Project Brief

The brand’s logo with an X over an O, symbolizes combination, breakthrough, and innovation based on the origin, the true self. The brand’s main concept is to break the fashion stereotype and conventional images of how one should wear. Thus, the designer takes the idea of “original” into consideration, forming a minimalist environment with shades of black and white. The industrial environment with exposed pipes on the ceiling, added some chic vibe through use of metallic materials, contributing to a modern concise style of the working space. The layout is open-plan, spacious, airy, and bright with a great amount of natural lighting, dividing the whole space into display area, photo studio, meeting room, rest area and flagship exhibition. According to different timing and needs, people can quickly transition between different environments, scenarios, and emotion, boosting diverse creativity to the working process. Without use of traditional workplace partitions, ventilation and lighting can travel well to every corner of the space.

Project Innovation/Need

With different selected items and furniture, one can see the designer is trying to create different kinds of environment for different types of conversations. The space can appear relaxed, serious, private or open to everyone. In addition, with use of metal materials, the space can be adjusted with flexibility of the reusable and convertible elements, echoing with the brand’s idea of constant progression. During the first phase of planning, the designer also integrates all kinds of figures and paintings from young artists coming from different countries, infusing a fresh artistic energy to the working environment.

Design Challenge

In addition to a rather open layout, neon lights, selective furniture and items, and metallic materials are the three main elements to interpret the brand image with more details. While inspiring everyone, the interior decoration sends a clear message of the brand’s visual identity, catching customer’s attention. With lighting straps applied in the area where the staffs’ seats are fixed, the lighting is well distributed. Whereas the meeting room and the display area are adjusted with different color temperature, color palette and luminous intensity.


Designed based on minimalist style, incombustible material improves the safety of the environment. The green building material reduces veneers used on ceilings and walls. The digitized data helps simplify all the paperworks. The piping system is structuralized. With use of Electrical Non-Metallic (ENT) pipes, it is easier to be repaired and to add more to the system. The durability of reusing the material is better than PVC pipes. The use of HRV, heat reclaim ventilation helps boost the changing rate of cold/warm air, purifying the indoor air. Thus, great ventilation can provide sufficient air to the people working indoors.
