make it a reality. The structure was installed so people can enjoy a quiet moment during their work day. The light-filled room is now home to a massive wall of plants that add warmth and color to an overall cold space.

A modern interior decked out in only black and white can oftentimes be too minimal for some people, but by incorporating a variety of green plants throughout, the space comes to life. An oversized black grid structure weaves throughout the office allowing the plants to grow and evolve over time. As the plants grow, it helps create additional visual separation between spaces without closing it off. The tall white ceilings paired with white walls and dark floors gives the feeling of an open and light-filled space with black furniture helping to ground everything. The grid theme continues into the kitchen area with white tiles sealed with

Best Interior Design Posts of 2017

                                Every week we go inside some of the most incredible modern houses, apartments, and offices to get a taste of how other people live, or rather, to get a peek at their taste. Most spaces leave us with severe design envy, ready to forward our mail directly there, or at least dream of it.

                                What do the vast majority of millennials believe a workplace has to offer to inspire creativity and productivity? That’s the very question companies large and small are working hard to answer: Pixar’s headquarters is famous for the playful sway of their interior design. Google takes on an office-as-playground atmosphere to promote inspired thinking. And Apple? They&#8217;ve built the mothership – an enormous campus epitomizing the open floor plan design to compel interaction. So, who has it right?
