Workplace design has a significant role in creating productive and inspirational environments. Using seamless surfaces in office design is not only innovative and practical but can also add a stunning design aesthetic to the overall layout.
From an interior design studio in Beijing and a luxury Parisian fashion label to architecture and engineering headquarters in Australia, below are four standout office designs that hero seamless surfaces to create inspiring work environments.
FNJI Interior Design, Beijing
FNJI Beijing: Captured by Mobai & Yu Ling
Sci-fi film settings are the inspiration for the Beijing headquarters of FNJI Interior Design, with its futuristic aesthetic delivering a surreal visual experience. The design is markedly organic, a ’naturalistic futurism’ replacing sharp edges and glossy veneers with curved forms and soft, textured surfaces evoking seamless uniformity. The result, overall, is an office space, which looks like the interior of a spaceship if it were modelled off the cratered, otherworldly terrain of the planets themselves.
Hayball Architects, Melbourne
The Hayball head office on Flinders Lane in Melbourne is the birthplace of award-winning designs, which made the design process a tough challenge as it had to live up to pretty high standards. Completely at home in the Melbourne CBD, the office design manages that tricky balance between corporate and casual. In combination with black finishes and exposed ceiling pipes, X-Bond has been applied to the flooring to create an industrial-chic vibe.
Jacquemus, Paris: Captured by Julien Thomas Hamon
Weaving multiple aesthetics into one, the Jacquemus office is classic mid-century meets upscale Parisian chic. The minimalist decor accompanied by a few iconic pieces delivers an uncluttered and practical space for work while still reflecting that signature Jacquemus brand identity as a good head office should.
Deswik, Brisbane: Captured by Cieran Murphy
Designed by Gray Puksand, the Deswik head office in Brisbane fulfils that all-important balance between functionality and cultivating a vibrant, connected culture. Regular offices share the multi-level space with a bar, games zone, kitchen, and dining areas spread out across three levels, creating the perfect ‘work hard, play hard’ environment. Smooth and seamless, X-Bond flooring complements the warehouse feel without compromising that sleek professional vibe.
